Mother sues TDSB alleging daughter subjected to racist bullying

Exposed to roundup for nearly a decade

According to documents filed in court, Paquette, the principal plaintiff, was exposed to Roundup between approximately 1997 and 2005 on a farm in L'Assomption, just northeast of Montreal.

She did not administer the product herself, but handled it on a regular basis and was in contact with crops where the herbicide had been sprayed, the court filing says.

Paquette alleges that in 2005 she was diagnosed with stage 4 chronic non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system.

"The plaintiff has suffered, and continues to suffer, serious bodily injury and pain and suffering," the application to authorize the class action reads.

Paquette, who has not been able to work since her diagnosis, "has also suffered and continues to suffer pecuniary damages," the submission says.

The suit accuses Monsanto and Bayer of "breaching their obligations" by misrepresenting Roundup and its active ingredient, glyphosate, as safe products.

At the time of publication, Monsanto Canada had not responded to CBC's request for an interview. In a statement released last week, the company defended Roundup's safety and said it was not carcinogenic.

Company ordered to pay $2 billion US

Ten days ago, a California court ordered the company to pay more than $2 billion US to a couple who alleged that Roundup had caused their cancer.

This was Bayer's third consecutive loss in the U.S. for similar lawsuits.

Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency is required to reassess herbicides every 15 years and, after such a reassessment in 2017, it approved glyphosate for continued use in Canada, with some additional labelling requirements.

In January of this year, after reviewing hundreds of studies that were used in 2017, Health Canada maintained that approval.

Quebec woman faked being a nurse for 20 years.
A woman who worked as a nurse at the Jonquière hospital for 20 years has turned out not to be a nurse at all, according to Quebec's Order of Nurses. The order said this week it was looking into the case. The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, worked in several different departments in the hospital. She had no training and was never certified. Another employee with the regional health board became suspicious when the woman tried signing up to a training course earlier this spring. The suspicions led to an internal investigation, and soon after, the woman's firing.
