Make Canada a spray-free country

Weeds should be controlled naturally. There is no need to use deadly poisons.

An open letter to Prime Minister Harper and Premier Christy Clark

Dear Prime Minister and Premier:

You are still allowing spraying of poisons in Canada, which is harming thousands and thousands of Canadians. It is time it stopped, before it contaminates Canada’s waters.

It has already poisoned our air and food.

I was driving on Hwy 3 in Midway recently, at 12:10 p.m., when they were spraying above the schoolyard in Midway. The school children were out on the playground playing, while I watched the spray drift right through Midway. The schoolyard was saturated with poisons.

Weeds should be controlled naturally. There is no need to use deadly poisons.

Make Canada a spray-free country before more people die of these deadly poisons.

Gladys Brown,
