Canadian Health Minister Anne McLellan today [Friday] introduced in the House of Commons a bill to enact a new Pest Control Products Act (PCPA). The bill, she maintains, will safeguard Canadians and help ensure a safe and abundant food supply. "The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that Canadians are better protected from health and environmental risks posed by pesticides. The bill reflects this commitment by modernising and strengthening pesticide regulation and making the registration system more transparent," said Minister McLellan.
