The environment not city priority
“Blue Dot P.E.I. has issued a news release congratulating... Charlottetown as the first municipalities on P.E.I. that recognize their citizens’ right to live in a healthy environment” (Guardian July 27).
Was it not just a couple of weeks ago that Charlottetown city council voted down a ban on cosmetic pesticides?
How can it be recognized for giving its citizens the right to a healthy environment when it still allows the spraying of toxic chemicals that cause cancer, respiratory problems, poison our water, pollute our air, and endanger our children, pets and wildlife.
Charlottetown council is not a steward of our environment.
It is filled with hypocrites who don’t have the courage to support what is right - the banning of cosmetic pesticides. And yet, they take credit for ensuring the right to a healthy environment. Surely this is a joke.
They cannot do both. Katie McInnis Stratford
