Overview

 

 

Municipalities have Anti-Pesticide Nazis operating to enforce PESTICIDE BANS.

 

In Richmond, British Columbia, eagle-eyed Anti-Pesticide Nazis conduct BLITZKRIEGS on the streets, and hand out COMPLIANCE INSTRUCTIONS and HORRIFIC FINES to residents and Professional Lawn Care businesses.

 

Because of PESTICIDE BANS, the owners, employees, and families dependent on professional lawn care businesses have faced terror, despair and destitution.

 

PESTICIDE BANS result in CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE caused not only by HORRIFIC FINES, but also by BUSINESS FAILURES, GARBAGE DUMP GREEN SPACES, STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT COSTS, and even ILLNESS and DEATH.

Anti-Pesticide Nazis in

Richmond, British Columbia

 

 

 

 

Beware !

 

 

Your municipality may have Anti-Pesticide Nazis operating soon.

 

Richmond, British Columbia, with a population of almost 190,000, is generally recognized as that part of « Metro Vancouver » that contains the airport and the 2010 Olympic Oval facility.

 

It may soon be better known for a negative than those two positives !

 

In Richmond, by-law officers ( a.k.a. anti-pesticide Nazis ) are on the lookout for lawn law-breakers and guerilla gardeners USING ILLEGAL PESTICIDES to spruce up their gardens and grass.

 

Weekend yard patrols are scheduled throughout the summer, according to a report presented to a Richmond City Council Committee on July 3rd, 2012.

 

 

 

The target ?

 

 

Home-owners and landscapers spraying their lawn with products like Killex or Weed 'N' Feed  —  products BANNED under Richmond’s needless, senseless and malicious prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape.

 

 

 

Blitzkrieg

 

 

According to the report, eagle-eyed by-law officers conducted a BLITZKRIEG on the streets on Saturday, May 26th, 2012, and handed out « compliance instructions » to 27 residents and six landscaping firms, and fines were issued.

 

The fines are $100 dollars for the first offence, $500 dollars for the second, and $1,000 dollars for the third.

 

Richmond’s ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION applies to residential and city property, but excludes industries like farms, golf courses, and indoor extermination that use the very same ingredients as professional lawn care companies, as well as individual homeowners.

 

Although the use of pest control products is BANNED for so-called cosmetic reasons in Richmond, local retailers are still permitted to sell the chemicals.

Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association

 

 

Furthermore, a recent poll conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) con-firmed that the vast majority of residents in British Columbia are opposed to the prohibition of conventional pest control products, and they actually favor the continued use of these products around their homes and in public green spaces.

Carnage

PESTICIDE BANS have inflicted carnage in jurisdictions such as Halifax Regional Municipality, and the Provinces of Québec and Ontario.
