Roundup is a herbicide that is widely used in Canada to eliminate weeds in residential, industrial and agriculture settings. Glyphosate, the primary chemical agent in Roundup, has been found to be a probable carcinogen linked to the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Despite its carcinogenic properties, the makers of Roundup continue to assure the public and government agencies that Roundup is safe. For over 40 years, Canadians have been using Roundup, unaware of the harm it can cause to human health.
A proposed class action lawsuit has been filed by Klein Lawyers on behalf of Canadians who were exposed to Roundup and developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The claim alleges that the makers of Roundup (the Defendants, Monsanto and now Bayer) failed to provide adequate warnings about the dangers Roundup poses to human health and were negligent in the research, design and formulation of Roundup. It is also alleged that the Defendants embarked on a long campaign to dismiss and downplay the health hazards associated with exposure to Roundup and misled the public by promoting Roundup as a safe product.
Through this class action, we seek to hold the Defendants accountable for their conduct and compensate Canadians for the injuries they have suffered.
