New Brunswick's largest forestry company and its wealthy owners have urged members of the provincial legislature to not give in to what they call "misinformation" about the herbicide glyphosate.

J.D. Irving Ltd. co-CEO Jim Irving told a committee of MLAs on Tuesday morning that a ban on the product would curtail the company's ability to maximize the output of its logging leases on Crown land.
