Health Canada, Protect the Bees and Reject New Insecticide!

Health Canada, Protect the Bees and Reject New Insecticide!

The bee population is currently on the decline throughout the world.  This is a concern as 25% of the world's crops are dependent on bees.  While there are several reasons for the decline in the bee population, insecticides are one of them.

Research has shown that neonicotinoids are found in the majority of dead bees, and only in a minority of alive bees.  This shows that neonicotinoids negatively affect the bee population.  However, Health Canada is still approving a new insecticide that is similar to neonicotinoids.

Tell Health Canada to protect the bees and reject this new insecticide!
