The Federal government has recently admitted spraying Agent Orange and Agent Purple at CFB Gagetown, in New Brunswick, in 1966 and 1967. We have reports of spraying going on during the 1950s and the 1960s, and in far greater amounts then the few drums the government claims to have sprayed.

Agent Orange contained extremely toxic byproducts known as dioxins. Agent Orange was used as a chemical herbicide, or plant killer. It penetrated the waxy covering of leaves to poison the entire plant. It was created from an equal combination of 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid.

Exposure to dioxins has been associated with severe birth defects, certain rare cancers in humans, respiratory problems; impotence; chloracne; developmental and immune system disorders, and other serious health problems.
