Ontario's Bee Plan

"Ontario's move is good news for the birds and bees, and for the rest of us whose food supply depends on pollinators." "The government is proposing regulations to prohibit the use of neonicotinoid-treated corn and soybean seeds, except under certain conditions. The intent is to reduce these uses by 80 per cent by 2017.Neonicotinoid insecticides (neonics) are highly toxic to bees and have wide-ranging effects on other organisms, including impaired memory, lower reproduction rates and increased susceptibility to disease."
