Farmer Sues Monsanto - Glyphosate

Sask. farmer leads class action glyphosate lawsuit.

Had to know it was gonna happen. Why not, I hear the payouts are insane. 2 Billion was the last one.

With the payouts that have been awarded I think Bayer will be wishing they never bought Monsanto. Does anyone know the farmers name that suing Monsanto? Does anyone know if the Non Hodgkins lymphoma rate is higher in farmers than the regular population?

The science is very clear, it is not.

Try on CTV. They mentioned his name, Saskatchewan farmer. I was not paying enough attention to remember the name they mentioned.

These lawsuits are a total joke. Not sure how they can prove this. Was it the couple in Alberta who was saying how they thought it was safe because the guy in the commercial was spraying it in his shorts so they figured it was safe and no protective clothing was required. Since when is ignorance a defense? Everything is right there in plain English in the MSDS that says what to wear for ppe and safe handling

The only people getting rich here are the lawyers.

2 billion dollar damages will never be paid out. They'll appeal and appeal until it's reduced significantly or settled out of court.

This has nothing to do with glyphosate anyway, it has everything to do with people trying to cash in off large companies. If they aren't attacking glyphosate they'll move on to the next one.

It was only a matter of time. The (Liberal) **** ambulance chaser from Regina couldn't resist. There's 2 blatant lies in the Producer story - one that there's any health risk and two that the so-called farmer contacted Merchant. I see he claims to have used Roundup twice a year in his "custom app" business. He must have really been pushing the envelope to use it that often. Unfortunately the science no longer matters - I wonder how long before Bayer throws in the towel.

If long term health is your primary concern then farming shouldn't be your choice in career.

If all this guy(or any of the claimants) did in their life was spray roundup in a sterile environment then there might be a case, but guaranteed he sprayed a plethora of other chemicals, ate processed food, didn't get 8 hours sleep regular, had stress in his life, etc, etc.

This farmer should be shunned...
