Canada to cut diazinon use

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) proposes to phase out most uses of the organophosphate insecticide, diazinon, because of concerns over risks to human health and the environment. Some uses will be phased out "as soon as practical", while others will be allowed to continue until the end of 2012. This should allow time for users to switch to alternative products, the PMRA points out. Risk mitigation measures would be put in place during the phase-out period.
