Remove Milkweed from Noxious Weeds List in Manitoba!
Manitoba Government currently has the Milkweed Plant, (Asclepias L.) listed as a Noxious Weed in our Province. This plant is a main food source for the Monarch Butterfly Larvae. If we continue to keep this plant as listed as a Noxious Weed then we will be part of the problem that is leading to a drastic reduction in Pollinators and Monarch Butterfly populations together!
The Ontario Government has already jumped the gun and removed the plant from their list in 2014, our Province should follow their example and allow this native species to grow naturally without a target on its stem.
Help join the cause and push this through to raise the awareness for our Provincial Government to do their part, and help us bring back Monarch Butterflies!
