PinP Declares Manitoba's Minister of Agriculture a Liar.

by Larry Powell

Manitoba's Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development, Ron Kostychyn, (r.) is a liar.

Way back in September of 2012 (over 1 1/2 years ago), Kostyshyn  promised me he would read a peer-reviewed article I had written. Entitled "Field of Nightmares."  It appeared in the well-respected Canadian journal "Alternatives - Canada's Environmental Voice." It documented much of the research which has been done, linking the popular herbicide "Roundup" to adverse effects on the health of livestock, wildlife, crops and even humansIt also placed the official position of the Government of Canada on the record, which was, it was "aware of the research, but, it did not raise immediate risk concerns that would have triggered regulatory action.”
