Humble dandelion splits readers

Don’t waste your time plucking them

Not only has Dalton McGuinty’s pesticide and herbicide ban made our province uglier by blighting every public green space with insidious yellow weeds, he has consigned all homeowners to untold hours of misery pulling up dandelions instead of relaxing with family and friends.

Worse yet, the impact of adding an incalculable and infinite supply of airborne dandelion seeds to the environment has sentenced Ontario’s allergy sufferers to a springtime and summer of agony.

Whichever politician pledges to reverse this public policy fiasco will have earned my vote.

Duane Rendle, Toronto.
