This week a group of international scientists has confirmed that neonicotinoid pesticides are harming bees, birds and butterflies.
Their assessment of 800 peer-reviewed scientific studies confirms that neonic pesticides should be banned. Last year, the European Commission announced a moratorium on certain uses of neonics.
Health Canada is responsible for pesticide regulation in Canada. Provincial governments also have the power to regulate use and sales of pesticides within their boundaries.
