Overview

 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists use EMOTIONAL ARGUMENT with NO DATA TO BACK UP ANY ASSERTION against pest control products.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists also promote the THEORY that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS RESPONSIBLE USE of pest control products.

 

They also object to using pest control products to have a pretty yard  …  but what’s so wrong with that ?

 

Policy-makers need to be clear that PESTICIDE BANS HAVE TO BE BASED ON SOUND SCIENTIFIC CONCLUSION.

 

Scientific evidence for blanket PESTICIDE BANS is SCARCE.

 

What we CAN’T DO, and SHOULD NOT DO, is to push our legislators into KNEE-JERK REACTIONS on a « just in case » basis.

 

When science confirms that A PRETTY YARD IS DANGEROUS, then it will be time to act.

 

 

 

Science Gets Last Word On Pesticide Bans

 

 

June 13th, 2012

Editorial

The Daily News

Nanaimo, British Columbia

 

 

More than ever, policy-makers need to be clear that banning this or that HAS TO BE BASED ON SOUND SCIENTIFIC CONCLUSION.

 

A blanket ban on cosmetic pesticides has to follow from strict scientific findings, but the problem is that SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE FOR SUCH A BLANKET BAN IS SCARCE.

 

In British Columbia, the New Democratic Party had a Private Member’s Bill in the legislature calling for just such a ban  …  even though THE SCIENCE IS INCONCLUSIVE on the harm from such products collectively.

 

It’s TOO EASY TO TAKE LEGITIMATE CONCERNS about certain toxins that have been abused in the past and linked with health problems and then spin an issue into an emotional one that provokes the populace, removing it from the hands of those with the best knowledge in that area.

 

There are any number of areas where PEOPLE ARE DRIVEN MORE BY EMOTION THAN FACTS in calls for bans  ―  smart meters, cell-phone towers and Wi-Fi in schools  ―  they qualify as just such issues that people are passionate about in the face of a lack of solid scientific conclusions.

 

Even the use of cell-phones is considered by some to be a risk to health.

 

Opposition to the seal hunt, a solid economic part of East Coast life for many years, is also similarly DRIVEN BY SENTIMENT when we know that seal populations are increasing.

 

And that’s not to say that there are no real threats out there.

 

It’s quite possible that among cosmetic pesticides there may be some that cause harm and should be taken off the shelves.

 

What we CAN’T DO, and SHOULD NOT DO, is to push our legislators into KNEE-JERK REACTIONS on a « just in case » basis.  [ a.k.a. The Precautionary Principle. ]

 

[  The Precautionary Principle was intended for use where science DOES NOT EXIST.  The Precautionary Principle is MIS-USED TO SERVE THE AMBITIONS of Environmental and Anti-Pesticide Activists.  With the Precautionary Principle, activists DO NOT HAVE TO PRESENT ANY EVIDENCE  …  they just have to ALLEGE SOMETHING IS SOMEHOW HARMFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT.  The ABSOLUTIST INTERPRETATION of the Precautionary Principle is used by activists TO JUSTIFY ANY KIND OF REGULATORY INTERVENTION OR BAN.  ]

Were that the case, the progress of technology would in the past decades have slowed to a trickle.

 

Leonard Krog, the Member of the Legislative assembly from Nanaimo, is a perfect example of this kind of logic in supporting the New Democratic Party’s position for the ban.

 

[  New Democratic Party functions as the POLITICAL SHIELD for Anti-Pesticide Organizations like Canadian Cancer Society.  ]

 

According to Krog  ―

 

Let’s put it this way  …  you have scientists say it’s not a big issue, then you have the Canadian Cancer Society and other groups saying something else.

 

Personally, I'll go with the Canadian Cancer Society. You're introducing a deleterious substance into the environment, and to what purpose? To make something look pretty.

 

[  Canadian Cancer Society is a FUND-RAISING, PROFIT-SEEKING, and LOBBYING organization, and NOT a science, research, or health organization.  It is presently UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CHARITY FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY.  It is listed among CANADA’S PROMINENT ANTI-PESTICIDE & ENVIRONMENTAL-TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS.  ]

Krog basically says that the guy who’s using Roundup is giving his neighbour cancer.

 

That’s a PRETTY EMOTIONAL ARGUMENT and ABSENT from Krog's reasoning is ANY DATA TO BACK UP SUCH AN ASSERTION.

 

There is no doubt certain products are linked to cancer.

 

And A LOT OF PRODUCTS ARE NOT LINKED TO CANCER.

 

Cancer has been around for a very long time, even predating the industrial revolution, and we don’t have to go very far to see how terrible this particular illness is and why groups like the Canadian Cancer Society are concerned about its spread.

 

But we have to ask if they are using a sledge hammer to crack a nut here.

Advocating for such broad legislation may not be as effective as a tight focus on those products that contain known carcinogens and specific bans on such individual products AS PROVED BY SOLID SCIENTIFIC DATA.

 

The claim that such toxins build up in the environment even from small applications is not to be dismissed, but even there, evidence remains UNCLEAR as to what extent environmental toxins are linked to current cancer rates.

 

That theory claims THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS RESPONSIBLE USE.

 

We beg to differ. These products have guidelines that need to be followed and we all need to be careful using them.

 

Krog may object to using such products to have a pretty yard  …  but what’s so wrong with that ?

