I am a Canadian who has read the many
studies and reports (including The House of Commons Standing Committee on the
Environment and Sustainable Development's report "Pesticides: Making the right choice for the protection of health and the environment") that clearly
demonstrate the harmful effects of Pesticides on Human health (especially
children) and wildlife.
I, therefore, demand the immediate phase out of all
pesticides used in agriculture that have been linked to compromised health
(especially among children).
I further demand that all Cosmetic
pesticides/chemicals whose exposure has been similarly linked to compromised
health (especially among children) be immediately banned from manufacture, sale
and use in Canada.
I also urge that immediate consideration be given to
new legislation that will assist Canadian farmers in making the transition from
reliance on these harmful products to more soil, ecological and health-friendly
agricultural pest-management practices.
My concern also extends to all
Genetically Modified Organisms whose longterm impact on the health of Canadians and wildlife is so poorly understood. This includes scientifically altered species that incorporate pesticide-resistance such as Monsanto's "RoundUp-Ready Corn" and
"RoundUp Ready Soy". I demand a ban on the use, incorporation, sale, availability or
planting of any crops or resulting produce that incorporate any of these
pesticides, chemicals and genetic modifications in Canada.
I ask that you act immediately and with
the health of Canada's children, wildlife and seriously declining ecosystems in
The time to establish a new, healthier paradigm in pest-management is
long overdue. I look to you to begin the journey in this direction.
Please kindly advise me, at your earliest convenience, of the steps you will
take to attend to these matters.
We also encourage letters be sent by fax and good old
Canada Post. So, here is the appropriate information.
