Tenants worry about potential asbestos exposure

People who live in a Victoria apartment tower that is undergoing renovations are worried about health risks after WorksafeBC stopped work over concerns that asbestos has been disturbed.

A notice posted on the front entrance, in Victoria’s James Bay neighbourhood, says work inside the 14-storey building has been halted after a Dec. 14 inspection found a ceiling texture coat in the building’s hallways had been disturbed.
