Campaign for Pesticide Reduction!
MR is a volunteer group of citizens, with membership
in almost all the major environmental organizations in our
community, who have been meeting over the last two years
to raise awareness of the dangers of commonly used lawn
care and household chemicals.
At the heart of our various outreach, education and lobbying
efforts is the belief that our collective health is threatened
by the long-term effects of and combined exposures to the
man-made chemicals we experience in all facets of our daily
We firmly believe that use of potentially dangerous chemicals
must be avoided if safer alternatives exist, especially
since there are many natural alternatives available for
home and yard applications.
CPR! MR members are also part of a loosely-based,
nation-wide network of like-minded grassroots groups sharing
research, information and strategies to make Canadian communities
safe for our developing children, families and pets.
Our strength in seeing this work to completion depends on
the contributions of a wide variety of community members.
If you are also concerned that chemical use in our community
should be restricted and, eventually, limited, please contact
either our spokesperson, Maria Raynolds at 604-467-2783
or the CEED Centre Society at
