Court case about dismissal of MCFT instructor underway

September 15, 2022
The court case regarding the alleged wrongful dismissal of Rod Cumberland from the Maritime College of Forest Technology is underway in New Brunswick. Former MCFT forestry instructor Rod Cumberland is suing the college for wrongful dismissal in 2019, which he states is due to his views and comments on the herbicide glyphosate. The college has countered that Cumberland was fired for bullying students and undermining a colleague. Two former executive directors and Cumberland have testified on topics such as the complaints received from industry about Cumberland's perspective on the herbicide and Cumberland’s interactions with administration and students.
