2,4-D is a common herbicide used around the home and garden, on golf courses, ball fields, parks, in agriculture and forestry. Despite industry efforts claiming the safety of this chemical, there is a large body of evidence indicating major health effects, from cancer to immunosuppression, reproductive damage to neurotoxicity. This paper, prepared by the Sierra Club of Canada, aims to provide an overview of the scientific body of evidence demonstrating the toxic effects of 2,4-D.

In December 2005, the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) released a report on electricity planning, which included the recommendation that existing nuclear power reactors in Ontario be refurbished and new nuclear power reactors be built. The Sierra Club of Canada opposes nuclear power because it causes ongoing environmental damage and presents a risk of catastrophic accidents. There are less risky and less damaging sustainable ways of meeting the electricity needs of consumers and industry. In fact, nuclear power is the most expensive and least reliable option.

The Montreal Protocol is an international agreement which was designed to regulate and phase-out the use of chemicals that deplete stratospheric ozone, including CFCs amd Methyl Bromide. The presence of ozone in the stratosphere (the ozone layer) helps to block harmful levels of uv radiation from reaching the ground. The Bush Administration is threatening the future of what has been described as “the Most Successful Environmental Treaty”.
