child playing in fieldCAPE is a national leader in the effort to ban lawn and garden pesticides – toxic chemicals linked to cancer, neurological illness, and birth defects. CAPE-led campaigns helped to establish these bans in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Quebec, and Ontario. The Ontario legislation took some 250 toxic lawn products off store shelves.

We are currently working in Manitoba to ensure that the proposed province-wide pesticide ban is not destroyed by industry. Please send an email to Manitoba’s Minister of Conservation Gord Mackintosh to show him that Canadians support this ban.
