Alberta Environment has accused a Westlock company and its owner of violating regulations for applying pesticides.

Western Air Spray Inc. and Bobby Fred (Bob) Hnatko, 40, are charged with commencing an activity without holding an “aerial” class pesticide applicator certificate or being supervised by someone with a certificate, according to a department news release Friday.

They’re also charged with providing false or misleading information, and providing pesticide-application services without having a valid pesticide service registration.

The charges were laid in connection with events that allegedly happened between June 23 and Sept. 1, 2016, including aerial application of a pesticide near the village of Donnelly, about 430 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.

The next provincial court appearance in the case is set for Sept. 6 in Falher.
