Niagara Falls mayor wants to know if Agent Orange used in the Falls


by Tim Parent, 610 CKTB News

Niagara Falls will launch an investigation to determine if the chemical Agent Orange was used in the city.

At tonight’s council meeting, Mayor Jim Diodati will ask city staff to look in to the use of the herbicide by the province which recently admitted the former Ontario Hydro used Agent Orange back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s to clear land along power line corridors across Ontario.Diodati wants to know if it was ever sprayed in the Falls.  He knows the city never used it but he can’t say for certain if the province did.

Agent Orange was used heavily by the Americans during the Vietnam war to clear away dense jungle foliage and expose the Vietcong. Its use has been linked to several types of cancers, Parkinson’s disease and other health problems.
