Government Silence on 3 Decades of Agent Orange Use in Kirkland Lake!

 Did you know, Agent Orange, Agent White, Agent Purple, Agent Rainbow and a concoction of other chemicals were sprayed around Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Canada for thirty years? No? I’m not surprised! I was born, raised in Kirkland Lake.. and even i didn’t know about it! Until that is, i got sick!

I know for a fact, there are entire families in Kirkland Lake that have died from cancers. I know people with neurological disorders, or disorders which began in their mid-age! There are -50- recognised diseases, associated to Agent Orange exposure!!

I planted trees for Department of Lands and Forests(now called Ministry of Natural Resources(MNR) for 3 summers in my early teens; and thus, filed my case with them(i had no choice, as i planted trees); to see if health conditions which persistently followed me in life; is from exposure? This brain tumor is not my first tumor! I had a breast tumor(benign) removed in KLH in 1999; discovered in 1998; but.. i were told it were found a year or more prior; without a Dr. informing me! i did not follow a complaint file; as i just wanted the tumor out! 


Below are the links i’ve obtained and saved thus far! Also i will post the WSIB contact number, and Special Agent name, number: in charge of WSIB case files involved with workers in Hydro, Forestry, Mining, Farming, Camps, etc. directly below:

BELOW ARE WEBSITES, NEWS STORIES ON AGENT ORANGE, AGENT PURPLE, AGENT WHITE, AGENT RAINBOW; AND A HOST OF OTHER CARCINOGENIC CHEMICALS! 1969, A CHEMICAL SPILL OCCURRED OUTSIDE OF KIRKLAND LAKE!  My SOURCES INFORMED ME OF A SECRET CHEMICAL DUMP SITE WITHIN THE TOWN OF KL; NEAR AREA OF THE TIM HORTONS; BY THE POWER PLANT ON GOVERNMENT ROAD!!

To date.. Ministry of Natural Resources, the Government of Canada, nor that of Ontario; have made public announcement on this issue; nor have they taken strides to contact any/all workers, exposed to this toxic chemical. In essence, i feel; they are letting us all die, to avoid responsibility, compensation pay-outs, and class-action lawsuits. How else can we explain the silence, on this very serious matter?
