Anti-Glyphosate Activist and Wildlife Biologist Speaks Out
Former St. Croix MLA candidate Rod Cumberland is suing his former employer, the Maritime College of Forest Technology, for wrongful dismissal. Cumberland believes that his stance on the negative effects of spraying the herbicide glyphosate is ultimately what led to him being fired as an instructor.
"I didn't set out to be Enemy No. 1," said Cumberland in an interview with CHCO-TV.
Cumberland's highly anticipated court case was scheduled to begin on April 4 but has been postponed to August 22 due to the judge contracting COVID-19. In the meantime, CHCO-TV sat down with Cumberland to discuss the court case and his stance on glyphosate for an all-new episode of Southwest Magazine airing on May 5 on Southwest Magazine.
Patty Borthwick of St. George lost her daughter Hillary Hooper to suicide in December of 2020. To honour Hillary's memory and to celebrate what would have been her 29th birthday, Borthwick and a group of community members including Hillary's friends, organized the second annual Hillary's Hope for Hunger in downtown St. George on Saturday, collecting food and monetary donations with all proceeds going to the St. George and Area foodbank.
The event was also Borthwick's way of raising suicide awareness in the community. At least 2500 pounds of food were donated and over $10000 in monetary donations. There is also a new bench in memory of Hillary featuring her favourite flower, the sunflower, near the St. George community gardens.
