Pes­ti­cide by­law of­fers ex­emp­tions

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

The new Char­lot­te­town cos­metic pes­ti­cide by­law has been in the news re­cently. Some peo­ple are say­ing too much spray­ing is still hap­pen­ing. Deputy Mayor Mike Duffy, who is also the chair of the en­vi­ron­ment and sus­tain­abil­ity com­mit­tee, said that cit­i­zens could ap­ply for ex­emp­tions to the by­law. The city will send out a tech­ni­cian to in­spect the lawn for an in­fes­ta­tion of in­sects. What the Deputy Mayor didn’t say is that this tech­ni­cian is a for­mer city em­ployee and the home­owner is charged $50 for the in­spec­tion.

Things that make you go hmm… Lloyd Kerry, Char­lot­te­town
