Weeds win the day

Weed control is pretty much out of control in Belleville!!!

At budget meetings last week, city staff told Belleville city council that effective weed control was pretty well impossible without the use of chemicals.

Chemical weed control is illegal in Ontario.

Staff said every kind of legal weed control product on the market had been tried, and they were all ineffective.

Staff is worried that the turf in city parks and sportsfields is going to be seriously damaged over time.

    Belleville MUST RESCIND ITS PESTICIDE BAN, and ALLOW SAFE, EFFECTIVE, and ECONOMICAL pest control products to be used on public and private Green Spaces.  No one wants this #@!!% ban nonsense !  It is impossible for home-owners or professionals to keep their properties beautiful by using so-called green alternative pesticides and practices.  Without conventional pest control products, playing surfaces become thin and yellow, and over-run with weeds and infested with insects, resulting in the dismal destruction of safe turf playing surfaces and turning them into garbage dumps.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-44g   http://wp.me/P1jq40-4z3  Who wants to live in #@!!% pest-infested garbage dumps just because a small group of activists seek to impose needless pesticide bans ?!?!  Can municipalities and home-owners afford the hardship and cost of this #@!!% pesticide ban nonsense ?!?!   No !  Organic pesticide-free maintenance is promoted by enviro-vermin with unverifiable success stories !  It is a dismal failure !   http://wp.me/p1jq40-3yl   Green alternative pesticides, as well as organic fertilizers, are often owned and distributed by the very same enviro-vermin who conspire to impose anti-pesticide prohibition.  The question of anti-pesticide prohibition revolves less around health and environment concerns, and more around the sale of products and services that are sold at stunningly exorbitant costs. When it comes to pesticide bans, municipal officials are thinking twice about banning pesticides by looking at the experience of those jurisdictions that have suffered the hardship and stunningly exorbitant costs of this #@!!% nonsense !   http://wp.me/p1jq40-5×1   http://wp.me/P1jq40-43V   In fact, there are real trends against pesticide bans.  The following jurisdictions stopped or rescinded or limited or opposed anti-pesticide prohibition, or granted professional lawn care businesses with an exception status  …  Alberta ( Province ), Altona ( Manitoba ), Ashland ( Oregon ), Beaumont ( Alberta ), British Columbia ( Province ), Calgary ( Alberta ), Campbell River ( British Columbia ), Chicago ( Illinois ), Durango ( Colorado ), Edmonton ( Alberta ), Everett ( Washington ), Guelph ( Ontario ), Guelph-Eramosa ( Ontario ), Kamloops ( British Columbia ), Kelowna ( British Columbia ), Merritt ( British Columbia ), New Brunswick ( Province ), Newfoundland & Labrador ( Province ), Port Alberni ( British Columbia ), Portage La Prairie ( Manitoba ), Quebec ( Prohibition Invalidated When Lawsuit Defeated Ban ), Regina ( Saskatchewan ), Rossland ( British Columbia ), Salmon Arm ( British Columbia ), Scarborough ( Maine ), Saint John’s ( Newfoundland & Labrador ), Steinbach ( Manitoba ), Stuartburn ( Manitoba), Vernon ( British Columbia ), Winkler ( Manitoba ).   http://wp.me/P1jq40-1JO   The trends against pesticide bans continue.  No one can afford this #@!!% nonsense !  WILLIAM H.
