Tordon 101 focus of rallies held across N.L.
Demonstrations were held across Newfoundland and Labrador on Saturday to protest government's continued use of an herbicide.
Tordon 101 was the focus for demonstrators in several areas of the province, including Bannerman Park in St. John's, the Community Garden in Stephenville and Leon Cooper Memorial Park in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
Malone said the goal of the rallies was "to show government some physical evidence so that Newfoundlanders really are opposed to this toxic spraying and we don't need to be doing it anymore."
"We need a new way of thinking about these things for the future," said Malone. "We can't just say, 'Oh Health Canada thinks it's alright or we've been using it for decades.'"
Signatures were gathered at the rallies, and Malone plans to take these petitions to government to build the group's case.
