Trust Health Canada on pesticide issue, meeting hears

Trust issues are a big thing nowadays, as are a willingness to accept science. 

The national regulator of pesticides was on hand from Ottawa, as was an industry group called CropLife Canada; along with Peter Gordon, a voracious opponent of pesticides, the Canadian Cancer Society and the lawn spray company Weed Man.

The take-away seemed to be that if using a reasonableness principle, there isn’t a drop of science worthy of local pesticide bans, leaving such bans as a strictly political issue
