A group of former soldiers and civilians who say they were exposed to Agent Orange and other defoliants at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown have launched a class-action suit against Ottawa.

The 41-page statement of claim filed before the Federal Court of Canada states illnesses ranging from birth defects in children to cancer in adults were caused by the chemicals sprayed on the woods near Oromocto, N.B.


It also lists a series of questions to be answered in the hearing, including:

-What was sprayed, when, where and how much?

-Did what was sprayed "escape" from the land controlled by the defendant?

-Can what was sprayed cause harm?

-Did the defendant breach a standard of care to the soldiers?


Hopefully some resolve will come out of this issue. The public deserves answers with no BS coating. Make them talk.

First of all... Why the hell were they spraying in new brunswick?!

If they were testing they should be doing this way up north......

I want to know what comes of this.

Dulcmier, i'm surprise you haven't started a thread about the nafta battle yet...
