Stop Agri-business from hijacking a science-based decision

imidacloprid_banner_notextWe are witnessing corporate power in Canada this week in a place you don’t want to see it – a parliamentary committee.

The Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food is holding hearings on the Pest Management Regulatory Agency’s (PMRA) decision to phase out the use of the neonicotinoid pesticide, Imidacloprid. It has already requested and received an extension on the deadline so it can submit a report to the PMRA.

Please join us in reminding the MPs on the Agriculture and Agri-Food Committee that they represent us, not big chemical companies. Sign and send your letter below.
