Please note that the article says "homeowners", not businesses.

I bet a total ban is next, minus Ag usage. The Canucks tend to get all up in arms over health issues. It's for the good of the people....what's next?....Maybe they'll settle for warning labels on Round Up bottles that say," CHEMICALS WILL KILL YOU"?????

Hey Us Canucks protects ourselves from ourselves. In Toronto and a lot of other places you can,t even light up a cigarette when you are having a drink or meal or coffee.................

Toronto has smog alert days when the city workers don,t use lawn equipment (20 so far this year!) and you can bet it is only a matter of time b4 LCO's will have to follow those rules to

the judgement from the suprem court http://www.lexum.umontreal.ca/csc-sc...hudson.en.html

I'm from Quebec Canada and it's true about the ban. Between snowstorm i go to university following a turf and yard maintenance programs and we are now working for pest free grass. our biggest problem was the compact poor clay soil. after we stop the treatment 2 years ago we get mostly dandelion and clover problem. we change our cultural pratice, and with core aeration and compost spreading the result was good. Grass is green and more resistant to droughness. Some client now wants little flower in their grass to encourage biodiversity.

Now I listen to the weeds, they are the response of mother nature about soil problems.

This is our responsability to educate the customers about alternative.

Pesticide Bans Legal

A "Major" Quebec lawn care firm continues to by-pass the laws and sprays what is required. The company pays the fines at the end of the year, case closed! This is quite the dilema;for, this company continues to grow!

The cities are now faced with "policing" the lawn care industry, at what cost to its tax payers? Can the cities effectively police a large number of lawn care operators?

These by-laws are shifiting the responsibility for "cosmetic" lawn care to the homeowner. Most accidents from pesticide use comes from the homeowner, is this the point of by-laws?

Cutntrim, if you don't even own a dethather or an aerator you are not in the horticultural business, you are a pimp for the chemical industry. Get with the program, get some hort knowledge before your business is kaput. It's people like you who give the green industry a black eye.

Kermit, you should learn how to spell and write the English language. I see in your future a return to elementary school! LOL

You have no idea what you are talking about nor do you know about my experience(s).

This Quebec lawn care company has made his reputation by ignoring the by-laws.
