Kamloops Council Meeting    June 12th, 2012

 

 

On June 12th, 2012, during a City Council Meeting in Kamloops, British Columbia, observers could not believe the comments uttered by PAID-FOR-PROFIT LOBBYIST JERILYNN MAKI from Canadian Cancer Society.

 

Maki’s JUNK SCIENCE PRESENTATION was BOTH SHORT ON FACTS AND REPLETE WITH MISINFORMATION AND THREATS AGAINST LEGITIMATE AND TAX-PAYING BUSINESSES operating in British Columbia.

 

Observers were IN SHOCK and could not believe what they were hearing.

 

Maki gave Government Officials the FALSE AND FRAUDULENT IMPRESSION that children and adults are being exposed to cancer-causing agents whenever a pest control product is used. 

 

According to Maki, Canadian Cancer Society is not only SEEKING TO IMPOSE PROHIBITION AGAINST ALL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS USED IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT 

 

  Canadian Cancer Society is also SEEKING TO IMPOSE PROHIBITION AGAINST ALL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS USED AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY as well.

 

Now that Canadian Cancer Society HAS ALMOST COMPLETED ITS NATION-WIDE DESTRUCTION of the Professional Lawn Care Industry 

 

  AGRICULTURE IS NEXT !

 

Canadian Cancer Society has already SQUANDERED AND MISAPPROPRIATED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in an effort to PROHIBIT products that are HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC, and CAUSE NO HARM.

 

Canadian Cancer Society is spending LESS on RESEARCH, and MORE on issues like SUBVERSIVE ANTI-PESTICIDE CONSPIRACIES.

 

In 2012, the investigative television program Marketplace analyzed the Canadian Cancer Society’s financial reports dating back for over a decade, and saw that money being spent on research was declining dramatically    from 40.3 per cent in 2000 to under 22 per cent in 2011.

 

Cancer-Lunatics like Maki ALARM AND DECEIVE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS by blurting out HOLLOW and DESPICABLY-ALARMIST expressions like « cancer » and « serious illness » and « reproductive problems » and « neurological diseases » and « CHILDREN AT RISK » ! 

 

Cancer-Lunatics like Maki give Government Officials the FALSE AND FRAUDULENT IMPRESSION that CHILDREN, and also adults, are somehow being exposed to cancer-causing agents whenever a pest control product is used. 

 

These DESPICABLE Cancer-Lunatics USE CHILDREN AS WEAPONS OF COERCION AND ULTIMATE ENVIRONMENTAL TERROR in order to convince Government Officials of the necessity of PROHIBITION.

 

During her June 12th, 2012, presentation to Kamloops Council, Maki DEMANDED PROHIBITION UNDER THE PRETEXT OF SOMEHOW PROTECTING CHILDREN.  ( See later segment. )

Jerilynn Maki    Exploiting Children

 

 

The anti-pesticide groups often highlight CHILDREN as their main concern, and it is certainly NOT GROUNDS for dispute that special precautions should always be taken when it comes to children.

 

According to Ms Maki 

 

What we are particularly CONCERNED ABOUT ARE CHILDREN because of their developing immune systems, and more permeable skin, as well as their behaviours, playing in the grass, putting things in their mouth, and they are on the ground.

 

But it is also important that we look even more closely at this issue.

Dr. Gail Charnley    Children Less Sensitive

 

 

Dr. Gail Charnley is a scientist who is internationally-recognized for her expertise in Environmental Health Risk Assessment and in both Risk Management Science and Policy. 

 

According to Dr.  Charnley 

 

Young children are more sensitive than adults to the toxic effects of some chemicals, such as lead and organic mercury.

 

At the same time, CHILDREN ARE LESS SENSITIVE THAN ADULTS TO OTHER CHEMICALS.

 

For example, unlike the situation in adults, liver toxicity and death from acetaminophen poisoning is EXTREMELY RARE IN CHILDREN.

 

REDUCED CHEMICAL TOXICITY IN CHILDREN is generally due to their MORE RAPID RATES OF METABOLISM AND ELIMINATION, resulting in lower body burdens of drugs or chemicals than adults for the same exposures.

Health Canada    Extra Safety Factors

 

 

[  Pest control products are regulated by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ), which requires thorough scientific reviews and safety assessments to ensure they meet strict health and environmental standards and are shown to have value.  Pest control products are one of the most stringently regulated products in Canada.  ]

 

The PMRA has stated the following ( in this case, referring specifically to 2,4-D, but is their general policy about pesticide registration for home and garden situations )   

 

The unique physiology, behaviours and play habits, such as [ CHILDREN’S ] lower body weights and hand-to-mouth contact while playing, were also taken into consideration in the exposure assessment.

 

EXTRA SAFETY FACTORS were applied to the no effect level identified in animal toxicity studies to protect population groups, such as CHILDREN and pregnant women, that may be more susceptible to the potential effects of pesticides.

Dr. Chris F. Wilkinson, a respected American Toxicologist, wrote the following 

 

THERE IS LITTLE, IF ANY, EVIDENCE that under current regulatory procedures, CHILDREN are any more « at risk » than adults to the potential adverse effects of pesticides.

Dr. Miles Weinberger    No Evidence Of Childhood Cancer

 

 

Dr. Miles Weinberger, a Pediatrician at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and both a Professor of Pediatrics and the Director of the Iowa State Cystic Fibrosis Newborn Screening Program, has stated the following   

 

While both naturally occurring and man-made substances can cause cancer in high concentrations and under certain exposure conditions, there is NO EVIDENCE that such substances are contributing to CHILDHOOD CANCER in the amounts generally found in the environment.

Background Information From An Independent Perspective

 

Canadian Cancer Society is more knowledgeable than Health Canada ?!?!?

 

NO ! 

 

Canadian Cancer Society has conveniently considered the hundreds of qualified scientists of Health Canada’s respected Pest Management Regulatory Agency to be incompetent and/or incapable of arriving at correct scientific findings concerning conventional pest control products.

 

In order to allow SOUND SCIENCE to be effectively practiced, it would be preferable leave the interpretation of scientific research about pest control products to those people who ARE competent to do it    Health Canada, and NOT Canadian Cancer Society.

 

Health Canada, and NOT Canadian Cancer Society, has the ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE and CREDIBILITY on pest control products.

 

NO pest control product can be sold or used until Health Canada’s scientists have evaluated ALL the existing evidence to determine whether the product meets stringent health and safety requirements. 

 

Conventional pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE since they have been scrutinized and approved by the HUNDREDS of expert scientists at Health Canada ! 

 

Overall, when they are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

 

Ironically, Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-sites STATE REPEATEDLY that scientific research DOES NOT PROVIDE A CONCLUSIVE LINK between pest control products and cancer.

 

Even some of Canadian Cancer Society’s HIGHEST-RANKING LOBBYISTS state that the connection between cancer and pesticides is NOT CONCLUSIVE.

INDISPUTABLE AND CONCLUSIVE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH shows that, as reported through Health Canada’s VAST TOXICOLOGY DATABASE, NO HARM WILL OCCUR when pest control products are used according to label directions.

 

Why is Canadian Cancer Society WASTING EVERYBODY'S TIME on the issue of pest control products ?

 

Canadian Cancer Society is a FUND-RAISING, PROFIT-SEEKING, and LOBBYING organization, and NOT a science, research, or health organization.

 

Health Canada, and NOT Canadian Cancer Society, has THE ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE on the subject of pest control products.

 

Canadian Cancer Society is RIDICULOUSLY IMPLYING that its NON-EXPERT ASSESSMENT is somehow being withheld from Health Canada and EVERY other regulatory agency in the world.

John J. Holland’s Biography

 

 

John J. Holland is Communications Director for Integrated Environmental Plant Management Association of Western Canada ( IEPMA ).   

 

He is the nation's MOST ELOQUENT and INTELLIGENT WRITER on the subject of public policy and pest control products.  

 

In Letters To The Editor, Holland has EFFECTIVELY and FREQUENTLY SPOKEN OUT AGAINST Anti-Pesticide Activists. 

 

The Integrated Environmental Plant Management Association of Western Canada ( IEPMA ), in conjunction with its membership, has been VERY decisive regarding the CONSPIRACY to PROHIBIT pest control products in British Columbia.

 

After all, conventional pest control products are HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC, and CAUSE NO HARM.

 

Integrated Environmental Plant Management Association represents the PROFESSIONAL CERTIFIED PEST CONTROL PRODUCT APPLICATORS in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

 

Its main focus is the annual educational conference held at the end of January in Kelowna, British Columbia.

 

The Integrated Environmental Plant Management Association has correctly recognized that this is a BEACH-HEAD in the FIGHT FOR VICTORY against the CONSPIRACY to PROHIBIT pest control products in British Columbia.

 

Here are Mr. Holland’s career highlights and accomplishments

John J. Holland’s Wisdom

 

 

Here are some examples of Holland’s wisdom 

 

 

Agencies of your own Government    namely Health Canada and the PMRA   [ Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada ]    have stated on numerous occasions that 2,4-D POSES NO UNACCEPTABLE RISKS TO THE PUBLIC.

 

Although I have never used my degree in the profession for which I studied, I found that the training I received in the methods of research was invaluable in enabling me to discern the facts of the real science behind the use of pest control products.  Not being a scientist, I have always been guided by the work of those who are the actual experts.

 

As you may be aware, there are also numerous MISLEADING    or UN-SCIENTIFIC    studies with such a negative point of view, such as the Ontario College of Family Physicians’ [ OCFP ] Pesticide Literature Review ( 2004 ).  This review has been used to support almost every proposed pesticide ban, from the Municipal to the Provincial ( e.g., Ontario ) level.  The information used by those like the OCFP has been CHERRY-PICKED by the physicians    NOT SCIENTISTS    writing the report, and the report has been DISCOUNTED by many scientists and government experts in this and other countries.  Studies used are generally all epidemiological, and links to cancer and other diseases have been WEAK and NOT CONSISTENT from study to study.  Toxicological studies DO NOT CONFIRM the epidemiological findings.  By definition, epidemiology CANNOT FIND CAUSES    they merely suggest correlations, and the basic tenet of epidemiology is that correlation does not mean causation.  Studies must also be consistently reproducible before a finding can be found meaningful.  At any rate, the OCFP study ignored or down-played other important epidemiological studies that did not conform to its premise of the dangers of pesticides ( again, check with the PMRA ).

 

CAPE and Forman also seem to believe, with NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF, that all synthetic pesticides cause cancer.

 

Despite popular belief, Canadian Cancer Society, which has taken such a large and activist role against pesticides, is NOT A SCIENTIFIC ORGANIZATION.  Canadian Cancer Society is a volunteer advocacy and fund-raising association, with NOT A SINGLE SCIENTIST on staff with pesticide expertise.

 

From your statements, I would have to assume that you must consider the 350 qualified scientists of the PMRA incompetent and/or incapable of arriving at correct scientific findings.

 

It must first be noted that there is NO SUCH THING as « full scientific certainty ».  ONE CANNOT PROVE A NEGATIVE.  It is IMPOSSIBLE to prove scientifically that pest control products    or any substance, including water­    could NEVER harm anything or anyone under ANY circumstances.  There is also NO PROOF of « environmental degradation » caused by what are erroneously termed « cosmetic » pest control products.

 

Municipal and provincial governments and even health-related professional organizations have been taking advice on pesticides from those who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE IT.  These governments also ignore those who have THE ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE, such as Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ).

 

Products containing 2,4-D DO NOT POSE UNACCEPTABLE RISKS to human health or the environment.  They also have value for lawn and turf, agriculture, forestry and industrial uses when used according to the label directions proposed in previous consultation documents.

 

Proper weed control on turf HELPS PREVENT SLIPPING INJURIES by eliminating broad-leaved weeds.   [ … ]   the Precautionary Principle dictates that, with the choice between treating and not treating, the decision for proper weed control must be made.  Therefore, turf pest control products SHOULD NOT BE PROHIBITED. 

 

There are NO efficacious or cost-effective alternatives to the conventional products being banned.  Due to their POOR PERFORMANCE, the « alternative » products left have to be applied more often, with more applicator visits, dramatically increasing an applicator’s environmental foot-print    there is no lack of certainty about this.

 

There is SUBSTANTIAL AND UNDENIABLE PROOF for both « serious » and « irreversible » harm to employees and families of applicator companies ( and to the companies themselves ).  In Quebec and Ontario, many companies have been driven out of business    there is no lack of any certainty about this.  In spite of the claims of activists to the contrary, THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS, and they and their families are suffering the consequences, health and otherwise    there is no lack of certainty about this. 

 

While there have been numerous studies published on the effects of pesticides on human health, the VAST MAJORITY have shown that there are NO DISCERNABLE HEALTH PROBLEMS.

 

2,4-D has been registered in our country since 1946, and is the third most-used herbicide in Canada.  If there were health problems related to 2,4-D’s application, it would seem obvious that concrete proof    after over 60 years of use    would have surfaced by now, particularly when you realize that there have been thousands of studies, and numerous re-evaluations by both Health Canada and the U.S. EPA [ Environmental Protection Agency ].  This herbicide is probably THE MOST STUDIED PESTICIDE IN HISTORY.

 

 

 

 

 

The Wisdom of Holland (3)

 

 

 

 

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry.

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED by PROHIBITIONS pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT of somehow « saving » the environment.

 

NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON PROFIT NON PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.

 

NORAHG is dedicated to reporting the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.

 

NORAHG pledges to deliver reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.
