Weedman’s spraying was making his wife sick. She explained that the use of the product Fiesta on neighbouring lawns was making her sick – trouble breathing, headache, stomach, bowel; she’s been sick for 5 weeks. She said that their neighbour to the left (when facing the house from the street) had agreed to cease spraying, however the neighbour to the right refused and intends to spray again in the fall. She is seeing her doctor next week (for the first time), since she has no medical ‘proof’ of impacts currently. The last spraying reportedly occurred one week ago yesterday. Her symptoms used to last 3 days to a week, but are now lasting longer – for weeks. They have lived at the residence since the 1960’s. She claimed that Health Canada had told her that Fiesta was toxic, while the Weed Man manager told her is wasn’t.
