LETTER TO THE EDITOR ― MEDIA RELEASE
RESPONSE TO GIDEON FORMAN
THE EDMONTON JOURNAL
Gideon Forman is WRONG on so many levels.
Albertans need to know that Forman DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT.
A recent POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) showed that the VAST MAJORITY of residents are OPPOSED to the PROHIBITION of conventional pest control products, and they actually FAVOUR the continued use of these products around their homes and in public green spaces.
Furthermore, Forman will NOT REVEAL that, because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, Ontario green spaces are now OVER-RUN WITH WEEDS, INFESTED WITH INSECTS, and DISMALLY DESTROYED ― they look like GARBAGE DUMPS.
Do Albertans want to live in GARBAGE DUMPS TOO ?!?!
Forman’s citing of Canadian Cancer Society is a MISTAKE.
Canadian Cancer Society is NOT a health authority … it is a MERE FUND-RAISING Organization with NO science or research expertise.
Forman’s story about DRINKING WATER is also a MISTAKE.
Pest control products used in the Urban Landscape DO NOT enter our lakes and rivers through surface run-off and storm sewers … Forman’s ALLEGATION is FALSE, MISLEADING, and CONTRADICTS OVER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF RESEARCH.
A measured approach towards Gideon Forman’s ALLEGATIONS is to understand that he is PAID to operate in this fashion.
Anti-Pesticide Activists like Forman HAVE NEVER conducted a serious scientific study on pest control products … evidently because they are NOT COMPETENT OR MOTIVATED to do so.
Forman COULD NOT EVEN BE BOTHERED to have used the EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASE that is available from both Environmental Protection Agency and Health Canada.
He is not only SCIENTIFICALLY IGNORANT, but also LAZY and OBTUSE.
