Pesticides Are BAD – British Columbia Ban – 2012 01 19

 

JANUARY 19th, 2012
LETTER TO THE EDITOR  ―  MEDIA RELEASE
RESPONSE TO LES LEYNE
TIMES COLONIST
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA

PESTICIDES ARE « BAD »  [ ?!?! ]

According to Anti-Pesticide Activist Les Leyne  …

«  At first glance, it’s a no-brainer.  Pesticides are bad.  »  [ ?!?! ]

Ostensibly, Leyne wants the Government of British Columbia to IMPLEMENT a NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

How did Leyne arrive at the conclusion that products used in Professional Lawn Care somehow are « bad » ?!?!

Was the his ASSESSMENT based upon his vast scientific knowledge of pest control products ?!?!

NO ! 

Did Leyne ASSESS these products after spending time and money carefully studying their effects on health and environment ?!?!

NO ! 

Are Anti-Pesticide Activists like Leyne COMPETENT to give ANY advice concerning pest control products ?!?!

NO ! 

In order to allow SOUND SCIENCE to be effectively practiced, it would be preferable that activists like Leyne leave the interpretation of scientific research about pest control products to those people who ARE competent to do it  ―  Health Canada.

Conventional pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE since they have been scrutinized and approved by the HUNDREDS of expert scientists at Health Canada ! 

Overall, when they are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

 

PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR PROHIBITION  [ ?!?! ]

According to Anti-Pesticide Activist Les Leyne  …

«  The tide of public input is running strongly in favour of banning cosmetic pesticides in British Columbia.  »  [ ?!?! ]

This is FALSE.

Leyne is DECEIVING the public into believing the tide of public opinion is somehow strongly in favour of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in British Columbia.

According to a POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) in 2011  …

●   The VAST MAJORITY of residents are OPPOSED to the PROHIBITION of conventional pest control products

●   The VAST MAJORITY of residents FAVOUR the continued use of pest control products around their homes and in public green spaces

●   There is a MISPERCEPTION that most residents want the PROHIBITION of pest control products in the Urban Landscape

●   84 PER CENT of residents WANT INSECT CONTROL on their lawns if products are applied by a Professional Lawn Care company

●   70 PER CENT of residents WANT WEED CONTROL on their lawns if products are applied by a Professional Lawn Care company

●   Only an INFINITELY SMALL number of residents say « no » to the use of pest control products

THE CONSEQUENCES OF PROHIBITION

According to Anti-Pesticide Activist Les Leyne, the Premier of British Columbia has effectively promised Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, regardless of what any committee recommends.

If ( or when ) British Columbia IMPOSES NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION, there will be NO RECOURSE but LITIGATION against Anti-Pesticide Activists and Government Officials.

Anti-Pesticide Activists and Government Officials are advised that all names, statements, activities, and affiliations have been ARCHIVED for eventual CRIMINAL CHARGES. 

The Government of British Columbia may wish to consider providing an EXCEPTION STATUS to ALL CERTIFIED APPLICATORS, including those in the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

EXCEPTION STATUSES have been adopted in jurisdictions like Kamloops and Salmon Arm, where Government Officials have left pest control products in the hands of professionally-trained applicators.
