Call For More Comprehensive
Prohibition Against Pesticides
September 6th, 2016
Province Of Newfoundland
Selected And Adapted Excerpts
The Coalition for Alternative to Pesticides ― Newfoundland and Labrador ( CAP-NL ) is renewing a call for a MORE COMPREHENSIVE PROHIBITION on the sale and use of TOXIC [ ?!?! ] PESTICIDES in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― NO ONE WANTS TO LIVE IN CAP-NL’S #@!!% DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED URBAN LANDSCAPES THAT LOOK LIKE GARBAGE DUMPS !
CAP-NL is listed as AN ANTI-PESTICIDE & ENVIRONMENTAL-TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. http://wp.me/P1jq40-7NX It conspires to impose reckless and arbitrary prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape. Prohibition is demanded by #@!!% CAP-Lunatics under the false pretext that safe and effective alternatives already exist to replace conventional pest control products. CAP-NL is NOT a science, NOT a research, NOT a health, and NOT a physicians’ organization. It is CERTAINLY NOT SCIENCE-BASED !
Observers OBJECTS to CAP-NL’S choice of life-style, which, in this case, is a clear preference to live in an environment that looks like a garbage dump ( a.k.a. naturalized lawns ), just like prohibition jurisdictions like the province of Ontario. Observers OBJECT to the imposition of CAP-NL’S choice on the majority of the community that DOES NOT want to live in this manner.
For example, the reckless and arbitrary imposition of Ontario’s pesticide-hating prohibition was not in the best interest of health and environment. And, sadly, Ontario’s prohibition left a trail of economic carnage and garbage dump green spaces. There is no dispute that Ontario’s prohibition was 100 per cent politically-based and 0 per cent science-based. It is a recognized fact that prohibition is unnecessary since pest control products are Health-Canada-approved, federally-legal, scientifically-safe, practically-non-toxic, and cause no harm. No one wants to live in #@!!% dangerous and pest-infested urban landscapes that look like garbage dumps ! http://wp.me/P1jq40-44g http://wp.me/p1jq40-7C4 Prohibitions have never made our green spaces look so #@!!% ugly ! http://wp.me/P1jq40-4z3
Prohibitions result in catastrophic carnage caused by business failures, garbage dump green spaces, stunningly exorbitant costs, horrific fines, and even illness and death. Prohibitions have destroyed public and residential green spaces by turning them into garbage dumps. Here is a summary of garbage dump green spaces inflicted by #@!!% prohibition carnage … • children at high risk of tripping and becoming seriously hurt • dandelions the dominant ground cover • dead mature street trees • hazardous slipping conditions in sports turf • invasive noxious weeds like Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed • lawns decimated by insects like white grubs • lawns in entire neighborhoods ruined by pests • parks infested with weeds • rose plantations dying and removed. This is the #@!!% prohibition carnage that can be expected in any community that recklessly and arbitrarily imposed prohibition.
Reports About Catastrophic Carnage Caused By Prohibition ―
This follows a recent MOCK-REPORT on pesticide regulation in Canada.
In a prepared release, CAP-NL said the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE ) in a recently released MOCK-REPORT, « Cosmetic Pesticides ― Provincial Policies & Municipal Bylaws : Lessons Learned & Best Practices », August 30th, 2016, reviewed and critiqued federal, provincial/territorial and municipal cosmetic [ ?!?! ] pesticide regulations and bylaws in Canada.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― CAPE IS A FAILURE ! ― CAPE’s MOCK-REPORT was filled with FRAUDULENT MIS-INFORMATION and FALSE-ALLEGATIONS about pest control products, was released by the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE ). CAPE is a golf-hating, anti-pesticide, & environmental-terrorist organization. CAPE is NOT a coalition of physicians. CAPE is NOT a doctors’ group. CAPE is nothing more than an enviro-fanatics’ club that anyone can join by simply paying for a membership. Moreover, the VAST MAJORITY of CAPE-fanatics are NOT even doctors and nurses, and are certainly NOT COMPETENT to make ANY assessments regarding environmental issues and pest control products. CAPE is a mere FUND-RAISING, LOBBYING, and PROFIT-SEEKING organization. CAPE is NOT a coalition, NOT a science, NOT a research, NOT a health, and NOT a physicians’ organization. It is CERTAINLY NOT SCIENCE-BASED !
The term COSMETIC PESTICIDES refers to pest control products used for NON-ESSENTIAL PURPOSES to improve the appearance of landscaping elements such as lawns, trees, gardens, shrubs and other ornamental plants.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS NON-ESSENTIAL AND COSMETIC ! ― The Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada DOES NOT classify pest control products as « non-essential » or « cosmetic ». Pest control products are regulated by 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.
