Using Hudson Pesticide Ban ideoligy to Ban GMO FOOD in your municipality. What a joke Must listen!
Jennifer Dumoulin is basically saying JUST LIE to town Council, you will get a BAN.
Here are some real facts :
The Government of Quebec agrees that products containing 2,4-D do not pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the
environment, provided that the instructions on their label are followed, as concluded by HealthCanada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency ("PMRA") in its May 16,2008, decision on the re-evaluation of 2,4-D;
Are my pets safe if they walk on a lawn that has been treated with pesticides?
Potential exposure may occur if pets are allowed on the treated lawn before the pesticide residue has been allowed to dry. They may be exposed through contact with their paws, licking of their bodies, or through eating grass. In order to minimize exposure, after treating your lawn, it is important to follow the label instructions as well as the instructions given to you by your lawn care professional, and restrict pets from the treated lawn until it has dried. No harm is expected, but avoiding exposures whenever possible is recommended.
Is it safe to use the herbicide 2,4-D on my lawn?
Following extensive consultation and scientific review using the most current scientific methods, Health Canada has determined that 2,4-D meets Canada's strict health and safety standards, and as such can be used safely when label directions are followed. Health Canada's review concurs with the findings of regulators in other OECD countries, including the United States, European Union, New Zealand and the World Health Organization.
