In 2004, Canada banned the use of weed killers.
Bill Graham, former Minister of Defence, publicly admitted to the spraying of agent orange and indicated that Canadians who were injured during the spraying will receive compensation (http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2005/06/14/newagent-orange). Readers are encouraged to go to any search engine (e.g. Yahoo) and put the word autism and they will receive millions of pages on the topic.
The Toronto Star announced in the April 7, 2007 issue of their newspaper that Canada is suing Monsanto and Dow Chemicals for the spraying of agent orange in Oromocto, New Brunswick, Canada:
Monsanto says it faces suit from Canada over Agent Orange
Monsanto Co, reported yesterday that it and Dow Chemical Co., have
been sued by the Canadian government over their role in the use of
defoliant Agent Orange at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown.
Monsanto and Dow, which both manufactured Agent Orange products, have been sued in the past for the use of Vietnam War-era
herbicide. The defoliant has been linked to cancers and other ailments.
(Toronto Star, April 7, 2007)
Ministers, Peter MacKay and Greg Thompson announced through the CBC that the government is ready to pay compensation to those who lived/worked in Oromocto while Agent Orange was sprayed on Base Gagetown in 1966 and 1967 who can prove they were affected by the dioxin.
Apparently, Monsanto and Dow gave a settlement of $96.5 million. However, the government has offered a $20,000 one-time settlement to anyone afflicted by the spraying, but most of the injured have expressed that the amount can hardly be called sufficient.
For Alison Graham, the case history in the book, Autism:The Teratogen Fallout--this can hardly compensate for her life, much less her future. So, the matter continues.

Autism affects one in 165 Canadians (ASBC) and one in 150 Americans (CDC) and increasing at an alarming rate.
Autism affects the communication area of the brain in the degree to which the individual falls on the autism spectrum.
As other areas of the brain tries to compensate for the damage to the communication area, many persons with autism are gifted in certain areas. Many are described as savants although this is not the norm.
Although some persons with autism might have other problems such as retardation, autism itself is not retardation.
Persons with autism can be trained and educated.
However, persons with autism can only learn by visual methodology—they think in pictures. As Temple Grandin writes, “Autistic people think in pictures” (Grandin, Temple. Thinking in Pictures: and other Reports from My Life with Autism. New York: Vintage Press, 1996).
This book Autism: The Teratogen Fallout by Dr. Olga Graham discusses correlation and causation with information that has never been published. It is in two parts complete with pictures and documents that are classified and are being published for the first time. Also included are the societal effects of autism in keeping with sociological paradigms and solutions.