CAPE’s MOCK-REPORT stated significant progress has been made in reducing cosmetic pesticide use and sales across Canada; however, Newfoundland and Labrador, which only PROHIBITS a relatively small number of pesticides, WAS GIVEN A D-GRADE. [ Big Deal ! ]
The report stated RESIDENTS IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR HAVE VERY LIMITED PROTECTION FROM PESTICIDES. [ ?!?! ]
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR ARE PROTECTED WITH PESTICIDES THAT ARE SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE ! ― Health Canada, EPA, and other science-based national regulatory agencies have clearly demonstrated that pest control products used in the Urban Landscape are LESS TOXIC THAN Aspirin, baking soda, caffeine, cannabis, nicotine, table salt, and Tylenol. Additionally, these products are NO MORE TOXIC THAN ethanol ( an edible beverage constituent in beer, wine, and other intoxicating beverages ), mouthwash ( Listerine ), and Vitamin C. These pest control products are scientifically-safe, practically non-toxic, will cause NO harm, will NOT cause cancer, and will NOT cause irreversible damage if consumed orally. The probable lethal dose for a person ingesting the concentrated form of many of these products is ONE LITRE, the volume of an entire milk carton. By comparison, drinking SIX LITRES of water, a fluid that is seemingly harmless, can lead to water poisoning or dilutional hyponatremia, which is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain functions. In essence, water is only FIVE TIMES SAFER than many of these products.
The risk assessment of conventional pest control products indicates that they are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, and, when used properly, will NOT cause harm to children, people, animals, or the environment.
Reports Concerning Conventional Pest Control Products ―
CAP-NL agrees with the findings in the MOCK-REPORT, and is making EIGHT FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATIONS to the Provincial Environment Minister and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The FIRST CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION is that in line with best practices in other provinces create a more comprehensive WHITE LIST OF PESTICIDES [ i.e. Green Alternative Pesticides ] that IDENTIFIES ACCEPTABLE AND SAFE PESTICIDES to be used for cosmetic purposes.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― CAP-NL IS NOT COMPETENT TO ASSESS PESTICIDES ― Ostensibly, CAP-NL wants to IMPOSE AN ARBITRARY PROHIBITION against ALL pest control products, except those that it IDENTIFIES AS ACCEPTABLE AND SAFE. How will CAP-NL arrive at the conclusion that products are ACCEPTABLE AND SAFE ?!?! Will the ASSESSMENT by CAP-NL be based upon its vast scientific knowledge of pest control products ?!?! [ No ! ] Did CAP-NL ASSESS these products after spending time and money carefully studying their effects on health and environment ?!?! [ No ! ] Is CAP-NL even COMPETENT to give ANY advice concerning these issues ?!?! [ No ! ]
SECOND CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION, ensure an IMPROVED PROHIBITION on TOXIC [ ?!?! ] PESTICIDES is sufficiently broad and covers all landscape elements and not just lawns.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― PESTICIDES ARE CLASSIFIED AS PRACTICALLY NON-TOXIC ― Three-way turf herbicide products, like Killex and Par III, ( containing the ingredients 2,4-D, mecoprop, and dicamba ) are used for the selective weed control in turf. Indisputable and conclusive risk assessments show that, as reported through Health Canada’s vast toxicology database, NO harm will occur when these pest control products are used properly. EVEN IN THEIR CONCENTRATED FORMS ( i.e. the product in its form prior to mixing with water ), the risk assessment for Killex and Par III is PRACTICALLY NON-TOXIC. In other words, these broad-leaved weed control products are NO MORE TOXIC than household items like TABLE SALT and even ASPIRIN. In fact, they are not only LESS TOXIC than TABLE SALT and ASPIRIN, but also baking soda, caffeine, cannabis, ethanol ( beer, wine, and other intoxicating beverages ), nicotine, Tylenol, and Vitamin C. By comparison, the risk assessment for Fiesta Herbicide, a so-called Green Alternative Pesticide, is also PRACTICALLY NON-TOXIC.
THIRD CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION, combine improved pesticide regulations with better enforcement and public education.
FOURTH CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION, create new regulations that address pesticides used in INDOOR environments.
FIFTH CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION, NARROW THE SCOPE OF EXCEPTIONS from the PROHIBITION and tightly define the EXCEPTIONS.
SIXTH CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION, support cooperation between the federal, provincial, and municipal governments to improve protection against TOXIC [ ?!?! ] PESTICIDES exposures.
