“If it’s got 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D as a mixture, it’s Agent Orange and it has dioxin — I guarantee it,” said Dwernychuk, who recently retired as chief scientist from Vancouver-based Hatfield Consultants.

AGENT ORANGE CANADIAN ISSUE-- Discovered in N.B., Ontario, Sask. & several other provinces. Our health & the next 10 generations can be affected by these toxic spray programs by our governments.
"It's extremely persistent," Dwernychuk said. "It can live in the soil for hundreds of years. It can be ingested into the human body, it can be absorbed through the skin, and it can be inhaled. Those are the three modes of entrance into the human body. And it attaches itself to fatty tissues, and these tissues can be in your blood and the lipids in your blood, in any organ, brain — you name it."

Agent Orange panel opposite of independent, Bisson says

MPP Gilles Bission has a good reasons why he is concerned and they are very like the concerns we had/have with the CFB Gagetown investigation project. We have always said you can not investigate yourself and expect the truth come out!!!

Agent Orange a Canadian Issue!

The spraying of Agent Orange, Agent Purple, and Agent White authorized by our Canadian governments at both the Federal and Provincial level over past numerous years is a significant health risk problem for Canadian citizens both military and civilian.

Agent Orange, Purple, and White are code names for toxic herbicide mixtures used to kill brush and small trees on military lands, hydro power lines, brush along highways, and other types of lands that needed to be cleared for such purposes. These activities have been carried out for over four decades by various means from airplanes and helicopters to spray trucks and backpacks carried by soldiers and civilian linemen and work crews along highways.

The recent findings in Northern Ontario further reinforce the Agent Orange Association of Canada Inc’s. position. Our governments have been using these toxic chemicals to a far greater extent than the Canadian people realize. As time passes we are very confident more locations will be found across our great land and more people will finally know why they have contracted some very serious and life threatening diseases. The list of diseases that are associated with Agent Orange that have been identified by the Institute of Medicine can be found here on our web site. www.agentorangecanada.com/diseases.php

Although the majority of our efforts to date have focused on the spray programs at CFB Gagetown in New Brunswick because of the size and scale of these programs and the number of years they were conducted we are also supportive and will advocate for all of Canada as other locations are identified.

To the people of Ontario I extend our offer to provide whatever assistance and information we can to those who live in or have worked in those areas identified as contaminate with these toxic herbicides including Agent Orange.

We all need to become aware of the health risks associated with these toxic herbicides not only for our health but for the future health of our children. With this information we can inform our physicians about our health concerns as a result of exposure and we can also work with our elected officials to seek fair compensation, medical testing, and programs to help those suffering from diseases as a result of toxic exposure to these herbicides.

Remember, our governments and their agencies approved these chemical mixtures for use and so they are also accountable to the people they exposed to these dangerous herbicides and they need to provide the required help.

The following links will provide you with the information we have obtained for the Ontario locations:
