It's Time: Phase Out Cosmetic Pesticides Concert, Films & Action Blitz

Jun 18 2008 - 6:30pm

Killing us softly

Arusha Action Film features political action blitz

Arusha Centre

Just how committed are Calgarians to dandelion-free parks? Calgary is the largest city in Canada still using cosmetic pesticides. Some of these chemicals could be killing us. Robin McLeod of the Coalition for a Healthy Calgary says The City of Calgary uses Killex 500, a cocktail of 2, 4-D, Dicamba and Mecoprop that has been “pervasively linked to cancers, neurological impairment and reproductive problems,” on public land.

Calgary City Council will be reviewing bylaws to legislate phasing out the use of cosmetic pesticides.

Arusha’s June Action Film event is an evening of short animated films, music and a political action blitz to send a message to City Councilors to pass tough bylaws against using cosmetic pesticides. Read more »

What are you doing for environmental justice this summer?

Sierra Youth Coalition is organizing another amazing political activism bike trip.

Join us for the 2008 bike trip to raise awareness on this most pressing issue! The tar sands are Canada's fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions, and at the current speed of development, could quickly become Canada's greatest contributor to climate change. It is also degrading Alberta's natural heritage with toxins and clearcutting, and posing serious health threats to communities in the region. Read more »
