Calgary alderman have shelved a proposed pesticide bylaw at a committee meeting Wednesday.

After hearing public input, Ald. Druh Farrell, disappointed with a bylaw she believes achieves very little, put forth a motion that essentially puts the bylaw on the backburner.

Farrell, along with colleagues Pincott and Ceci didn't feel the bylaw went far enough and essentially decided no bylaw was the same approach.


Alderman have been wrangling with the issue of cosmetic pesticide use - and the bylaw before the committee put further restrictions on the use of pesticides, but did not address the complete ban of these products.

Alderman didn't give any indication of a timeline for bringing the cosmetic pesticide issue back to the table.
