White Washing Agent Orange
Green Party Leader decries CANTOX Report

The leader of Canada's Green Party is accusing consulting firm CANTOX Environmental of "white washing a major health scandal" after the firm released a report on the effects of Agent Orange spraying at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown.

"The so-called health risk assessment released on June 21 is not useful as a guide to governmental responsibilities to compensate workers and bystanders," said Elizabeth May in a July press release.

The report by CANTOX is part of the ongoing CFB Gagetown fact-finding initiative, a federally funded project hoping to determine the health risks of chemicals sprayed at the base.
