Hear how farmers from the Global South and our invisible workforce of migrant workers here in Canada are harmed by exposure to ever more toxic pesticides. Herbicide resistant weeds and new genetically modified crops keep farmers on a pesticide treadmill. Learn about the growing health and environmental risks and industry’s tactics to maintain business as usual and discredit public concern.
