Ontario Pesticide Law

The government is accepting comments on the proposed law to ban the cosmetic use of pesticides.

If you are an Ontario resident, you have until May 22 to submit your comments.

Here’s what I wrote:

I fully support a ban on pesticide use and sale for cosmetic purposes. I hope
that this extends to residences, public (parks) and private (golf courses)
spaces as well as spaces owned by the cities such as along highways.
I would encourage that cities be permitted to add more rigorous guidelines
should they choose to and that provisions be put in place to add new pesticides
and herbicides to the list of prohibited substances.

I encourage you to send in your comments and to have your voice heard.

    Could you also include suggestions for safer alternatives, such as creatures that eat the pests, or plants that they find offensive?
