Province Must Maintain Existing Pesticide Legislation to Continue Protecting Expectant Mothers, Children and Pets
The Pallister government must preserve legislation that reduces the risk to children and pets of exposure to synthetic pesticides for non-essential purposes, NDP MLA Rob Altemeyer said today.
“The current law reduces the risks of exposure to synthetic chemical pesticides, and was introduced after a lengthy consultation with Manitobans,” Altemeyer said. “Let’s not turn back the clock. Let’s keep these strong protections in place for expectant mothers, our children and our pets.”
