Make Canada pesticide-free

Midway resident write in her concerns about the use of chemicals to fight invasive species.

An open letter to the Prime Minister of Canada and all MPs and the Premier of British Columbia and all BC MLAs

Noxious weeds must be controlled.

But why use poisons to control weeds when hand pulling them, stepping on them, mowing and other natural methods will do a much better job at much less cost?

Pesticide companies poison three million people each year!

Poisons get into soil, plants and in our drinking water, where it poisons everything,

including birds. With bird populations down, grasshoppers and other problems flourish.

The people in Canada deserve to breath clean air, drink safe water and eat pesticidefree food.

Make Canada a Pesticide- Free Country.
