Lawn chemicals ban means Toronto’s public spaces are going to seed - The Globe and Mail

The ban on lawn chemicals was a triumph of fuzzy-headed environmentalism. Since the town of Hudson, Que., became the first jurisdiction to enact an anti-pesticide bylaw in 1991, scores of municipalities and seven provinces have banned them. You can spray pesticides on the food crops we eat, but not the grass we walk on. You can use certain insecticides to kill cockroaches in your house, but not grubs in your grass.
