Please tell Ontario Government to ban lawn pesticides

Dear TEA Supporters,

As you know, Ontario has promised to enact a ban on lawn and garden pesticides that would protect 12 million Canadians from toxic lawn chemicals. If the legislation passes, it will be a huge step forward for public health. However, as you can imagine, the chemical industry is fighting it every step of the way. Would you take a moment, right now, to send a quick on-line message to the Environment Ministry to support the pesticide ban?

All you need to do is click here:

Simply fill in your contact information in the space provided and in the comments box you can type, "I support a province-wide ban on the sale and cosmetic use of pesticides." You don't need to write anything else. When you're finished, click "Save" to submit.

Thanks so much and all the best,
