Pest management

Coun. Bill Armstrong wonders why the provincial government is only now proposing a pesticide ban when earlier action might have spared London the whole process of drafting its own bylaw, but then promptly supplies the reason as the same one for which municipal politicians themselves waited until 2006: "It divided the community…"

Why wouldn't the provincial government let municipalities clear the political landmines for a proposal of strictly political utility?

McGimpy is a Stalinist, but he's a rather stupid one. When he can't think of an original piece of draconian legislation he has to find one invented by someone else and copy it at the provincial level.
