We intend to celebrate the Supreme Court decision regarding pesticides
and municipal by-laws. We are planning a "Pesticides Awareness Day" on
Parliement Hill, to give citizens groups, environmental organizations
and public health organizations the opportunity to share withthe public,
Parliamentarians and government officials their knowledge and experience
on pesticide use reduction, by way of displays and exhibits. As you
know, the amendments to the Pest Control Products Act have not yet been
introduced and this event would also serve as a reminder to the
Government of the need for new legislation.

Minister of Health. (invited)
