No wellness in herbicides

Reader hopes the village of Ashcroft will ban its use of Roundup.

Dear Editor

I’ve been seeing these signs posted in Ashcroft: Caution area sprayed with Roundup, contains the active ingredient glyphosate. It’s my understanding that this is poison. Are we still insisting that wellness awaits you in Ashcroft? If so, what does spraying with poison have to do with promoting health? It does seem like false advertising. But more, it seems like a blatant lie.
