pesticide bans legal

I guess this is already the case in some localities in the States, but up here it has just become official that municipalities can legally ban the use of pesticides in their cities or towns. Chemlawn and Spraytech (never heard of them), took the municipality of Hudson, Quebec to the Supreme Court over their ban on lawn chemical use. They lost...7-0.

So that oughta open the floodgates for other towns and cities to follow suit. I know it'll soon be illegal to use lawn chemicals in Halifax and their are another 15 municipalities in Quebec that are following Hudson's example. Toronto city council is considering doing the same.

Guess I'll put of purchasing a 100gal spray tank and stick with the backpacks for now. Looks like I'll be buying an aerator and a dethatcher instead sometime down the road. Oh, joy.
