Cavers says he is going to put a motion before council to have all pesticides banned in the city of Kamloops by the end of the year.
I would like to see Mr. Cavers’ credentials, as he seems to know more than the scientists who test and approve these products for public use.
The federal government approves the use of pesticides for lawn care.
The committee appointed by the B.C. government approves the use of these products.
So, what gives this man the right to try and dictate to the citizens of Kamloops what they can and cannot do on their property ?
I pay good money for property taxes and feel that I should have some say on how I maintain my lawn and general appearance of my home.
I live in Rayleigh and have a professional company spray my lawn.
I feel that all people who are tired of listening to groups who oppose these products should take a stand and let City council know your feelings.
After all, we have rights too.
Here's hoping the rest of City council will make the right decision and turn down Mr. Cavers’ motion.
Fortunately, Cavers has NO SUPPORT within City Council, and NO SIGNIFICANT SUPPORT within the community.
Cavers has NO recognized training, education, or credentials in matters concerning pest control products.
PESTICIDE BANS result in CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE caused by BAN FAILURES, BUSINESS FAILURES, GARBAGE DUMP GREEN SPACES, STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT COSTS, HORRIFIC FINES, and even ILLNESS and DEATH.
Because of Caver's ARBITRARY PESTICIDE BAN, the owners, employees, and families dependent on Professional Lawn Care businesses would have faced TERROR, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION.
Cavers wanted to destroy their businesses, their assets, their customers, their homes, their lifestyles, their job security, their families, their children, their loved-ones, and their future.
Cavers would have HURLED them all into SQUALOR and DESPAIR, forcing them to BURN-IN-HELL in places like Vancouver's East-End.
Cavers is an Anti-Pesticide Rapist, of sorts.
He should be treated accordingly.
The electorate must tell him to Get Off Their grASS, and throw him out of office.
