Sask. farmer leads class-action lawsuit alleging Roundup caused his cancer
A Saskatchewan farmer is leading a class action lawsuit alleging that the widely-used herbicide Roundup caused him to develop cancer, teeing up a legal fight with one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.

The farmer, identified in a statement of claim as 62-year-old Gary Gadd from Moose Jaw, regularly sprayed the weed killer on his farm and others, according to his lawyer, Tony Merchant.

“He was a heavy user for a couple of decades,” Merchant told CTVNews.ca. He said his client received training “a couple times” on how to safely handle herbicides. “And he has said to me, nobody was told to pay any attention to the fumes.”
