Some continue to dictate to the rest of Canada how to live and they don't even own a lawn.
We need to create a law that punished people for LYING purposely to support their cause.
"SUPER SLAPP" Legislation – strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence Misinfored (lying) critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense and REAL FACTS IN A COURT OF LAW until they abandon their criticism or opposition. Charitalbe Status revokation would be immediate.
Reducing toxic chemicals
Re: Pesticide ban will mean weed takeover: Pallister (Jan 16).
From Ontario to Newfoundland and Labrador, millions of Canadians are now protected from exposure to toxic lawn pesticides. This means our most vulnerable populations — our children — can safely play in parks, backyards and sports fields. Manitoba's kids deserve that same protection.
The science on the matter is strong and consistent. Pesticide exposure is linked to cancer, neurological illness, respiratory problems, birth defects and more. We also know that provincewide bans work.
In Ontario, concentrations of some of the most ubiquitously used toxic lawn chemicals went down by up to 90 per cent following the ban. And Ontario's parks and lawns are still beautiful. Kudos to Manitoba Conservation Minister Gord Mackintosh for standing up for Manitoba's kids. This issue is not a matter of esthetics; it is a matter of protecting public health.
