There’s no longer any doubt: Toxic pesticides are killing our bees.

A new report from the world’s best scientists reveals new evidence that dangerous pesticides called neonics are responsible for the epidemic of bee deaths over the last few decades. [1]

But billionaire chemical companies like Bayer, Monsanto and Syngenta are desperate to keep their bee-killing pesticides on the Canadian market -- and their army of lobbyists met with 68 MPs and high level staff over the last year alone. [2]

Our government is dragging their feet. Instead of swiftly banning bee-killing pesticides, they’ve commissioned a study that won’t even release a recommendation about whether to ban neonics for over a year. [3]

Will you sign the petition calling on Health Minister Ginette Petitpas-Taylor to expedite the plan to ban neonic pesticides now?
