Sri Lanka: first country to ban glyphosate

"Nobody told us it could be dangerous" Sri Lanka is the only country in the world that has tried to totally ban glyphosate. A decision taken back in 2015, just after a major health crisis hit the country. Envoyé spécial went over there to meet local farmers and better understand the ban on this weed-killer.

    Canada just dropped the ball on this one and sided with the corporations so Glyphosate for all up here.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to not drink water from a field?? Why would the government ban an essential product for our food production?
