British Columbia Pesticide Ban – Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides – The End of the Current Anti-Pesticide Siege of Terrorism Against the Professional Lawn Care Industry – 2012 05 17

 

 

 

 

 

Overview

 

 

British Columbians DO NOT want their society to continue living in the 9|11 Era of Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Profit-Hungry Terrorism !

 

On May 17th, 2012, British Columbia’s Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides announced that it WILL NOT RECOMMEND A BAN AGAINST PESTICIDES.

 

This VICTORY signals the END OF THE CURRENT SIEGE OF ANTI-PESTICIDE TERRORISM Against the Professional Lawn Care Industry in British Columbia.

 

In jurisdictions outside of British Columbia, Anti-Pesticide Terrorists have already INFLICTED HORRENDOUS and CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE for businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry, in the form of IMMENSE LOSSES OF REVENUES, BUSINESS FAILURES, BANKRUPTCY, and UNEMPLOYMENT, and even HORRIFIC FINES.

 

Because of Anti-Pesticide Terrorists, the owners, employees, and families dependent on Professional Lawn Care businesses have faced TERROR, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION.

 

Pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE.

 

Not surprisingly, the BC Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides AGREED  ―  and deserves CONGRATULATION.

 

It is COMMON KNOWLEDGE that there are NO pest control products that are known or probable carcinogens.

 

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and NO HARM WILL OCCUR when they are used according to label directions.

 

So-called Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations, MASQUERADING as health groups, are expressing MOCK-DISAPPOINTMENT.

 

Anti-Pesticide Organizations like Canadian Cancer Society have already SQUANDERED between 2,500,000 AND 5,000,000 DOLLARS on SUBVERSIVE Anti-Pesticide CONSPIRACIES that are NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, MALICIOUS, and UNNECESSARY.

 

This VICTORY against the TERRORISTS does NOT signal that their ACTS OF SUBVERSION will end.

 

Terror NEVER Ends !

 

These lunatics, financed with our tax-dollars and public donations, will continue their ACTS OF TERRORISM  ―  this time, back with the municipalities.

 

Furthermore, several of these organizations are presently UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CHARITY FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY.

 

Moreover, in the next election, New Democratic Party may garner a majority of the votes and form the government that will IMPOSE PROHIBITION.

 

New Democratic Party is the POLITICAL SHIELD for Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations.

 

The Professional Lawn Care Industry must take advantage of this VICTORY, and not fall into complacency.

 

It is now time for the Professional Lawn Care Industry to select a municipality that has IMPOSED an Anti-Pesticide By-Law, and SUE ITS BRAINS OUT  ―  this will serve as an example to ALL Anti-Pesticide Terrorists.

 

The lunatics must be HOUNDED, no matter where they are  ―  specifically David Suzuki, whose two-year contract with public television must not be renewed beyond 2014  ―  Suzuki’s reign MUST BE ENDED.

 

Suzuki, and ALL Anti-Pesticide Terrorists, must MAKE AMENDS FOR THEIR ACTS OF TERRORISM  ―  Barbara Kaminsky.  Gideon Forman.  Kathryn Seely.  Mae Burrows.  Selina Robinson.  And others.

on Pesticide Use

 

for Cosmetic Reasons

The Committee that has been examining the use of pesticides has tabled it’s report, but fails to call for an all-out ban on sale and use of pesticides for cosmetic reasons in residential settings. 

 

The final decision was NOT UNANIMOUS.

 

According to Bill Bennett, Chair of the Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides  ―

 

The majority of the committee DOES NOT THINK THE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, at this time, WARRANTS AN OUTRIGHT BAN.

 

We are not prepared to say to home-owners that purchasing 2,4-D is prohibited, under all circumstances, or that they cannot hire a qualified person to apply it to their lawns.

 

Deputy Anti-Pesticide Chair of the Committee, Rob Fleming, says the minority of committee  had a different view.

 

The minority of the committee came to the conclusion that there is enough evidence to support the public and the Union of BC.    [  ?!?!?!  ]

 

Instead of an all-out ban, the Committee has put forth 17 recommendations aimed at promoting the safe use of pesticides.

