Description:   Survey of B.C. residents on pesticide use. Includes: In the past twelve months, have you or anyone else applied any pesticides to your home lawn or garden? By pesticide I mean any chemical substance that is used to control insects, weeds, fungus, and rodents, or to improve the appearance of lawns and gardens.

If you were provided with information and tips on how to have a weed-free and insect-free lawn or garden without using chemicals or pesticides, how likely would you be to try these alternative practices instead of chemicals or pesticides?

% agree: Cosmetic pesticides used in my community pose a threat to the environment, including wildlife, air quality, and ground water, Cosmetic pesticides used in my community pose a health threat to children, Cosmetic pesticides used in my community pose a health threat to pets such as cats and dogs, Cosmetic pesticides used in my community pose a threat to my own personal health

Would you support or oppose your provincial government passing legislation that would restrict the use and sale of cosmetic pesticides? Under this legislation, retailers would only be allowed to sell pesticides to licensed individuals or professionals with a permit to use pesticides for non-cosmetic purposes only. Would you support or oppose your provincial government passing legislation that would require companies and manufacturers to clearly label all of their products that contain substances that have been linked to an increased risk of some cancers?
