Canada seems to be on the forefront of banning pesticides. Is your area more or less friendly to fert businesses than Canada?

Waterloo eyes end for lawn pesticide (http://news.therecord.com/News/CanadaWorld/article/235201) - Waterloo is looking at a year-round ban on pesticides just a month after a regionwide summertime ban came into effect.

Lakeshore Coun. Angela Vieth is asking the city to study a total ban on pesticide use to start as early as next spring. Council is expected to vote on her motion at its next meeting on Sept. 10.

More than 100 municipalities across the province have banned potent chemicals on lawns to kill weeds and insects and it's time for Waterloo to follow suit, Vieth said.