 

The recommendations are  ―

 

1.   BAN THE SALE OF commercial-class PESTICIDES as soon as possible, EXCEPT FOR USE BY CERTIFIED APPLICATORS.  Begin immediate consultations with the AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY on how best to prohibit the sale of commercial-class pesticides to anyone but a certified applicator.

 

2.   Amend Integrated Pest Management Act ( IPMA ) regulation(s) regarding how pesticides can be sold to require vendors to restrict consumer access to most domestic-class pesticides so customers must interact with a certified dispenser before purchasing a pesticide.

 

3.   Require a certified dispenser to ensure that there is a strong justification for pesticide use before a pesticide is sold, based on Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) principles, including the following  ―

 

a.   The best way to control pests and weeds;

 

b.   The right way to use a pesticide so that it does the job;

 

c.   The legal uses of the pesticide; and

 

d.   The importance of reading and following the directions on the label.

 

4.   Require a vendor to keep a record of each sale of a domestic-class pesticide, in line with the requirement for a vendor of a commercial-class pesticide; and that government use the records of sales information to track domestic-class pesticide sales.

 

5.   Provide vendors with a reasonable phase-in implementation period.

 

6.   Increase inspections of retail outlets to ensure that pesticide products are accessible only by interaction with certified dispensers and that the consumer is receiving appropriate information and instruction.

 

7.   Increase penalties for those vendors not meeting the responsibility that accompanies their right to sell the product.

 

8.   Improve public education on the use of domestic-class products, with a focus on the right product at the right time, in accordance with IPM principles and to the extent possible, in ways that are consistent with BC organic standards and organic management practices.

 

9.   Employ IPM specialist(s) to work with retailers and other stakeholders to educate the public on ways to eliminate pesticide use and increase alternative pest management methods.  The specialist could be responsible for developing and/or coordinating and approving educational information developed through partnerships.

 

10.   Make public education a combined responsibility of manufacturers, retailers and government with manufacturers, retailers and applicator businesses paying most of the cost; and provide resources to support non-commercial organizations dedicated to public education.  Components of the outreach or promotion could be contracted out, similar in nature to the Recycling Council of BC, with an IPM specialist approving educational information and delivery methods.

 

11.   Develop a separate list of preferred products that meet a set of criteria for sale/use on lawns, gardens and turf to assist certified dispensers and consumers when selecting pesticides.

 

12.   Develop, in conjunction with retailers and manufacturers, a one-day course for consumers.  Graduates would be issued a card allowing a straightforward purchase of registered domestic-class pesticides.

 

13.   ESTABLISH A WEB-SITE for the householder using pesticides in and around private homes and gardens that explains the principles of IPM, alternative methods of treatment, and methods of lawn care that reduce the growth of weeds.

 

14.   Amend the IPM Regulation regarding how pesticides can be used by landscapers for lawn and landscape pest management to require IPM accreditation for landscaping licensees.  A third party accreditation body, like Plant Health BC, could be required to audit its members for compliance with record keeping requirements of IPM Regulation and for good IPM practices.

 

15.   Enhance retailer training by directing the retail industry to set up, at its own cost, a more comprehensive training and certification regime so that sales people in the retail setting are qualified to ensure consumer choices are in line with IPM principles; and develop a training course for pesticide applicators as a pre-requisite to test writing, with the course content to include the application of IPM principles in residential settings.

 

16.   Ask the GOLF INDUSTRY to develop a province-wide certification process, or to modify an existing one, that will ensure a high standard of pesticide use by all golf courses in BC, including the use of IPM principles.

 

17.   Expand and enhance the provincial unwanted pesticide management program to facilitate the return of unwanted domestic-, commercial- or restricted-class pesticide products.

 

The all-party committee was appointed in June 2011 to conduct consultations regarding the unnecessary use of pesticides in the province.

 

The inquiry included briefings from federal and provincial regulators and stakeholder presentations.

 

The committee also conducted an e-consultation and received almost 8,700 submissions, setting a new record for public participation in a committee inquiry.

BC Committee

 

REJECTS

 

Pesticide Ban

 

 

 

May 17th, 2012

 

BC Local News

 

Selected and adapted excerpts

 

 

 

The BC Liberal majority on a legislative committee has recommended AGAINST A PROVINCE-WIDE BAN on cosmetic pesticide use, after a year of hearing from farmers, foresters, environmental organizations, and interested citizens.

