According to The Province  a mother trying to kill bed bugs in her Vancouver apartment used an imported pesticide that fatally poisoned her infant and left her other children critically ill.

The mother used a pesticide to fumigate her apartment last Tuesday that she brought back from Pakistan during a recent trip, said her sister. The family brought the bottle of pesticides to the hospital when the children fell ill. Unfortunately, one of the children, died in hospital that afternoon and the other children were reported to be in critical condition.
