Major farming groups and experts agree that substantial pesticide reduction and adoption of organic practices are essential for Sustainable Agriculture and food security. See PCN’s federal submission, and ask your MP to support truly sustainable agriculture.
THANK YOU for taking action! Municipalities across Canada have a concerning number of old asbestos cement water supply pipes that can contaminate drinking water. Public response means that this petition is certified — the Federal Government must publicly respond to citizens’ request that it take immediate steps to assess and act on the health risks.
Mar. 23, 2023 / A major peer-reviewed publication reports that many aspects of child development can be affected by radiofrequency “wireless” radiation, and screen time.
Leading international scientists find impacts on bonding, speech acquisition, behaviour, socialization, learning and addictions. Cancer risks are also increased.
Recommendations include use of wired technologies, that wireless radiation exposures be “ALARA” (as low as reasonably achievable), that physicians query use of tech in well-child visits, and research to prevent and investigate electrohypersensitivity.
A healthy future depends on healthy soil, for healthy food and resilient agriculture. Prevent Cancer Now urges Canada to reduce pesticide use in alignment with international goals. Glyphosate is a good place to start. It is by far the most-used pesticide in Canada, and it is under court-ordered scientific review in Canada and the US.
Into the Weeds, Jennifer Baichwal’s documentary about glyphosate and cancer, can be streamed free on CBC Gem.
The film follows groundskeeper Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, whose case was first to go to trial in a series of lawsuits involving tens of thousands of plaintiffs claiming Monsanto’s (now Bayer’s) weed killer Roundup, or its industrial counterpart Ranger Pro, contributed to their cancer.
The film follows this trial, while considering the systemic effects of the world’s most widely used herbicide.

Natural gas is neither clean nor green, and is not a “bridge fuel.”
Sales of iphone 12 continue in Canada, while France stopped sales due to excessive radiofrequency emissions. There is no record of Industry Canada testing the phones. Testing loopholes might not protect Canadians.
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission should heed Mother Nature’s warning and deny the present proposal. In today’s weather, much less the future, the commission is unlikely to meet its goal to keep nuclear waste secure for hundreds of years.
Consultations close on July 14th, on the development of Canada’s 2030 Biodiversity Strategy, to achieve promises made at the COP 15 held in Montreal last December. Canada’s high and increasing use of pesticides must be reversed.
“In the dim light, there was a flash of gold. A Monarch chrysalis, attached to a horseradish leaf.”
Take a moment to experience the astonishing emergence of a Monarch butterfly from its chrysalis, in a series of photos by Meg Sears.
Federal tax dollars for Carbon Capture and Storage are a direct subsidy to a very profitable but toxic fossil fuel industry. The Canadian government’s billions for this unproven technology provides a delay for fossil fuels carbon emissions to continue unabated through 2050.
Current plans for addressing climate change are incompatible with an acceptable destiny. Our future health, as opposed to dollars, must become our priority.
The natural systems we depend on are threatened by human activity, resulting in what the United Nations calls a triple crisis of climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss.
Social justice, health and environmental organizations are calling on MPs to pass Canada’s first environmental racism law. (Canadian Coalition for Environmental and Climate Justice, including PCN)
