This answers some of the questions I've been asking myself lately - what about "neonics" in canola? The PMRA is currently looking into the harm they cause, but mostly in corn crops. And this interview still leaves unanswered the big question - WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO POLLINATORS - especially honey bees? This issue is, I believe, a sleeping giant on the verge of busting open, big time! And it should!

Government,as I see it, doesn't care a rats
rear about anything, except bulldozing the economy….But at What Fateful costs and consequences?
This is another example, as with the "sage grouse." Wonder if those scientists will be
getting the "pink slip" or muzzled in some other fashion. As in the Silence of The Labs.
