Abstract/Contents:Discusses pesticide legislation disagreements in the town of Hudson, Quebec. "Chemlawn and SprayTech are expected to argue that Hudson has overextended its municipal powers by passing laws on substances already regulated at the provincial and federal levels...Hudson counters that there is nothing to preclude municipalities from adding a level of pesticide regulation." Also discusses health concerns and over-use of pesticides on lawn turf.
