Ontario is creating a team to lead an investigation into herbicide spraying in the wake of published reports that forestry workers were exposed to Agent Orange and other toxic defoliants in decades past. The Toronto Star has reported that records show forestry workers in areas of northern Ontario were exposed to the toxic mixture during aerial spraying operations from the 1950s through 1970s.
