Canada just announced it’s planning to ban imidacloprid — perhaps the most widely used bee-killing pesticide in the world. This is a big deal: Canada would be the first country to outright ban the pesticide nationwide.

But we’ve also just heard Bayer pledged to fight the ban to stop it coming into force.

Canada’s decision to fully ban imidacloprid will be made very soon — so we must act now to make sure this historic bee-killing ban takes effect, and make sure Health Canada hears all 128,000 of your messages.
