Quebec beefs up pesticide ban
Toughest rules in north america; Gardeners advised to get back to basics in their fight against dreaded weeds
A new era in pesticide use has begun in Quebec with the banning of many domestic products that have chemicals considered toxic to humans and the environment.
The third and final phase of Quebec's Pesticide Management Code, first introduced in March 2003, went into effect yesterday.
With its ban on 20 active ingredients, 210 lawn-care products are now off the market, giving Quebec the toughest standards in North America.
