Board mediates light pollution dispute

Ontario’s Normal Farm Practices Protection Board has mediated tensions between greenhouse growers and the municipal council over night-time lights.

The municipality earlier passed a bylaw that met with opposition from the greenhouse owners and after the mediation adopted a changed bylaw that the owners find acceptable.

Leamington has a number of Canada’s largest greenhouses, most of them growing cucumbers and tomatoes.
