Canada’s proposed ban on bee-killing pesticides is under threat.

Global pressure right now could help protect this critical ban -- and save the bees.

A,

I have some alarming news about our fight to save the bees.

I just got off the phone with Canadian government officials: they are postponing the final decision on the ban on bee-killing neonic pesticides that you worked so hard to achieve.

The reason: apparently there’s “new scientific evidence” that must be considered. But we know the science is clear -- neonics are killing bees.

We need to make sure that pesticide giant Bayer is not feeding corporate studies to the government to kill the proposed ban -- before it’s too late for the bees. The Canadian government needs to know that the world is watching -- and that we won’t let them put Bayer’s profits before the critical health of our bees.

Tell the Canadian government to protect the proposed ban... on neonic pesticides.

The bees are in trouble in Canada. Just this past summer, one study showed deadly levels of neonics in soil in Southern Ontario killing bees. And another study showed that wild bees, just as important for pollination as honey bees, are at risk of extinction.

The good news is -- it’s not too late. There’s still time to save the bees. But Canada needs to act quickly to ban the neonic pesticides that are killing the bees -- not pander to pesticide giants like Bayer.

Save the bees -- tell the Canadian government to uphold the proposed ban on neonics.

Again and again SumOfUs has been at the forefront of the fight for the bees. Just this past week, you won another victory against new neonic pesticides in France.

Pesticide giants like Bayer and Dow will stop at nothing to keep their bee-killing products on the market. But when we act together, we can, and have, stopped these Agri-giants from putting profit over our planet.
