Chief Medical Officer of NB stopped from checking Glyphosate
Dec 2, 2015 — There seem to be no end to the bad news about Glyphosate. Now chief medical officers of provincial Governments are not even allowed to test safety of Glyphosate, according to news headline from New Brunswick.
Before the news disappears into an unending stream of irrelevant information that sweeps across our view on a daily basis, I decided to read out the news as well as show it on screen, in a short 2 minute video.
News like this only bolsters our view that Canadians definitely need to see safety test data and record on Glyphosate and how it was ever approved for use in agriculture, forestry, and other environments in Canada.
Meanwhile, I have another news, not so bad, from the Government of British Columbia. I had asked its ministry of forest management, officially through the Freedom Of Information Act, to show me what safety assessment it had seen, with regard to preservation of biodiversity, before it approved use of Glyphosate over BC forests.
The request itself has been officially acknowledged. They are obliged to furnish me the response in 30 days. It remains to be seen what kind of response I receive. Will keep you all posted.
Thanks and cheers.
