From the Canadian Press:
Environment Minister John Gerretsen says Ontario’s proposed pesticide ban seeks to look at the “cumulative effects” of chemicals like 2,4-D. He says the federal government looks at such chemicals on a “product-by-product” basis.
The provincial government has put forward a list of 80 chemicals and 300 products that will be part of a regulatory system to be invoked if the bill passes.
The exact products and ingredients to be banned in Ontario will be laid out in the regulations.
The full text of the bill is here: Bill 64, Cosmetic Pesticides Ban Act, 2008.
The lists of 80 chemicals and 300 products are available at the following links, in PDF format.
