Neonic Court Case

Wednesday, November 21, 2018 9:00am - Friday, November 23, 2018 5:00pm
Federal Court of Canada - 180 Queen St W, Toronto, ON

Our suit against the PMRA and a neonicotinoid pesticide company is headed to court! After repeated attempts by the federal government and manufacturing companies to have the case dismissed we're finally going to get our case heard.

The suit seeks a court order declaring the PMRA’s decade-long practice of registering neonicotinoid pesticides or neonics, for use in Canada without the scientific information necessary to gauge the risk to pollinators to be unlawful. The case also challenges the PMRA’s failure to consult the public as required by the Pest Control Products Act.
