Canadian experts 'shocked' at Agent Orange contamination in Vietnam

Breaking News

The dangerous herbicide Agent Orange is still contaminating soil and fish in Vietnam at an alarming rate, a Canadian environmental firm has found.

Vancouver-based Hatfield Consultants studied the contamination levels in the area of Da Nang, a large coastal city in central Vietnam, and found contamination to be 300 to 400 times higher than what is considered acceptable.

"We were very shocked," Thomas Boivin of Hatfield Consultants told CBC News on [April 30]. "The levels were significantly higher than we had anticipated."
