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?
