    City of Ottawa will spend ONE BILLION DOLLARS because the Province of Ontario ARBITRARILY IMPOSED PROHIBITION against pest control products that could have been used in the early stages of the EMERALD ASH BORER INVASION.  Can MUNICIPALITIES afford the HARDSHIP AND COST of this #@!!% PROHIBITION NONSENSE ?!?!   When it comes to Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, Municipal Officials can learn a lot from the experience of those jurisdictions that have SUFFERED THE HARDSHIP AND COST AN FAILURE OF THIS #@!!% NONSENSE !   And there is little debate about the fact that ARBITRARY PROHIBITIONS convert communities into SHABBIER AND DANGEROUS PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.   PESTICIDE-FREE means DEAD TREES and WEED-INFESTED PLAYING SURFACES.  EMERALD ASH BORER, a wood-boring insect that is HIGHLY DESTRUCTIVE to Ash Trees, is an example where Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION led to municipalities being forced to spend STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT AMOUNTS OF MONEY AND RESOURCES.  TreeAzin was the ONLY COMMERCIAL TREATMENT available in jurisdictions where Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION has been ARBITRARILY IMPOSED.  TreeAzin was a so-called Green Alternative Pesticide that supposedly replaces conventional pest control products.  And TreeAzin provides MARGINAL CONTROL AT BEST.  Now that Ottawa is bringing in Confidor, a PROHIBITED PRODUCT, it is admitting that if TreeAzin is THE ONLY OPTION, it would be better to DO NOTHING rather than use TreeAzin.  TreeAzin DOES NOT WORK !  It is IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTROL EMERALD ASH BORER without conventional pest control products.  In jurisdictions where Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION has been IMPOSED, Municipal Employees should simply be equipped with CHAIN SAWS.  If municipalities truly want to save their Urban Forests, then they should have their LOCAL PROHIBITION RESCINDED.   Across North America, Municipal Officials are THINKING TWICE ABOUT PROHIBITION by looking at the experience of those jurisdictions that have suffered the HARDSHIP AND STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT COSTS OF THIS #@!!% NONSENSE !×1   In fact, THERE ARE REAL TRENDS AGAINST PROHIBITION.  The following jurisdictions STOPPED or RESCINDED or LIMITED or OPPOSED Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, or granted professional lawn care businesses with an EXCEPTION STATUS  …  Alberta ( Province ), Altona (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 ), Ogunquit ( Maine ), 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 ).   THE TRENDS AGAINST PROHIBITION CONTINUE.  NO ONE CAN AFFORD THIS #@!!% NONSENSE OF ALLOWING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TREES TO DIE !  WILLIAM H.
