Cooper appointed to pesticides board

Kathleen Cooper of Lindsay has been appointed to a three-year term on Ontario’s Pesticides Review Board.

The board advises the province on restricting the use of pesticides beyond the limits set by the federal government’s Pest Management Review Agency.

Ontario has, for example, banned householder use of lawn and garden weed and insect killers.

Cooper is a lawyer with 30 years of experience with environmental law issues.
