PEI government finding excuse to prevent dangerous pesticide ban?

It appears that the government of Prince Edward Island is using the excuse of ‘municipal power limits’ to prevent bans on dangerous pesticides which are toxic and ofcourse are infamous for killing bees.

There are still many dangerous pesticides which are being used in Canada which need to be gotten rid of.

    Growing and significant trends against anti-pesticide prohibition continues in Prince Edward Island, and across North America. On April 1st, 2010, legislation was introduced in Prince Edward Island that would grant an exception status to businesses operating in the professional lawn care and golf industries. Although a limited prohibition was imposed, Prince Edward Island still permits most conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape, except 2,4-D herbicide. The legislation against 2,4-D herbicide was unfortunate and unnecessary since it plays a valuable role in protecting and enhancing lawns, gardens, public parks, playing fields, lakes, and ponds for public enjoyment. Overwhelming scientific evidence has clearly demonstrated that 2,4-D herbicide is scientifically safe and will cause no harm. Nonetheless, the government of Prince Edward Island made some right choices, and deserves congratulation. Prince Edward Island’s decision confirms that the public rejects prohibition. This public attitude was also confirmed in a recent poll conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ). The ONLY people who demand prohibition are a small group of activists with vested interests in concocting imaginary danger against pest control products. Moreover, there are dozens of jurisdictions that are stopping or rescinding or limiting anti-pesticide prohibition, or granting professional lawn care businesses with an exception status ― Alberta ( Province ), Altona ( Manitoba ), Ashland ( Oregon ), Beaumont ( Alberta ), Belleville ( Ontario ), British Columbia ( Province ), Calgary ( Alberta ), Campbell River ( British Columbia ), Chicago ( Illinois ), Durango ( Colorado ), Edmonton ( Alberta ), Everett ( Washington ), Guelph ( Ontario ), Guelph-Eramosa ( Ontario ), Kamloops ( British Columbia ), Kelowna ( British Columbia ), Merritt ( British Columbia ), New Brunswick ( Province ), Newfoundland & Labrador ( Province ), Ogunquit ( Maine ), Port Alberni ( British Columbia ), Portage La Prairie ( Manitoba ), Prince Edward Island ( Province ), Quebec ( Prohibition Invalidated When Lawsuit Defeated Ban ), Regina ( Saskatchewan ), Rossland ( British Columbia ), Salmon Arm ( British Columbia ), Scarborough ( Maine ), Saint John’s ( Newfoundland & Labrador ), Steinbach ( Manitoba ), Stuartburn ( Manitoba), Vernon ( British Columbia ), Winkler ( Manitoba ). THERE ARE GROWING AND SIGNIFICANT TRENDS AGAINST ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION. NO ONE WANTS THIS #@!!% NONSENSE ! WILLIAM H. GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G
