Pesticides Retailer Fined $10,000 For Pesticides Act Violations
Guelph - Woodrill Ltd. was fined a total of $10,000 for selling pesticides from an unlicensed location and for failing to record the name and address of the purchasers of certain pesticides, contrary to the Pesticides Act and Ontario Regulation 63/09.
The company operates retail locations that sell pesticides in addition to other agricultural supply products. An inspection by the ministry identified the company had sold Class 3 pesticides and did not record the name and address of the purchaser as required by the Pesticides Act.
A second inspection was undertaken at another location, and it was determined that the company did not have a Pesticide Vendor Licence for that location.
The company pled guilty to two offences under the Pesticides Act and was fined $10,000 plus a victim fine surcharge of $2,500, and was given 90 days to pay the fine.
