Corporate influence and people power: Upcoming think tank on industrial forestry

Each year, industrial forestry corporations in Canada spray hundreds of thousands of hectares of publicly-owned forests with glyphosate-based herbicide. In 2015, the World Health Organization deemed this chemical as “probably carcinogenic [cancer-causing] to humans.”

How are multinational corporations like Monsanto influencing research, lobbying governments, and suing those who disagree with them? What can we do about it? Join the discussion at the Council of Canadians Thunder Bay’s second Community Think Tank series.

Where: Superior High School, 333 High St. North

When: Tuesday, April 19 6:30-9:30
