2 thoughts on “Ontario City using Banned Pesticides – Dandelion Winning – GuelphMercury – City’s made a confusing shift on its pesticide policy

  1. Let the record show that I have worked in the Landscape Maintenance industry for more than 15 years.  Our company has been IPM accredited for years now, even before it was mandatory.  Guelph council has been over-run by activists and dingbats that are unable to use logic and common sense.  Our industry fought hard to educate and properly inform citizens and city staff regarding pesticides but to no avail.  Now, many of the same council reps have flipped sides temporarily in order to accomodate their own personal agendas.  That is what my column was referencing.  Unfortunately, much of my sarcasm in the column was edited.  Anyone can cry "cancer causing" but it's up to you to educate yourself. Rash and uneducated decisions will always lead to unfortunate consequences!             Jason Dodge, Guelph
