They debated whether to support a region-wide pesticide ban for the better part of an hour, voted against it — and then because of a procedural issue, ended up keeping the issue alive by voting to only receive a staff report on the matter.
Niagara Region’s integrated community planning committee Wednesday afternoon considered a staff report related to a request from beekeeper George Scott.
He asked the Region to implement a ban on the non-farm use of neonicotinoid pesticides. Non-farm use examples are flea-control medication for pets and bug sprays.
Before committee members discussed the report, Scott made a presentation reiterating evidence he said shows the devastating effects of neonicotiniods on bee populations and the potential effects to human health.
As a child I nearly died in an emerg. room because my father sprayed the grass to kill lawn moths and I laid on it. It was a week before the swelling in my face allowed me to see. http://www.gopetition.com/petition-comment.php?cid=1192955
It is becoming a common trend to ignore ranting like this. This woman even tried to have her neighbor arrested for spraying RoundUp on his own Property.

Quick Reference for you Sheryl, regarding the word SAFE and Cosmetic Pesticide Use :
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.
