This article is from a Canadian paper. They seem to be advanced in the fight against pesticides.

What's your take?

Pesticide controls in the works; Residents want bylaw, survey shows - In the near future, the only thing you may be allowed to spray on your lawn in Kingston could be water.

A city committee is set to draft a bylaw that would severely limit or possibly outlaw the use of cosmetic pesticides on private property in Kingston.

The bylaw is a response to a public opinion survey done by the city that showed the majority of respondents - most of whom live in a house and spend some of their time gardening - wanted to restrict the use of synthetic herbicides and pesticides as other towns and cities across Ontario have done.

The only thing around here is a lot of states have already pushed laws that communities can not do bans. It is only up to the state government

Steve 06-18-2007 12:35 PM

Oh that is interesting. I guess there has been a lot of lobbying at the state level to push this through.

tiedeman 06-19-2007 08:29 PM

Well, their has actually been some laws that were reversed at the local level by the states. The only thing that I know local communities do here is ban phosphorous.
