On February 20, 2008 the District of Sechelt Council unanimously adopted a Bylaw to ban the cosmetic use of pesticides.

Sechelt joins over 135 Canadian communities who have adopted similar bans, including Vancouver, West Vancouver, and Gibsons. The District's next task will be to assemble an educational program to help residents move from synthetic pesticides to less toxic or organic products.

The SCCA would like to congratulate Elizabeth McNeill, chair of the Pesticide Committee of the Clean Air Society, and the many volunteers who worked determinedly on this issue for many months.
