This is insanity. Ontario Bee Keepers Association and their Lawyers are trying to tell the public that the IUCN Task Force on Systemic Pesticides and their international scientists are credible scientists regarding Neonicotinoids. Soon they will have Gideon Forman presenting as a Toxicologist. Ontario is the hub of Anti-Science and they actually sense and feel their way through tough decision making processes. No logic needed
IUCN motto is Act Beyond Trust!
They use experts at Post Normal Science
Specialists in New Risks within Environmental Science
Managing Uncertainty in Science for Sustainability
DO we have to tell you who these guys are? Do you even know who is on the TFSP committees?
Disease and Pest Control in the Pesticide-free Organic Rice Farming
Mitsukuni Inaba (Japanese Non-governmental Rice Research Institute)
Organic Hot Water Treatments – No resistance to this control option
Neonicotinoid use caused Bug/Insect Outbreak in Organic Farming. No Joke (minute 9:51)
Siskinds clarifies misinformation about class action suit.
The lawyers representing beekeepers in the class action suit against Bayer and Syngenta have asked us to circulate the following letter which has gone to the Financial Post in response to an article posted on October 28, 2014. The article in question was written by a representative of an American 'think tank' with a history of trying to discredit groups working on environmental issues.
Although the OBA is not actively involved in the law suit, we felt is was in our community's best interest to receive accurate information upon which to base a personal decision related to the class action suit. OBA has a FAQ and other information on its webpage: www.ontariobee.com/classaction.
For more information please visit Siskinds' website at http:www.classaction.ca/actions/environmental/current-actions/neonicotinoid to contact them with any questions you might have.
THE LETTER FROM SUSKINDS:
On October 28, 2014, the Financial Post published a special report on the class action brought by Siskinds on behalf of beekeepers against agricultural technology companies, Bayer and Syngenta, for the manufacturer of neonicotinoids.
Unfortunately, the article is riddled with false and misleading statements and meant to deter beekeepers from participating in the class action, which is exactly what Bayer and Syngenta would like to see happen. Primarily, the article is meant to scare beekeepers from joining the class action by alleging that the beekeepers will be responsible for costs. This is simply not true. Siskinds LLP can confirm that there are no costs whatsoever to any beekeeper who decides to participate in the claim. In other words, there is NO financial risk to any beekeeper who joins the class action.
Siskinds LLP has responded, and will continue to respond, to every question and request for information received about the class action – both positive and negative. Siskinds LLP is always available to answer inquiries about the class action process.
Here is a quick question : Can you provide any Document Productions, Disclosure information. So we can laugh. The world is waiting.
