altFirst Nations in Ontario have run out of patience. For 43 years, the forest industry has been conducting aerial spraying of glyphosate herbicide on Indigenous lands – a “rain of death” used in forest management practice that has slowly been killing off a wide range of animals, plants, fish and insects. First Nations have tried to stop this practice since the 1990s through a variety of measures including meetings with logging companies and government officials, protests and reports, but all to no avail. The “rain of death” keeps coming.
 
 
Now, members of the Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Elders of the North Shore of Lake Huron say they will be going to court to force the Canadian federal government to live up to Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850. That treaty guarantees First Nations in the area the right to hunt, fish, gather berries and use plant medicines in traditional territories. The TEK Elders say that by allowing the aerial spraying to continue, the Trudeau government is violating this treaty and the Constitution Act of 1982, which reaffirms those rights.
 
“We’re done waiting,” Raymond Owl, one of the founding members of TEK, told the press in April. [1] Formed in 2014, the TEK Elders group is comprised of Elders from 21 bands in the area.

DearJason Kenny,

 

Thank you so much for accepting responsibility for turning off the taps to BC.

Your friendly "overworked and underepresented" environmentalist.

 

What the %^&*$#@ are you thinking shutting down Alberta's oil exports to BC?

Your not so friendly oil industry.

Your not so happy oil patch worker.

Canadian wheat exports to Italy are still low due to the use of glyphosate. Italy, the country that chose this ban on chemicals in the European Union, did not return to its position, Radio-Canada reported.

Italy, one of Canada's two biggest wheat buyers, stopped ordering in large quantities after learning that some local farmers used glyphosate to ripen grains, Radio-Canada said. The result: a 70% reduction in Canadian wheat imports for six months, from November 2017 to August 2018.
