Give Canadians access to permethrin-treated clothing to prevent tick bites/Lyme disease

227 Signatures Goal: 500

Appropriately used, permethrin-treated clothing is a key tool and a safe tool for preventing bites from ticks carrying lyme disease, especially in children. The ticks and the disease are on the move and children playing in nature are the most vulnerable. In Canada, we do not have access to permethrin products for spraying clothing, or permethrin-treated clothing because such uses have not been approved by our federal Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency. Please support this effort to put pressure on politicians and health officials to give us access to these products. View More Info about this topic at: www.versicolor.ca/noticks

    Why ban something so beneficial, it's ridiculous.

    Tried Deet and it doesn't work! I worry every time I venture out in the wilderness at my local Provincial and Federal parks with my family about ticks and lyme disease. This product has been used for years else where with success, why not here? We are behind in treatment and we are behind in prevention, it is cost effective in prevention (out of my pocket) than the Government to the medical bills of the lyme disease. Mr Trudeau.
