The Ministry of Environment is consulting on regulations that will allow cosmetic pesticide use, but limit the application to commercial lawn care companies or other licenced applicators. We have chosen not to address each and every point of the proposed regulations, for the simple reason that to do so would miss the fundamental problem with this legislation – it does not solve the problems posed by cosmetic pesticide use and it does not reflect what British Columbians have told you in several rounds of public consultation. British Columbians want and deserve a ban.
