Ten companies have been fined by Health Canada for applying insecticides that were WITHDRAWN from the market. 

 

The two products in question are chlorpyrifos and diazinon, two insecticides capable of controlling ants, spiders, and bed bugs    as well as insects that can damage lawns. 

 

Considered an unnecessary risk to health [  ?!?!  ], they were WITHDRAWN from residential use since 2003 and 2005. 

 

«  It is the old chemistry.  It is very effective, but the level of risk to the health, it is considered that this is not acceptable  », says Pierre-Olivier Duval, of the compliance program of Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency.

Companies Looking To Reduce Their Cost

 

 

The two products are dangerous poisons known to disrupt the nervous system in humans and animal species. 

 

They are especially harmful for young children, whose nervous system is in full development.  [  ?!?!  ] 

 

A team of inspectors were sent to investigate 10 companies that maintain home lawns in Mirabel, Saint Eustache and Saint Jerome, in particular. 

 

Very effective, these products are less expensive than those allowed in the residential sector, according to M Duval. 

 

They are attractive to companies looking to REDUCE THEIR COSTS and ensure good results, explains the expert. 

 

The maintenance of the lawns, « it is a highly competitive industry », he said. 

 

« Customers are demanding. »

Withdrawn Insecticides Are Not Rare Contraband

 

 

This is not an excuse to derogate from the rule, states Philippe Caissie, technical director of Weed Man lawn care. 

 

One of the franchisees of his company, Weed Man Laurentides-Lanaudière, had to pay $4,000 in fines to Health Canada. 

 

« This is not a common practice », says Mr Caissie. 

 

And « this is not something that has been done at a large scale », he insists. 

 

It remains that the chlorpyrifos and diazinon are NOT RARE CONTRABAND. 

 

Although WITHDRAWN from the residential market, they remain easy to access, since they are both allowed and commonly used in the AGRICULTURAL SECTOR.

Withdrawn Insecticides Can Still Be Used In Agriculture

 

 

Called upon to justify this two-tiered regulation for chlorpyrifos and diazinon, Mr Duval explains that, in AGRICULTURE, the rules are very strict. 

 

«  In agriculture, no one walks not on four legs, like a child might do on a lawn.  There is a re-entry period between the application and harvest, to protect health  », explains the expert from Health Canada. 

 

This does not, however, prevent the pesticides used in agriculture to contaminate the environment, and thus, have an indirect impact on human and animal health, according to environmentalists.  [  ?!?!  ] 

 

In March 2017, of the analyses carried out for Equiterre, the presence of the pesticide atrazine was found in the drinking water of Montreal.  [  Atrazine is NOT used in lawn care.  ]

 

Although authorized by Health Canada, this product is known to prevent the normal development of a fetus in pregnant women who are exposed to them. 

 

Achieving a manicured lawn without toxic chemicals is now perfectly possible, ensure the specialists in horticulture.  [  ?!?!  ]

 

« Pesticides should be used as a last resort and it is possible to have a beautiful lawn like that », says Melanie Langlais, of the Association Des Services En Horticulture Ornementale Du Quebec ( ASHOQ ). 

 

Langlais explained that with good soil aeration, by leaving the clippings after mowing, picking the weeds and reseeding the damaged areas, excellent results are obtained.  [  ?!?!  ]

 

«  A healthy lawn can withstand the presence of a number of pests without too many drawbacks.  So, please, be tolerant, help only when pests and diseases have really put the health of the lawn at risk.  »  [  ?!?!  ]

Bio-Pesticides

 

 

If the lawn is healthy, «  predators and parasites that attack the enemies of the plants will have time to put in the work without you having to intervene  », says the organization in its guide for ecological lawn care.  [  ?!?!  ]

 

But if the infestation of weeds or insects is really out of control, we find more and more of low-impact pesticides and BIO-PESTICIDES on the market.  [  Which DO NOT WORK !  ]

 

Unfortunately, they are still more expensive than their toxic competitors. says Langlais.  [  ?!?!  ]

 

She is, however, convinced that the growing demand for these products will drive prices down.  [  ?!?!  ]

 

«  There are more and more municipalities, including Montreal, which prohibit the use of pesticides, so people have no other choice than to adapt  », she said.

