Stop Pesticide/Herbicide Spraying!

659 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We Support Our Foresty Industry and families. We do NOT support Spraying. Spraying Poison is obviously WRONG. Stop Spraying, Start Hiring ! Manually and mechanically thinning forests creates more jobs than spraying and saves the environment. A Win-Win situation all around! We are telling our Government and the Foresty Industry it is NOT ACCEPTABLE to spray herbicides on our forests and wildlife, people and homes. For more information, contact stopthespray@gmail.com To do something right now, write a letter to your local press, radio/newspapers etc. Contact the woodlot owners in your area and ask them to switch to FSC forestry..forestry that does not believe in chemicals!! Ask them to not spray near our communities. Call or Email the Minister of Environment, Mark Parent, and tell him we don\'t want spraying anymore! Its banned in other areas, we want it banned here...We pay taxes, we put these people into office, we need them to step up and we deserve to be protected! Spread the word! {PS- once you hit SIGN PETITION you might get a page asking for money.. this money request is not from us and doesn\'t go to us..this is just something this website does; you can just close the window or to see if your signature made it, just hit the back key, then click up above on SIGNATURES.}

    Glyphosate spraying has one purpose - to produce single-species tree farms. This reduces biotic diversity and thus the long-term forest heritage of Nova Scotians. This damaging practice shoudl be banned.

    Please stop spraying the forests, and in doing so, killing plants, animals, and humans.

    When we take care of the natural environment we are strengthening our our economy, and our futures. Glyphosate in herbicide sprays has been linked with numerous serious human diseases as well as being found in all fish downstream of where it has been used. No more! Stop the spraying of glyphosate. sHORT TERM FINANCIAL GAIN IS NOT better than long term health. Please, no sprays.

    Spraying poisonous chemicals on our forests is ruinous on the forests, the animals, on the water system. It is senseless. Better to manually and mechanically manage thinning and providing real jobs while protecting the population and land ! I have already seen what damage your Agent Orange causes!!
