Do you think that such a pesticide ban will add more jobs or decrease them?

Pesticide ban means job cuts: business owners (http://www.guelphmercury.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=mercury/Layout/Article_Type1&c=Article&cid=1173698872029&call_pageid=1050067726078&col=1050938501375) - The city's decision to draft a bylaw banning the cosmetic use of pesticides is raising a few eyebrows among lawn-care professionals who say they're reluctantly changing, even though it means job losses in their field.

At least one city councillor disputes that claim, saying more jobs are likely to be created from the ban, which seeks to make the city greener while also reducing health risks.

I think that no matter what is will eventually come. How soon, who knows?