 

Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett chaired the committee whose four BC Liberal members out-voted three NDP members calling for a province-wide ban on common household herbicides, insecticides and fungicides used for visual effect.

 

New Democratic Party ( NDP ) operates as the POLITICIAL SHIELD for Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations.

 

The majority recommended that retail sales should be treated similar to tobacco, KEPT OUT OF SIGHT AND AVAILABLE ONLY BY REQUEST from someone with training in how to use the chemicals.

 

Bennett said THE MOST COMPELLING TESTIMONY CAME FROM A REPRESENTATIVE OF HEALTH CANADA, which approves such products for use across the country.

 

The committee was told that BC was the FIRST province to ask Health Canada before considering such a ban, and that imposing one would be a POLITICAL rather than a public health choice, Bennett said.

 

Bennett noted that only five per cent of pesticide application is by household users, using products DILUTED 100 TIMES OR MORE BELOW THE LEVEL THAT SHOWS EFFECTS IN THE MOST SENSITIVE ANIMAL SPECIES.

 

The widespread belief that common lawn and garden products cause harm when used as directed is based on « chemophobia » and a LACK OF SCIENTIFIC LITERACY, Bennett said.

 

According to Bill Bennett, Chair of the Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides  ―

 

The majority of the committee concluded that we could not justify second-guessing the 350 scientists who work at Health Canada.

 

NDP Anti-Pesticide Environment Critic Rob Fleming noted that Premier Christy Clark formed the committee after publicly agreeing with NDP leader Adrian Dix that the cosmetic pesticide ban should be enacted.

 

A province-wide ban would equalize a patchwork of municipal restrictions around the province and stop retail sales the public, he said.    [  Big Deal !  ]

 

The committee’s recommendations go against up to 80 per cent of public opinion [  ?!?!?!  ], and would leave BC « dead last » in provincial regulations, Fleming said.    [  ?!?!?!  ]

 

Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Rob Fleming is WRONG !

 

A recent POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) showed that the VAST MAJORITY of residents in British Columbia 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.

 

Additionally, according to another recent Ontario poll, where PROHIBITION has been IMPOSED since 2009, MORE THAN HALF of Ontario residents believe that the provincial government DID NOT DO THE RIGHT THING by implementing Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION.

 

Ontario residents WOULD RATHER HAVE THE BAN SCRAPPED OR MODIFIED.

 

Bennett said he discussed the recommendations with Clark before she left on a trade mission to Asia, and she offered no objections.

 

Cabinet could still overrule the committee and impose a ban, which he acknowledged would be much more politically popular.

Cosmetic Pesticide Ban

Vancouver Sun

 

Selected and adapted excerpts

 

 

 

A legislative committee has REJECTED AN OUTRIGHT BAN on cosmetic pesticides in BC, saying the SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE DOES NOT SUFFICIENTLY SUPPORT SUCH A MOVE.

 

In a report released Thursday morning, the committee made 17 recommendations, including restricting the sale and use of commercial pesticides and enhancing enforcement of existing regulations.

 

But it STOPPED SHORT OF AN OUTRIGHT BAN.

 

According to Bill Bennett, Kootenay East Liberal MLA and Chair of the Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides  ―

 

We made our decision BASED ON OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCIENCE.

 

We are not prepared to tell home-owners that they cannot purchase federally-approved domestic-class pesticides or hire a qualified contractor to apply these federally-approved weed and bug control products on their lawn.

 

New Democrat Anti-Pesticide Environment Critic Rob Fleming MOCK-CRITICIZED the decision.

 

New Democratic Party ( NDP ) operates as the POLITICIAL SHIELD for Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations.

 

According to Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Rob Fleming  ―

 

New Democrats are profoundly disappointed in the outcome of this process.    [  Big Deal !  ]

DON’T BAN

 

Cosmetic Pesticides,

 

BC MLAs Recommend

 

 

 

May 17th, 2012

 

CBC News

 

Selected and adapted excerpts

 

 

 

An all-party committee is recommending NO PROVINCE-WIDE BAN on cosmetic pesticide use in British Columbia.

 

There is not enough evidence to justify a province-wide ban on the cosmetic use of pesticides but the regulations restricting their use should be tightened, according to a special committee of BC Members of the Legislative Assembly ( MLAs ).

