WHAT: Federal Court Judicial Review Case Challenging Health Canada’s Renewal of Glyphosate

TIME: 9:30 a.m.

DATE: Thursday, January 30, 2020

PLACE: Federal Court of Canada, 180 Queen Street West, Toronto

Safe Food Matters Inc. (SFM) and its president Mary Lou McDonald will be in Canada’s Federal Court in Toronto on Thursday, January 30, 2020, to challenge Health Canada's 2017 renewal of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, and the subject of a US$2 billion award in the US (under appeal), and the basis for various class actions being launched in Canada.

In taking the regulator to court, McDonald is asking for judicial review of Health Canada’s decision to reject the notice of objection of SFM and not establish an independent panel of scientists to review the basis for the renewed registration of glyphosate.

Andrea Gonsalves, partner with Stockwoods LLP will serve as SFM’s counsel for the case.

Founded in 2016, Safe Food Matters Inc. is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and protecting the environment through educating and fostering public engagement on the safety of food production technologies.
