Statement on Bee Health Working Group Report

“I would like to thank the Ontario Bee Health Working Group for its report, which provides options for mitigating the potential risk to honey bees from exposure to neonicotinoid seed treatments. Members of the group include beekeepers, farmers, agri-business representatives, scientists, and officials from both the federal and provincial governments. They all share a common interest in ensuring that Ontario’s agri-food sector remains strong and continues to be a leading contributor to our province’s growth and prosperity.
