We’re all safer with science-based regulations
Crop life has posted an easy to use "send to the Premier" letter on their website. http://www.croplife.ca/web/mailmp/
You can send a letter to your MPP as well. Here's what they say--
Canadians expect the laws governing the products they find on stores shelves to be based on sound scientific principles. Ontario’s draft regulations to ban the sale and use of some pesticides are seriously flawed because they are lacking in scientific criteria.
What does that mean?
We are asking the Government of Ontario go back to the drawing board and define the scientific criteria it will use to assess current products and future innovations so that homeowners and professionals will have access to the safest and most effective tools to manage legitimate pest problems.
Your voice counts!
Make sure the McGuinty government knows scientific criteria must be the cornerstone of these regulations.
Here’s what you can do:
- Send in the letter below online to Premier McGuinty and Minister Garretson. It is easy. Just complete the attached fields and push send.
- Contact your Member of Provincial Parliament. Email, phone numbers and office addresses can be found at: http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/members/members_current.do?locale=en
- Let department officials know what you think, too, by submitting comments through the Environmental Bill of Rights
