Neonics in the News: Lawsuit Launched!

Ecojustice* has launched a lawsuit to challenge the federal permits given to two neonic pesticides!

This class of pesticides has been linked to mass die-off of bees and is controversially still available in Canada. According to the lawyer for Ecojustice, Charles Hatt, "The (Pest Management Regulatory Agency) does not have reasonable certainty about the risks of these products, which they're required to do."

For more on the background of these permits and other related articles visit CBC News's post.