 

According to Bill Bennett, Chair of the Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides  ―

 

The majority of the committee DOES NOT THINK THE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, at this time, WARRANTS AN OUTRIGHT BAN.

 

We are not prepared to say to home-owners that purchasing 2,4-D is prohibited, under all circumstances, or that they cannot hire a qualified person to apply it to their lawns.

 

The Special committee on Cosmetic Pesticides was made up of five Liberal Members of the Legislative Assembly ( MLAs ) and three NDP MLAs.

 

New Democratic Party ( NDP ) operates as the POLITICIAL SHIELD for Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations.

 

Bennett said CANCER has hit his family hard, and if he thought a pesticide ban would save lives, he would have recommended one.

 

And even though a majority of public responses to the committee supported a ban, « the evidence just doesn't support the banning of cosmetic pesticide in BC ».

 

In fact, Anti-Pesticide Activists, such as those in Canadian Cancer Society, DELUGED the government with THOUSANDS, YES THOUSANDS, of submissions with COMMENTS that can only be described as LIES and MIS-INFORMATION. 

 

The issue here was CREDIBILITY of the source of information, since the VAST MAJORITY of the COMMENTS were ORCHESTRATED, through a coast-to-coast CAMPAIGN, using NON-EXPERT VOLUNTEERS with Canadian Cancer Society. 

 

The report by the Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides made 17 recommendations including  ―

 

●   Restricting access to and use of commercial-class pesticides by uncertified users.

 

●   Tightening up the rules for the sale of pesticides.

 

●   Improving public education by using integrated pest management ( IPM ) specialists to develop educational resources, and creating a website to inform home-owners about IPM.

 

●   Expanding the provincial program for safe disposal of unwanted pesticides.

 

But the Anti-Pesticide Deputy Chair of the committee, NDP Environment Critic Rob Fleming, said his party was not happy with the recommendation not to ban the use of cosmetic pesticides in BC  ―

 

New Democrats are profoundly disappointed in the outcome of this process.

 

Instead of making good on the premier’s repeated promise to ban cosmetic pesticides, the Liberals have brought in minimal regulatory changes.    [  Blah ! Blah ! Blah !  ]

 

The Premier and opposition leader supported a ban.

 

Fleming was referring to a statement by Premier Christy Clark last year that she supported a province-wide ban.

 

« I support banning the cosmetic use of pesticides », said Clark after NDP Opposition Leader Adrian Dix introduced a private member’s bill last May to ban the sale, transfer or use of pesticides for cosmetic purposes that never became law.

 

The special committee was set up a month later to consult residents about a possible ban.

 

Several Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations, like Canadian Cancer Society, have also been COERCING, INTIMIDATING and TERRORIZING Government Officials for a province-wide ban.

 

According to Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Rob Fleming  ―

 

We had an unprecedented level of public interest and participation for a legislative committee, reflecting a widespread consensus among the public and scientific community that the cosmetic use of pesticides pose an unnecessary health risk to children, pets and our water supply.    [  WRONG !  ]

 

There are viable non-synthetic alternatives that are already available and the associated health risks of cosmetic pesticides warrants government action to reduce everyday exposure to toxins that are potentially harmful and easily misused.    [  ?!?!?!  ]

 

It is IMPOSSIBLE for home-owners or professionals to keep their properties beautiful by using so-called Green Alternative Pesticides.

 

There are NO viable, efficacious, economical, or low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.

 

Green Alternative Pesticides ( a.k.a. Organic or Natural Pesticides ) are BOGUS and DISMAL FAILURES  ―  they DO NOT WORK and they are NOT INNOVATIVE products.

 

Overall, Green Alternative Pesticides are INEFFECTIVE, INADEQUATE, HIGH-RISK, MORE TOXIC, and STUNNINGLY EXPENSIVE !

 

In many cases, Green Alternative Pesticides are questionably HIGHER IN TOXICITY, and pose HIGHER ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS.

 

A well-maintained conventional lawn and landscape can ONLY BE ACHIEVED WITH CONVENTIONAL pest control products and fertilizers.

MOCK-

 

DISAPPOINTMENT

 

 

 

May 17th, 2012

 

CNW Media release

 

Selected and adapted excerpts

 

 

 

BC’s top Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations, MASQUERADING AS HEALTH GROUPS, are expressing MOCK-DISAPPOINTMENT after a BC legislative committee on cosmetic pesticides released a report today calling for WEAK RESTRICTIONS on lawn and garden pesticides.