This section provides information on VIOLATIONS of the Pest Control Products Act and its Regulations that have resulted in warnings, penalties, and/or convictions. 

 

The Agriculture and Agri-Food Administrative Monetary Penalties ( AMPS ) Act provides a system of penalties and warnings for VIOLATIONS of several federal Acts including the Pest Control Products Act, which regulates pesticides. 

 

The AMPS Act allows Canadian pesticide regulatory officials to impose penalties without having to pursue formal prosecution. 

 

Health Canada is responsible for the regulation of pesticides in Canada under the Pest Control Products Act. 

 

Each pesticide proposed for use in Canada is evaluated to determine if it meets Health Canada’s standards for the protection of health and the environment, and whether the product is effective for its intended use. 

 

Pesticides that meet Health Canada’s standards are registered for use. 

 

The import, sale or use of unregistered pesticides in Canada is a VIOLATION of the Pest Control Products Act, as is using a pesticide in a manner other than directed on the product label. 

 

Health Canada verifies reports of illegal pesticides or misuse through its network of regional officers. 

 

When purchasing a pesticide, consumers should verify that a pest control product number ( PCP number ) appears on the label. 

 

This number indicates that the pesticide has been registered by Health Canada. 

 

Consumers should carefully read, understand and follow label directions when using any pesticide, and pesticides must not be used for purposes other than indicated on the label.

 

To report a suspected violation, pesticide incident, or obtain further information regarding specific enforcement bulletins, contact the Pest Management Information Service. 

 

Media inquiries should be directed to Health Canada Media Relations at 613-957-2983.

Use of a product contrary to label instructions is a VIOLATION of the Pest Control Products Act.

Pelouse Santé Inc Was Fined $8,000 For Using

Two Pest Control Products In A Way That Is

Inconsistent With The Label Directions

 

 

 

In May 2017, Health Canada issued two notices of VIOLATION with a total penalty of $8,000 under the Agriculture and Agri-Food Administrative Monetary Penalties Act to Pelouse Santé Inc ( of St Eustache, Quebec ). 

 

These notices were issued for the use of the pesticides Pyrinex 480 EC Insecticide ( PCP Reg No 23705 ) and a diazinon-based product, in a way that is inconsistent with the directions on their respective labels. 

 

Health Canada has determined that both products were applied during lawn care treatments done in a residential setting during the summer of 2016, which is contrary to the use instructions stated on their labels. 

 

Use of a product contrary to label instructions is a VIOLATION of the Pest Control Products Act. 

 

These AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS may ONLY be applied on specified FOOD CROPS. 

 

Also, all residential uses of pesticides containing chlorpyrifos ( the active ingredient in Pyrinex 480 EC ) were WITHDRAWN by Health Canada since 2003, with the exception of insect bait stations. 

 

And all residential uses of pesticides containing diazinon were WITHDRAWN by Health Canada since 2005.

WE SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT VIOLATING FEDERAL LAW FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE !

 

We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ).  As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about truth-challenged pesticide-hating fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products.  We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths. 

 

NORAHG is the sworn enemy of lying, pompous, smug, uneducated, & pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs.  Overwhelming scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that pest control products are scientifically-safe, and will not cause harm to children, adults, animals, or the environment.  

 

Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence.  Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?! 

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.  We dare to defy the pesticide-hating fanatжcs by exploring the whole truth from an independent perspective on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site      http://pesticidetruths.com/   If you wish to receive free reports on issues that concern you, please contact us at      force.of.de.nature@gmail.com   WILLIAM H GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G
