Montreal, Canada Proposes ‘Complete Ban on Neonics’

Washington, DC--(ENEWSPF)--December 15, 2015.  Last week Montreal, the largest city in Canada’s Quebec province, announced plans for an all-out ban on the use of bee-toxic neonicotinoid pesticides.

Environmental and health advocates are praising the ban as a sign that more and more localities in North America are finding these chemicals unnecessary to manage pest problems, and not worth the risk to pollinators . . .
