The weeds are winningNiagara This Week – Welland
There is a multitude of overgrown weeds on almost every island medium in the Niagara, and the region is looking worse than Detroit, Michigan.
All these overgrown weeds everywhere are a real eyesore and only show tourists visiting Niagara that the Region is broke, and so are the municipalities, since they have no money in their budgets for simple weed control and beautification.
The weed growth on these islands looks just plain disgusting. Niagara is starting to look like one big ghetto, with overgrown weeds everywhere.
With a police budget approaching $400 million annually there is no money left over for any kind of beautification projects in Niagara. That’s right people, Niagara is looking so disgusting because the police force is getting all the money.

In the video below you will see MP Peter Shurman ask the then 2009 Minister of the Environment why he is trying to Ban Pesticides in Ontario without Scientific Backing.
Environment Minister responsible for the Ontario Pesticide Ban John Gerretsen Replies with :
” All about protecting the Health and Welfare of the Children, Speaker. Health Canada never says whether or not a particular product or ingredient is safe, all they say is there is not an unnessecary risk. What all of those in the Environmental Community are concerned about is the Cumulative Effect of all these various products that have been used in our lawns, in our backyards in playgrounds and in parks. That’s what this is about.”
This is what Health Canada says about the still registered but banned in Ontario pesticide 2,4-D and safety. May19, 2009
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.
