To all bee lovers,
The Ontario Beekeeper's Association has been working hard to have the neonicotinoid pesticides responsible for these losses removed from use in Ontario. As part of their strategy, the OBA has developed the attached petition requesting the Premier of Ontario to follow the lead of the European Union and ban neonicotinoid pesticides.
We are asking you to sign this petition to add your voice to the beekeepers, farmers, environmentalists, scientists, and citizens who want to see an end to this toxic contamination of our pollinators, wildlife, water systems and land.
Please circulate this link to all your friends: www.change.org/SaveOntariosBees If you have a website, blog or Facebook page, or if you Tweet, please share the petition on your sites. If you would like to bring a hard copy of the petition to an event, you can download the PDF.
Together we can protect our bees!
