One last point in regards to the blue-green algae found in the Woolwich Reservoir. Last Saturday's Woolwich Observer ("Algae bloom makes Woolwich Reservoir off limits") advises us that besides all the other health warnings (no swimming/drinking etc.) that any fish caught right now absolutely should not be consumed.

In the Waterloo Region Record (July 16/13) there is a story titled "Beekeepers push Wynne to consider ban". She met recently in Guelph and talked to the Ontario Beekeepers Association. They are trying to get her to ban neonicotinoid pesticides which they are convinced have been playing a major role in massive bee deaths in Ontario and Quebec.
