Won't have much time to write today, and since I've already filled my daily quota of boobies, here's a quick link to a Star article on the environmental hazards associated with compact fluorescents and, more importantly, how these hazards can be dealt with:

The provincial government aims to address that with new waste-diversion regulations expected soon.
"Our goal is to divert this material from landfills. We recognize we need to provide enhanced programs to do that," says Mark Rabbior, spokesperson for the provincial environment ministry.
..which is the kind of initiative the McGuinty government should be trumpeting, rather than letting this guy cruise around randomly smearing Tories.