SEVENTH CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION, REMOVE THE EXCEPTION FOR GOLF COURSES in the regulations, and employ a PERMITTING AND REGISTRY SYSTEM to track and enforce permitted exceptions.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― THE GOLF INDUSTRY DESPERATELY NEEDS PESTICIDES ! ― CAPE is strongly demanding the revocation of the golf industry exception status. [ ?!?! ] Without conventional pest control products, Golf Facilities become PEST-INFESTED AND UNPLAYABLE GARBAGE DUMPS. It is IMPOSSIBLE for Golf Superintendents to keep their facilities playable and beautiful by using so-called green alternative pesticides and practices.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― THE ONTARIO GOLF INDUSTRY ALREADY HAS A REGISTRY SYSTEM WHICH IS A DISMAL FAILURE ! ― The Golf Industry is being subjected to a HACKING-ATTACK CAMPAIGN by golf-hating fanatics at Prevent Cancer Now who are downloading sensitive IPM Data ! The IPM Council Of Canada refuses to protect Golf Superintendents & their facilities from this ELEVATED AND ONGOING THREAT OF HARM AND DESTRUCTION ! On June 18th, 2016, and July 1st, 2016, Prevent Cancer Now ( a.k.a. Canadian Cancer Society ) sent messages by e-mail ORDERING THE HACKING-ATTACK against Golf Superintendents and their facilities. See links below. The MASTER-MIND of this HACKING-ATTACK CAMPAIGN is Meg Sears, a revenge-obsessed fanatical enviro-leader who HOLDS THE GOLF INDUSTRY FALSELY ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE SAD DEATH OF HER SON as a result of his supposed exposure to pest control products used by golf facilities near her home. Sears and other golf-hating fanatics have begun DOWNLOADING ( i.e. HACKING ) sensitive IPM Data from the UNSECURED WEB-SITE of the IPM Council of Canada, www.ipmcouncilcanada.org/ This web-site contains thousands of detailed reports on the use of pest control products by hundreds of Golf Superintendents desperately rely upon these products in order to operate their facilities. Sears’ objective is to RECKLESSLY EVALUATE the IPM Data in a manner that will humiliate, damage, and destroy businesses that operate in the Golf Industry. THE DESTRUCTION OF GOLF FACILITIES WILL BE SEARS’ REVENGE FOR THE DEATH OF HER SON. Incredibly, after being warned on a dozen separate occasions, the IPM Council of Canada persists in doing nothing to protect the sensitive and potentially destructive IPM Data that is currently being pilfered by Sears and Prevent Cancer Now. IPM Council does not give a sh*t about this elevated threat of harm and destruction ! Golf Superintendents are expected to go to the link below for the information they need to COMPLAIN TO ALL BOARD MEMBERS of the IPM Council.
WARNING To Golf Superintendents ! ― Complaints To IPM Council Board Members ! ―
Reports On Fanatical Messages Ordering The Hacking Attack ! ―
THE IPM COUNCIL MUST IMMEDIATELY SHUT-DOWN ITS WEB-SITE ― NOW ! www.ipmcouncilcanada.org/
EIGHTH CAP-NL FANATICAL-RECOMMENDATION, initiate annual random audits for retailers of pesticides.
CAPE IS A FAILURE ! ― On September 2nd, 2016, a MOCK-REPORT filled with FRAUDULENT MIS-INFORMATION and FALSE-ALLEGATIONS about pest control products, was released by the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE ). CAPE is a golf-hating, anti-pesticide, & environmental-terrorist organization. CAPE is NOT a coalition of physicians. CAPE is NOT a doctors’ group. CAPE is nothing more than an enviro-fanatics’ club that anyone can join by simply paying for a membership. Moreover, the VAST MAJORITY of CAPE-fanatics are NOT even doctors and nurses, and are certainly NOT COMPETENT to make ANY assessments regarding environmental issues and pest control products. CAPE is a mere FUND-RAISING, LOBBYING, and PROFIT-SEEKING organization. CAPE is NOT a coalition, NOT a science, NOT a research, NOT a health, and NOT a physicians’ organization. It is CERTAINLY NOT SCIENCE-BASED ! Moreover, CAPE-fanatics have huge vested interests in subversively interfering on issues that they know nothing about, such as coal and pesticides. With its so-called outreach campaigns ( i.e. campaigns of coal & pesticide-hating and enviro-lunatic subversion ), CAPE is INTERFERING with partisan politics, and, consequently, is IN VIOLATION OF TAXATION LAWS. http://tinyurl.com/mtjkts7 If organizations like CAPE want to INTERFERE IN PARTISAN POLITICS, then their charity tax-exempt statuses must be REVOKED. The public has no choice but to complain about CAPE by contacting business, fund-raising, government, and taxation agencies ! http://wp.me/P1jq40-1PE CAPE deserves the spotlight of scrutiny and the terror of Canada Revenue Agency. CAPE is fanatical, gloating, treacherous, and repugnant. http://wp.me/P1jq40-3s4
THE GOLF INDUSTRY DESPERATELY NEEDS PESTICIDES ! ― CAPE is strongly demanding the revocation of the golf industry exception status. [ ?!?! ] Without conventional pest control products, Golf Facilities become PEST-INFESTED AND UNPLAYABLE GARBAGE DUMPS. It is IMPOSSIBLE for Golf Superintendents to keep their facilities playable and beautiful by using so-called green alternative pesticides and practices. Alternative methods of pest control [ i.e. green alternatives, organic pesticide-free maintenance, or IPM-cultural-practices ] are INEFFECTIVE, and CANNOT BE RELIED UPON to properly maintain Golf Facilities. The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association ( CGSA ), and other trade associations, must CEASE focusing on the adoption of INEFFECTIVE alternative methods of pest control as the solution to its public affairs problems. CGSA has WRONGLY-ALLEGED that the best way to minimize inputs is through the use of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ), despite the fact that, overall, IPM-Cultural-Practices DO NOT control pests of established turf and ornamentals. Unfortunately, CGSA has NO credibility in public affairs, and is NOT FIT to lobby against the FANATICAL-PROHIBITION being proposed by Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE ).
