A Parliamentary Petition to ban glyphosate and to reduce pesticide use in Canada is worthy of support. Substantial pesticides reduction and alternative strategies are essential to avoid regrettable substitutes, and importantly to support biodiversity, healthy environments, food and people. Indeed, a stated goal of the upcoming UN Biodiversity Conference (COP-15) is to reduce pesticides by two thirds. Organic, regenerative agriculture needs more support.
