The petition was signed and tabled by Fredericton MP Jenica Atwin.
French Media Radio Canada and NB’s Acadie Nouvelle covered this.
In case anyone who reads these article wonders who organized the paper petition in NB…it was Stop Spraying NB (SSNB). SSNB is a registered not-for-profit ngo dedicated to a ban on the spraying of glyphosate and other similar herbicides on Crown (public) forests and by NB Power since 2015.
NB Power switched to another herbicide in 2023, which is no better than glyphosate sadly.
