Petition to the Minister of Health

Whereas:
  • Glyphosate is among the most used herbicidal chemical in Canadian Agriculture;
  • Safety test records and data on Glyphosate, based on which the ministry is supposed to have approved it for Canadian Agriculture, have not been made public; and
  • Public release of a product without releasing its safety test records may be illegal.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Health to put in the public domain all safety test records, including all raw data, that is supposed to prove that the chemical Glyphosate is safe to be used in Canadian agriculture.
