004. Should weed killer be sprayed from helicopters over NS forests? (with Jacob Fillmore, Carrie Gillam)

Jacob Fillmore spent nine days in a tree last month to protest the aerial spraying of the weed killer, glyphosate, over clearcut lands in Upper Stewiacke. This week, we explore the politics of glyphosate spraying in Nova Scotia. Mark interviews the investigative journalist, Carrie Gillam, who has spent years researching this chemical and one of the companies behind it.