 

According to Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Barbara Kaminsky, CEO, Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon  ―

 

If these recommendations become law, they will not protect all British Columbian children from being exposed to unnecessary chemicals and possible carcinogens.    [  WRONG !  ]

 

We waited years for the BC government to follow the lead of other provinces and BC municipalities, and this is the result ?    [  So What ?  ]

 

The report was slow in coming and is weak in content.    [  ?!?!?!  ]

 

It is disappointing overall.    [  Boo Hoo !  ]

 

The Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations  ―  which include Canadian Cancer Society, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE ), Lung Association, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Public Health Association of BC  ―  had requested strong legislation banning the sale and use of all pesticides for lawns, gardens and non-agricultural landscaping.

 

According to Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic and CAPE Fund-Raiser Gideon Forman  ―

 

Doctors are displeased that, given all we know about pesticides and illness, the committee would offer something so weak.    [  ?!?!?!  ]

 

We will continue to urge the BC government to implement strong province-wide cosmetic pesticide legislation, similar to Ontario’s.    [  Big Deal !  ]

 

CAPE is a FUND-RAISING and LOBBYING organization, and NOT a science, research, or physicians' organization.

 

The VAST MAJORITY of CAPE members ARE NOT EVEN PHYSICIANS.

 

In fact, CAPE represents an INFINITESIMALLY SMALL number of doctors.

 

CAPE merely represents LESS THAN 4 PER CENT of all doctors in Canada.

 

In fact, CAPE functions as a PUBLIC POLICY SHIELD for Green Party of Canada and Canadian Cancer Society.

 

There is NO broad public support for cosmetic pesticide legislation in BC.

 

According to BOGUS polling commissioned by Canadian Cancer Society in 2010, over 70 per cent of British Columbians somehow support provincial legislation to restrict pesticide use.    [  WRONG !  ]

 

In fact, a recent POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) showed that the VAST MAJORITY of residents in British Columbia 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.

 

Additionally, according to another recent Ontario poll, where PROHIBITION has been IMPOSED since 2009, MORE THAN HALF of Ontario residents believe that the provincial government DID NOT DO THE RIGHT THING by implementing Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION.

 

Ontario residents WOULD RATHER HAVE THE BAN SCRAPPED OR MODIFIED.

 

More than 35 BC municipalities have already adopted by-laws restricting the cosmetic use of pesticides, and delegates at the 2008 and 2009 Union of BC Municipalities Conventions voted in favour of resolutions calling on the BC government to ban the use and sale of cosmetic pesticides province-wide.    [  Big Deal !  ]

 

During the two public consultations that the BC government has conducted ( in 2010 and 2011 ), some 8,000 British Columbians responded to each consultation and the vast majority of respondents were in support of province-wide legislation.

 

Most recently, Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations succeeded in making pesticides an issue in the Port Moody-Coquitlam by-election.

 

According to Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic and CAPE Fund-Raiser Gideon Forman  ―

 

To say that a lot of people are afraid of chemicals because they don't understand the science is insulting to the majority of British Columbians in support of legislation and those who responded to the committee's consultation.    [  ?!?!?!  ]

 

Anti-Pesticide Lunatics like Forman ALLEGE that there is some kind of evidence supporting a link between pesticides and cancer incidence, reproductive problems, and neurological diseases.    [  WRONG !  ]

 

A definitive cause and effect relationship between cosmetic pesticide use and cancer is unlikely to be firmly established, according to Anti-Pesticide Lunatics.    [  WRONG !  ]

 

In fact, it is COMMON KNOWLEDGE that there are NO pest control products that are known or probable carcinogens.

 

It is a MYTH to believe that pest control products somehow cause cancer.

 

Environmental Protection Agency's ( EPA ) and Health Canada’s EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASE CLEARLY PROVE that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE ! 

 

Both EPA and Health Canada require each new pest control product to go through about TWO-HUNDRED SEPARATE TESTS to examine health and environmental impacts as well as value, and costing about 250 MILLION DOLLARS.

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Canadian Cancer Society, through its promotional literature, continues to insist there is a link between pest control products and cancer, despite the fact that its U.S. counterpart, American Cancer Society, DOES NOT SHARE THE SAME VIEWPOINT.

