Herbicide Spraying

ALERT re: Herbicide Spraying in Northern Forests

September 7, 2015. Citizens United for a Sustainable Planet and local citizens are calling on Resolute Forest Products and the Province to respond to local opposition to the spraying of Monsanto’s VisionMax, and other glyphosate-based herbicides, on northern forests. The call is in response to a petition focusing on herbicide spraying programs for the Black Spruce, Dog River – Matawin and Nipigon Forests that has documented ongoing and increasing public concern about potential harmful effects of these herbicides, and the availability of alternatives.

Two important letters about this matter:
CUSP Letter to MNR re Herbicide Petition
CUSP Letter to Resolute re Herbicide Spraying
