Aperçu

Monsanto’s Glyphosate - Forum for Concerned Citizens

Friends of the Earth Canada and Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA) invite you to meet California lawyers, Michael Baum and Brent Wisner who successfully sued pesticide giant Monsanto winning Roundup poisoning victim Dewayne “Lee” Johnson US$289m later reduced to US$78m. Learn how they are leading an ongoing litigation campaign against Monsanto in the U.S.

Both were part of the legal team that represented the 46-year-old, Mr. Johnson a former groundskeeper who used Monsanto’s herbicide Round Up after contracting cancer after long-term occupational use.

Through the legal “discovery” process, these lawyers raised the “curtain of secrecy” to expose manipulation of science, ghostwritten studies and suppression of findings of carcinogenicity of Roundup and its active ingredient glyphosate.  

They will talk about the key aspects of their case that “won the day” and spotlight key findings in their case that regulators and the concerned public should consider in addressing the registration and the extensive use of glyphosate in Canada.

Dr. Meg Sears, Chairperson of Prevent Cancer Now will provide a context setting presentation of health trends and concerns in Canada that mirror effects of glyphosate/Roundup.

Détails

This briefing is particularly timely following the recent decision of the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) to dismiss objections by Friends of the Earth and others to their 2017 re-registration of glyphosate for 15 years.
