Pesticide ban works
Re “Premier Dad beckons us ‘home’” (Aug. 26): Christina Blizzard’s criticism of the Ontario pesticide ban is completely unfair. This pesticide law is the most health-protective in North America, helping to guard our kids against cancer and neurological illness. It’s also making our drinking water safer and protecting beloved family pets. Homeowners can keep their properties beautiful using the new non-toxic products which are widely available.
