On March 6th, 2012, MacLean’s Magazine issued a report on the CARNAGE caused by the UNSCIENTIFIC PANIC against pest control products.
MacLean’s, the RESPECTED Canadian national weekly news magazine, stated, in one form or another, that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE.
MacLean’s Magazine has also stated that, essentially, any PROHIBITION against pest control products is NOT JUSTIFIED because STRICT REGULATIONS based on scientific research already PROTECT our health and our environment.
Every PROHIBITED pest control product has been CERTIFIED AS SAFE FOR RESIDENTIAL USE by the federal Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada.
Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITIONS represent a TRIUMPH OF SENTIMENT OVER SCIENCE.
Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITIONS are VALIDATED not on the basis of scientific evidence, but rather a VAGUE MOCK UNEASE about chemicals in general.
NOT ALL PROHIBITIONS make for a healthier environment.
Do PROHIBITIONS provide a net benefit to society ?
There are NUMEROUS UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES [ i.e. CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE ] to Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION.
There is little debate about the fact that ONTARIO LOOKS SHABBIER AND WEEDIER because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION [ i.e. Ontario looks like a GARBAGE DUMP ].
In ONTARIO, parks, sports fields, and home lawns have become WHOLLY INFESTED WITH DANDELIONS and a variety of other weeds, and there is NO practical way to remove them, other than hand-pulling.
In Highland Park, Illinois, Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION was a DISASTER ― WEEDS ACCOUNTED FOR OVER 60 PER CENT OF THE GROUND COVER, and sports fields were UNUSABLE ― Highland Park RESCINDED PROHIBITION.
When it comes to pest control products, provinces like Manitoba can learn a lot from the experience of those who have gone before ― if the goal is to reduce veriﬁable risks, promote a more natural environment, and encourage healthy activities, PROHIBITING pest control products SEEMS A STRANGE WAY TO GO ABOUT IT.
