The provincial government’s Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides is conducting province-wide consultations on the elimination of the unnecessary use of pesticides in British Columbia – so now is the time to have your say.
Please take this opportunity to ask for a cosmetic pesticide ban in the province by sending in your comments today. These chemicals cause great harm to our local waters, and viable, non-toxic alternatives exist. To answer a short questionnaire on your views on cosmetic pesticide use and to submit your comments to the Committee, please click “here”:http://www.leg.bc.ca/pesticidescommittee/.
Send your comments in by Friday, December 16, 2011. The committee plans to release its report in February 2012.
