tdc Market Research - Pesticides - Yes or No

Local governments across North America have contemplated, considered or some already have passed bylaws to outlaw a broad range of lawn and garden chemicals, including in Ontario Toronto, Peterborough and North Bay.

The issue of banning or partially banning is based upon: the present perception that prolonged use of these chemicals will: pollute the water sources; pesticides kill both good and intrusive species of insects; there is the possibility that they could trigger viruses to mutate into other viral types that are presently not controllable; are possible carcinogens for long term exposure; and could detrimentally effect the environment.

Maintenance of the status quo on the use of these chemicals are: that their use drives up property values; provide high yield for crops through the destruction of weeds; kill intrusive insects; provides necessary nutriment for plants; there is easy maintenance of lawns and plants; and the present regulation does not infringe upon the private rights of property owners.

We are polling public opinion about pesticide use not only in Urban areas but also on urban personal, business properties, farms and rural personal properties.
