The City of Montreal announced on Thursday that it will ban the use of the pesticide glyphosate, commonly known as Roundup. Mayor Valérie Plante tweeted Thursday morning, “Our administration is taking a new, strong environmental step to protect the health of Montrealers. We are banning the use of a major agricultural pesticide, glyphosate, on our territory.” Glyphosate is a herbicide and crop drying agent used in the retail product Roundup, which is available at stores such as Réno-Dépôt and The Home Depot.