MYTHS ABOUT PESTICIDES ! ― Concerns about the use of pest control products stem from CAPE’s non-expert non-scientific pesticide-hating fanatics. Any prohibition against pest control products is NOT justified because strict regulations based on scientific research already protect our children, our health, and our environment. SAYING YES TO PESTICIDES WILL MAKE LAWNS SAFE FOR CHILDREN AND WILL PROTECT THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT !
CHILDREN ARE SAFE WITH PESTICIDES ! ― CAPE falsely-alleges that prohibition is somehow protecting families and their children from cosmetic pesticides. [ ?!?! ] Pest control products represent NO threat to children since they are scientifically-safe and will cause NO harm. There is NO need for screeching-fanatics to recklessly conspire to impose arbitrary prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape. Leading scientific experts, like Dr Katherine von Stackelberg, say they would NOT hesitate to let their children play on a lawn where lawn care products have been used as long as the products were applied according to label directions. http://tinyurl.com/mw2fu7u According to another leading expert, Dr James S Bus, there is NO evidence that common lawn herbicides like 2,4-D cause cancer or any health problems in children. Dr Bus has also stated that there is NO regulatory agency in the world that regards pest control products like 2,4-D as a threat to children’s health. http://wp.me/p1jq40-7W0 According to yet another leading expert, Mr William Jordan, Deputy Director, Office of Pesticide Programs, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ), parents DO NOT need to worry as long as a pest control product is used correctly. The EPA has spent a lot of time looking at products like 2,4-D, and has concluded that it is safe for kids. http://tinyurl.com/pe6x3h9 Allegations by screeching-fanatics about the imaginary danger to children are totally false, and are untrue mis-representations merely designed to alarm and enrage the public. SAYING YES TO PESTICIDES WILL MAKE LAWNS SAFE FOR CHILDREN AND WILL PROTECT THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT !
COALITION FOR ALTERNATIVES TO PESTICIDES ( CAP-NL ), operating in Newfoundland & Labrador, is listed as an anti-pesticide & environmental-terrorist organization. http://wp.me/P1jq40-7NX It conspires to impose reckless and arbitrary prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape. Prohibition is demanded by #@!!% CAP-Lunatics under the false pretext that safe and effective alternatives already exist to replace conventional pest control products. These products are named in its so-called White List. This is FALSE !
GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES are ineffective, inferior, inadequate, high-risk, more toxic, stunningly expensive, and overwhelmingly condemned ! Green alternatives DO NOT WORK ! http://wp.me/P1jq40-24g Coalition For Alternatives To Pesticides ( CAP ) has wrongly assumed that alternatives to conventional pest control products are somehow safer and work as well as conventional products. [ WRONG ! ] By definition, alternatives are inferior, which is why they did not win the market-place originally. Alternative products are usually less tested as well, raising the prospect that they are not any safer or better than conventional products, and are, in fact, dismal failures. http://wp.me/p1jq40-5R8 It is impossible for home-owners or professionals to keep their properties beautiful and safe by using green alternatives. There are NO viable, NO efficacious, NO economical, and NO low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products. A well-maintained lawn and landscape can ONLY be achieved with conventional pest control products, which are safe, effective, economical, and low-risk. Green alternatives are bogus & dismal failures. Coalition For Alternatives To Pesticides ( CAP-NL ) is WRONG!
THE RISK ASSESSMENT OF CONVENTIONAL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS indicates that they are scientifically-safe, and, when used properly, will NOT cause harm to children, people, animals, or the environment.
