Hundreds gathered for a requiem for bees in downtown Toronto, May 24, 2014. Dead bees were poured into a coffin on the steps of Queens Park. Beekeepers carried the coffin in a March Against Monsanto, Bayer, and Syngenta — the chemical giants responsible for producing bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides. The group marched up Yonge Street and across Toronto to Christie Pits Park.

You have until December 12th, 2013 to tell Canada’s Pest Management Regulation Agency (PMRA) that you have reviewed the evidence and are concerned about the serious threat neonicotinoid pesticides pose to bees, other pollinators, our ecosystem and our food and water.

You can also email the PMRA directly, but be sure to send your name, phone number and email address along with your comments so that they count.
