Cosmetic pesticides, and a poetic loss to Planet Earth

The Government of BC is seeking public input on cosmetic use of pesticides as they consider whether to ban pesticides in BC; email form makes it easy at the Canadian Cancer Society website.

Screenings of A Chemical Reaction – documentary about community action against pesticides and cancer – is being sponsored by the Canadian Cancer Society. Here’s the trailer, followed by two screening times. I think the book that’s being signed might be Paul Tukey’s Organic Lawn Care Manual. But I’m not sure.

On a final sad note, we in BC – and everywhere her poetry touched – are mourning the loss of our lovely poet PK Page, whose poem Planet Earth sparked much admiration, and a frenzy of glosas in this part of the world.
