This class proceeding has been commenced on behalf of all individuals resident in Canada (excluding Quebec) who have had “Significant Exposure” to glyphosate-based herbicides, commonly branded as Roundup, that were distributed and sold across Canada since 1976 by Monsanto Company and related entities. The proposed class includes both those who have developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after Significant Exposure to Roundup and those who have not.
“Significant Exposure” means use of or exposure to Roundup on two or more occasions in a 12-month period, where the total volume of Roundup exceeded 500 millilitres during at least one of those occasions.
The active ingredient in Roundup products, glyphosate, is a probable human carcinogen that has been associated with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The claim alleges that the defendants knew or ought to have known that Significant Exposure to Roundup products cause cancer; the defendants distributed and/or sold Roundup products anyway; the defendants failed to warn users and the public about those cancer risks. Instead, the defendants engaged in years of bad faith activities to sow confusion and doubt in the public about the state of the science on Roundup in order to preserve and grow their profits.
