I am the Agent Orange Guy appointed by Canada’s first Veterans Ombudsman Col Pat Stogran, I am now the Agent Orange Guy for Canadian Veterans Advocacy and I have just been told that I am also the Agent Orange guy for Our Duty.

Although most of Canada’s Navy military members never had reason to train at CFB Gagetown, New Brunswick, I would never the less like to know if any of you have had or are now experiencing medical conditions which fall under the Institute Of  Medicine (IOM) guidelines ( http://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/diseases.asp ) for the toxin TCDD Dioxin found in Agent Orange) or the toxin Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) found in Agent White.

If any of your ships had desalination drinking water systems and were ever anchored or did manoeuvres in or around the Bay of Fundy, please be advised that the runoff water (including the almost annual floods) from Gagetown empties into the St John River which in turn dumps into the Bay of Fundy at St, John, New Brunswick.

The US Blue Water Navy ( http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2011/Blue-Water-Navy-Vietnam-Veterans-and-Agent-Orange-Exposure.aspx ) have recognized the causalities caused to their Navy personnel due to the fact that desalination even with filtering does not remove dioxin.

I am interested in knowing if there is an increased number of cancers or other medical problems for people who were in the Bay of Fundy or stationed at St. John.
