Could care less what the government's reasons are. There is no excuse for spraying this poison along our road sides and wetlands. We have the most pristine environment in Canada and we're going to ruin it because of a bunch of crooked baymen. yeah SOPAC, i'm talking about you. For shame.

The minister is loose witht he truth. Un-necessary use? As the individual whos home is infested with weed and insect problems if it is un-necessary. He states the same products used in a lawn care environment are un-safe while used in road side spraying are safe. what is it? O .. and yes he does allow these products to be used on parks and ball fields. Do kids play there? What a pile of bs he shoots. He jumped on the band wagon thinking he would get brownie points. With the exception of Ontario all proviences have left the door open for trained professionals to use these federally registered products on home lawns under regulations. The minister has simply hit an easy target and helped kill an industry.

Lies. The government doesn't NEED to use it for roadside brush and alder control. Brush and alder control can effectively be done by manual means and not by chemical means. What he should be saying is that chemical control is the most cost effective way for governments to control brush and alders. Well chemicals is the most cost effective way for me to keep my lawn. Resodding a lawn every time its destroyed by the cinch bug is an expensive propersition for any homeowner. Him and the government he represents are clearly hypocrites in my opinion.