 

Even Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-site states that scientific research does NOT provide a conclusive link between pesticides and human cancer.

 

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and NO HARM WILL OCCUR when they are used according to label directions.

 

Nonetheless, Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Gideon Forman THINKS HE KNOWS BEST  ―

 

We've conducted polling and an awareness campaign and in response thousands of citizens contacted the BC government in support of a ban.    [  Big Deal !  ]

 

Predictably, Anti-Pesticide Activists, such as those in Canadian Cancer Society, DELUGED the government with THOUSANDS, YES THOUSANDS, of submissions with COMMENTS that can only be described as LIES and MIS-INFORMATION. 

 

The issue here is CREDIBILITY of the source of information, since the VAST MAJORITY of the COMMENTS were ORCHESTRATED, through a coast-to-coast CAMPAIGN, using NON-EXPERT VOLUNTEERS with Canadian Cancer Society.

Canadian Cancer Society is is expressing MOCK-DISAPPOINTMENT after a special legislative committee of BC MLAs FAILED TO RECOMMEND A PROVINCIAL BAN on the use of cosmetic pesticides for lawns and gardens.

 

According to Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Spokesman Kathryn Seely  ―

 

The Canadian Cancer Society is very concerned about the use of cosmetic or unnecessary pesticides on lawns and gardens.

 

We base this statement on the growing body of evidence that suggests there are links between substances used in pesticides and cancer.    [  WRONG !  ]

 

We know that children are particularly vulnerable to pesticides because their organs and bodies are growing and developing and they play close to the ground.    [  WRONG !  ]

 

The Canadian Cancer Society believes we don’t have to wait for scientific certainty before we prohibit the use of these unnecessary chemicals on lawns and gardens and places our children play.    [  ?!?!?!  ]

 

In other words, Seely and her terrorist organization have SQUAT !

 

It is COMMON KNOWLEDGE that there are NO pest control products that are known or probable carcinogens.

 

It is a MYTH to believe that pest control products somehow cause cancer.

 

Environmental Protection Agency's ( EPA ) and Health Canada’s EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASE CLEARLY PROVE that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE ! 

 

Both EPA and Health Canada require each new pest control product to go through about TWO-HUNDRED SEPARATE TESTS to examine health and environmental impacts as well as value, and costing about 250 MILLION DOLLARS.

 

There are THOUSANDS OF DEATHS per year from KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES such as cigarette smoke and alcohol. 

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Canadian Cancer Society, through its promotional literature, continues to insist there is a link between pest control products and cancer, despite the fact that its U.S. counterpart, American Cancer Society, DOES NOT SHARE THE SAME VIEWPOINT.

 

Even Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-site states that scientific research does NOT provide a conclusive link between pesticides and human cancer.

 

After a ten-month-long review, the legislative committee determined there is NOT ENOUGH SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE TO JUSTIFY A BAN on cosmetic pesticide use in BC

 

According to Bill Bennett, Chair of the Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides  ―

 

The majority of the committee DOES NOT THINK THE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, at this time, WARRANTS AN OUTRIGHT BAN.

 

We are not prepared to say to home-owners that purchasing 2,4-D is prohibited, under all circumstances, or that they cannot hire a qualified person to apply it to their lawns.

 

The all-party legislative committee  —  with a majority of Liberal Members of the Legislative Assembly ( MLAs )  —  was formed in June 2011 to look into the use of pesticides and the possibility of a ban.

 

In a report tabled today in the legislature, the committee made a series of recommendations on the sale and use of pesticides.

 

These included calls for a BAN ON COMMERCIAL-CLASS PESTICIDES FOR UNCERTIFIED USERS, tougher rules around the sale of pesticides, and efforts to educate the public and encourage use of alternatives to pesticides.

 

Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Kathryn Seely COERCED, INTIMIDATED, and TERRORIZED British Columbians with LIES and MIS-INFORMATION concerning pest control products.

 

Opposition New Democrat Anti-Pesticide Environment Critic Rob Fleming, the committee’s deputy chair, also said the outcome of pesticide review is disappointing.

 

New Democratic Party is among those CONSPIRING TO IMPOSE PROHIBITION, and operates as the POLITICAL SHIELD for Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organizations.
