Pesticide Reduction Forum - November 24th in Wolfville, NS 

The Sierra Club of Canada - Atlantic Canada Chapter is hosting a one- 
day Pesticide Reduction Forum focusing on municipal initiatives in  
Atlantic Canada. With over 85 pesticide bylaws now across Canada 
and several Atlantic region municipalities considering similar measures, 
there are  many recent approaches and developments to discuss. The 
keynote  speaker will be Theresa McClenaghan from the Canadian  
Environmental Law Association. She has been involved in the Supreme  
Court of Canada challenge regarding Hudson Quebec's bylaw, and the  
recent court challenge to Toronto's bylaw. Other speakers will include  
Mayors, provincial MLAs, municipal staff and councillors, and  
community leaders.  You are invited to attend and we encourage you to 
make sure at least one local councillor, parks staff, provincial MLA, or 
other community leader attends from your community. This is the 
perfect opportunity for them to obtain a complete overview of the 
issues, latest developments, and resources available.
