Ontario workers suffering from the side effects of chemical 2,4,5-T are outraged at the insubstantial compensation they’ve been offered.

    Boy this article sure hits home.

    My friend as a young man joined the US army to fight in Vietnam were agent orange was used unbeknownst to soldiers.

    When he returned to Canada he became weak and when he got the news through his soldiers association that he was probably suffering from the affects of agent orange.
    We requested information and Don then knew he was going to die.

    The soldier association wrote to the US gov. requesting benefit help and they advised that they could not help him as it was an undeclared war?

    I helped him put a letter together along with his doctors findings and we sent it off.

    After many phone calls later to the US base handling his claim and many months they advised it was in appeal and because of so many claims it may take a year.

    Unfortunately he died and along with that his claim died also.

    I am really surprised to see any form of agent orange still being manufactured anywhere in the world as it is definitely proven to be a carcinogenic that kills not only weeds but people also. Look in the history.

    One thing I forgot to mention in my last post, is not to go after money but medical benefits that will help these peoples quality of life until they die.

    Medical benefits are a better source of income as they do cost lots of money going forward.
