Abstract/Contents:Describes the legal battle between lawn care companies and environmental activists on spraying pesticides on public and private properties in Canada. Defines the precautionary principle - "chemicals should be treated as dangerous [until] proven innocent" - and lists it as one reason the no-spray bylaw was upheld by the Supreme Court. Raises questions about the values of private property and the environmental powers of local governments.
