Note from a Canadian Agent Orange researcher

Hi, I'm a Canadian Agent Orange researcher living in Nanaimo BC.
I lived in CFB Gagetown from 1958 until 1964.
You may have heard that the U.S. Army sprayed Agent Orange (AO) on Canadian Forces Base Gagetown, New Brunswick, in 1966 and 1967. This is true. This is all Ottawa wants you to focus on.
What you probably haven't heard is that the Canadian military sprayed AO on CFB Gagetown from 1956 until 1964. Hundreds of thousands of gallons of it. Then, starting in 1965, they switched to Tordon 101 which is more famously known as Agent White. Millions of pounds of this herbicide were sprayed over the years.
The details of this - the largest intentional contamination by a country of it's own citizens in history - briefly emerged in the early 80's and then again in 2005. Ottawa was not successful in covering up the story in 2005, mostly due to the fact that we had obtained Access to Information Act documents by then that showed the true extent of our poisoning.
In 2005 a class action was launched against the Attorney General of Canada. Canada's response was to make Dow and Monsanto their co-defendants. Due to the stalling and dirty tricks of this trio, we have not yet been granted certification to procede with our (now four) class action(s).
By some estimates this mass-contamination involves about 1,000,000 people, and many have already died.

I look forward to discussing this further with all of you.
