Good News for the Land
On March 5, 2003, the Quebec government signed into law the Pesticide Management Code, banning the use of most lawn care herbicides, insecticides and fungicides in that province. No spraying will be allowed on public or municipal lawns or near schools or daycare centres; within three years, that will extend to private properties. Most "non-essential pesticides" (2,4-D, mecoprop, malathion, carbaryl, dicofol, benomyl, captane and chlorothalonil) will have been removed from the garden centres. Quebec's home gardeners will have...to go organic." (Canadian Gardening, June 2003)
