The Council of Canadians Kent County chapter is part of the 'Happy Campers' encampment at Kedgwick River, New Brunswick seeking to stop the spraying of the carcinogenic herbicide glyphosate.
The CBC reports, "A small group of environmental activists has set up an encampment in a clearcut near Kedgwick River to try to prevent it from being sprayed with glyphosate. The 10 people from EcoVie say they intend to disrupt any spraying on the Crown land, which is licenced to Acadian Forest."
The news article adds, "[Spokesperson Jean] MacDonald said the group plans to stay in the encampment as long as there is glyphosate spraying in Madawaska County." She says, "We do have protective gear in place, [but] we're hoping that industry will not actually come and spray us."
