Pesticide Regulation in British ColumbiaMicroform - 1988
The Environmental Appeal Board in British Columbia has, among other duties, responsibility for hearing appeals against the issuance of permits under the Pesticide Control Act for pesticide use on publicly owned land. The major regulated users of pesticides are the Ministry of Forests and Lands, forestry companies, railways, public utilities, municipalities and regional districts. The Ombudsman's Office has received many complaints from interested members of the public concerning the lack of opportunity to participate effectively in the decision-making process for determining the safe use of such substances. This systems study makes recommendations for the timely and meaningful participation by all interested parties in such decisions.
