Stop the Spraying of Pesticides in New Brunswick

50 Signatures Goal: 100

One of the main active ingredients used in pesticides is called Glyphosate and this chemical kills many types of plants and, even though it is frequently denied, can cause harm to animals and people. Glyphosate is currently being sprayed in nothern New Brunswick forests and between Moncton and Miramichi. Pesticides in the air are not controllable and may settle into waterways, homes, lawns, wooded areas, etc. Pesticides can distroy species and when this happens it reduces biodiversity Biodiversity is important because: "all living creatures are supported by the interactions among organisms and ecosystems. Loss of biodiversity makes ecosystems less stable, more vulnerable to extreme events, and weakens its natural cycles." AND "A biologically diverse natural environment provides humans with the necessities of life and forms the basis for the economy. Everything we buy and sell originates from the natural world. "
