Bees are in danger all across Canada. Beekeepers from New Brunswick to Alberta are reporting massive losses to colonies in 2018. Bees are responsible for pollinating one third of our food so it’s an alarming trend.
Health Canada’s ban on several bee-killing neonic pesticides won’t take effect for up to five years. It’s thanks to you that the ban is coming at all -- but bees need action now before their colonies collapse completely.
Here’s the plan. If we can prove that folks in Canada want an immediate ban on bee-killing pesticides, Health Canada will feel the heat and be pressured to act.
A powerful poll would generate headlines to prove there is massive and unwavering public support for a ban now - not in 5 years. We have a prominent polling firm ready to pick up the phones this week -- but we need to raise $5000 to get the poll running.
Can you chip in today to save the bees?
