PLEASE Stop Poisoning Our Province | Pesticides In Newfoundland

The spraying has already begun!


Toxic pesticides are being bombarded on the highways and scenic routes throughout the province of Newfoundland.

A pesticide that is known to persist for 10 years or more!

This is why our government is using it, in a effort to reduce the labor needed for brush cutting they are poisoning our citizens, wildlife, water & air!

Would you travel to a place that poisons its citizens?

Do you frequently drive our highways & scenic routes? - Better keep your windows up and vents closed or you will be exposed to toxic Agent White (Tordon 101) among other toxic pesticides.

Do you pick berries, hunt or fish? Do you camp, travel or make pit-stops along our roads? You'd better not - and maybe not for the next 10 years!

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
PLEASE HELP
PLEASE take the time to email both the Minister of Health and the Newfoundland & Labrador Vegetation control and ask them to stop the Spraying!

Email or call and let them know that poisoning our environment, 
water, wildlife & citizens is NOT acceptable.