 

When science confirms that A PRETTY YARD IS DANGEROUS, then it will be time to act.

 

 

 

Anti-Pesticide Terrorism NEVER Ends in British Columbia

 

 

PESTICIDE BANS are DESTROYING the Professional Lawn Care Industry in the Province of British Columbia.

 

Professional Lawn Care companies have been EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED and STAGNATING because of the THREAT and IMPLEMENTATION of the PROHIBITION against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

As a direct result of MUNICIPAL PESTICIDE BANS, Professional Lawn Care companies have LOST OVER 40 PER CENT OF THEIR CUSTOMERS.

 

British Columbia is known for its natural beauty, as well as its RADICAL AND SUBVERSIVE LUNATIC Anti-Pesticide Organizations.

 

Beginning in 2009, when municipalities in British Columbia started to implement PROHIBITION  —  BUSINESS GROWTH STAGNATED.

 

Since 2010, Professional Lawn Care companies have had to REDUCE STAFFING as a DIRECT RESULT of MUNICIPAL ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITIONS.

 

Professional Lawn Care companies have had to basically put ANY MAJOR INVESTMENT INTO THEIR BUSINESSES ON HOLD because of the continued THREAT of PROHIBITION.

 

PROHIBITION takes away all the gains made by Professional Lawn Care businesses in the past ten years, and MAKES IT DIFFICULT, IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE, TO RECOVER.

 

In jurisdictions where PESTICIDE BANS have been IMPOSED, Professional Lawn Care companies have NO REAL GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES to use on a commercial basis.

Professional Lawn Care customers DEPEND upon conventional pest control products to control damaging pests such as weeds and insects.

 

Unfortunately, THERE ARE NO GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES THAT WORK  ―  they are INEFFECTIVE  ―  they are STUNNINGLY HIGH IN COST  ―  you have to use them two, three, four times the recommended rate and frequency to get ANY results out of them.

 

Customers are telling Professional Lawn Care businesses that  …  «  If you can’t get rid of my weeds legally, I’ll do it myself.  »

 

Professional Lawn Care companies expect that, in 2012, they WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE MORE BUSINESS DUE TO PROHIBITION.

 

Professional Lawn Care companies have also been EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED and STAGNATING because of ALLEGATIONS Anti-Pesticide Organizations about the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products.

These ALLEGATIONS are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to alarm and enrage the public and enhance the CASH-FLOW and PROFIT of Anti-Pesticide Organizations.

 

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 PROHIBITION against the use of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

A 2011 POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) CONFIRMED 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.

STRIKE BACK Against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists

 

 

Everyone in the Green Space Industry  ―  no matter where they live  ―  must meet with their Member of the Legislative Assembly ( MLA ), preferably not from New Democratic Party.

 

In order to meet and inform the MLA, you must donate the maximum amount to the party, which is 1,100 dollars in British Columbia.

 

The cost of this donation is insignificant when compared to the catastrophic business losses inflicted by anti-pesticide prohibition.

 

Any business owner in the Green Space Industry who does not bother to meet with the local MLA is a pitiful fool and an idiot, and does not deserve a career, or a business, or any success.

 

COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN.

 

Anti-Pesticide Terrorists are NOT CREDIBLE SOURCES OF INFORMATION upon which political decisions are made  ―  they LIE and LIE and LIE.

 

There is NO RECOURSE but OFFICIAL COMPLAINTS as well as LITIGATION against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists.

 

They DO NOT DESERVE ANY DONATIONS OR SUPPORT.

 

They DO NOT DESERVE ANY GOVERNMENT GRANTS.

 

Nor do they deserve TAX-EXEMPT STATUSES.

 

They DO deserve to FACE THE SPOTLIGHT OF SCRUTINY and THE TERROR OF THE COURTS !

 

Anti-Pesticide Terrorists in organizations like Canadian Cancer Society are presently UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CHARITY FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY.

 

The Government of Canada DOES NOT want its society to continue living in the 9|11 Era of Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Profit-Hungry Terrorism !

 

And neither should anyone in the Green Space Industry.

 

All names, statements, activities, and affiliations have been ARCHIVED for anyone wishing to lodge an OFFICIAL COMPLAINT or lay CRIMINAL CHARGES against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists.

 

On The Pesticide Truths Web-Site, NORAHG manages a VAST ARCHIVE of REPORTS, MEDIA REFERENCES, AUDIO CLIPS, and VIDEOS on ALL Anti-Pesticide Terrorists.

 

We know who they are, and where they are hiding, and what they have said and done.

 

When CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY ARE LAID, legal experts say that the NORAHG ARCHIVE is sufficient to lead to a SUCCESSFUL PROSECUTION against Anti-Pesticide Terrorists !

 

Business owners in the Green Space Industry should talk to their lawyers, members of the legislative assembly, and local media outlets.

 

Thanks to The Pesticide Truths Web-Site, they have all the DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE that they need.

 

LET THESE TERRORISTS FACE THE SPOTLIGHT OF SCRUTINY and THE TERROR OF THE COURTS !

 

Anti-Pesticide Terrorists are GOVERNMENT-FINANCED with TAX-FREE MONEY  ―  they must not be allowed this money to defend themselves in court.

 

Demand a REVOCATION of their organizations’ REGISTERED CHARITY TAX-EXEMPT STATUS !

 

SUE THE BASTERDS’ BRAINS OUT !
