Excerpt taken from NB Media Coop:
A petition to ban the sale and use of glyphosate with more than 18,300 signatures from every Canadian province and territory was tabled in Parliament this week by Jenica Atwin, MP for Fredericton.
Glyphosate is Canada’s most widely used pesticide and the world’s most widely used herbicide. Its use in New Brunswick’s forests, particularly aerial spraying of the chemical on Crown lands on unceded Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq and Peskotomuhkati territory has been widely condemned by environmental, health, and recreation and hunting groups.
