Take-Over Crisis

 

Conflicts-Of-Interest Regarding The Take-Over ?!?!

 

 

CGSA Has Been Taken-Over By Golf Course Owners

 

 

TAKE-OVER

 

In fall 2017, it was announced Jeff Calderwood, the CEO of the National Golf Course Owners Association [ NGCOA ], would TAKE-OVER the Canadian Golf Course Superintendents Association [ CGSA ] as executive director. 

 

Should CGSA leaders have been trusted to avoid the trade association’s unavoidable train wreck crisis ?!?!

 

 

Some CGSA Decision-Makers Were

Employed By Chapter Members Of NGCOA

 

 

CGSA BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 

Evidently, this take-over was approved by the CGSA Board of Directors. 

 

Why was a very small group of decision-makers, 10 CGSA directors, allowed to make a settlement that would unravel a 50-year legacy, and that would influence 1000s of people in the golf industry ?!?! 

 

Was there a conflict-of-interest with decision-makers regarding the CGSA take-over ?!?! 

 

Was this the reason why CGSA did not see a crisis ?!?! 

 

 

 

JAMES FLETT

 

For example, when the take-over was approved, James Flett served as CGSA President. 

 

Flett was also employed as superintendent at Muskoka Lakes Golf & Country Club, which is a Chapter Member of NGCOA. 

 

Was there a conflict-of-interest with Flett regarding the take-over of CGSA by NGCOA ?!?! 

 

Was Flett the reason why CGSA did not see a crisis ?!?! 

 

 

JOHN McLINDEN

 

Another example    John McLinden served as CGSA Ontario Director at CGSA.  McLinden was also employed as superintendent at Ladies Golf Club of Toronto, which is a Chapter Member of NGCOA. 

 

Was there a conflict-of-interest with McLinden regarding the take-over of CGSA by NGCOA ?!?! 

 

Was McLinden the reason why CGSA did not see a crisis ?!?! 

 

 

RECUSAL

 

Did both Flett and McLinden recuse themselves from the decision-making process ?!?! 

 

Was the take-over decision tainted by Flett and McLinden ?!?! 

 

Was this the reason why CGSA did not see a crisis ?!?! 

 

 

CGSA Continues To Be Incapable

Of Making Any Correct Decisions

 

 

RATIFICATION

 

Additionally, why wasn’t a decision of this magnitude ratified by a vote from the general membership ?!?! 

 

Perhaps the CGSA take-over decision will be declared null and void until the general membership can examine the alleged conflicts-of-interests, as well as all other information.

 

Will the general membership expose why CGSA did not see a crisis ?!?! 

 

Will the general membership find explanations as to why the CGSA’s 50-year legacy has been unilaterally unraveled ?!?!

Take-Over Crisis

 

Reaction From CGSA Members About The Take-Over

 

 

NOT All Superintendents Are Happy That

CGSA Has Been Taken-Over By NGCOA

 

 

Reaction to the take-over crisis has been mixed. 

 

Golf Industry Network.Ca received a number of calls and spoken with people during a recent Golf Industry Expo show, and it appears NOT all superintendents are happy with this appointment. 

 

One superintendent said   

 

His taking the position to head both organizations is a clear CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST and really stems from the CGSA having NO ABILITY to support the structure they created out of a DESIRE OF SELF-IMPORTANCE. 

 

Another superintendent stated   

 

Many of us report to the golf course owner and Calderwood works for them. 

 

HOW MUCH SUPPORT are we really going to have with this set-up ?!?! 

 

Finally, a few believe Calderwood is just going to LEVERAGE the golf course superintendents with PROGRAMS THAT BENEFIT THE OWNERS. 

 

Unlike the other golf associations, there are a few other turf associations in Canada that are open to memberships for superintendents. 

 

It will be interesting to see how the current membership in the CGSA reacts to the take-over crisis, and if the NGCOA will be able to show value and support.

Take-Over Crisis

 

Was The Take-Over Of CGSA Motivated By Money ?!?!

 

 

$100,000 Financial Mis-Management

Preceded The NGCOA Take-Over

 

 

For the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association, they have been without an executive director for some time. 

 

In 2016, Canadian Golf Superintendents Association announced it was conducting a complete review of its operations. 

 

The review came on the heels of a deficit-crisis of more than $100,000 the association ran up in its 2014 fiscal year. 

 

The CGSA executive director, Ken Cousineau, was terminated by the association. 

 

Cousineau’s departure from CGSA was a welcome relief ! 

 

Was the financial mis-management crisis of CGSA the ultimate reason for its take-over by NGCOA in 2017 ?!?! 

 

Additionally, why wasn’t a decision of this magnitude ratified by a vote from the general membership ?!?! 

 

Future generations will ask CGSA   

 

Why was CGSA so badly mis-managed ?!?! 

 

Why has the CGSA’s 50-year legacy been unilaterally unraveled ?!?!

Background Information

 

The Critical Issues That Must Be Addressed By The Golf Industry    NOW !

 

 

Crisis ?!?! 

 

CGSA does not see any crisis ?!?!

 

Regardless of the TAKE-OVER of the Canadian Golf Course Superintendents Association, the golf industry must immediately address several critical issues.

 

Anyone who does not bother to address these issues does not deserve a career, or a business, or any success in the golf industry. 

 

 

 

――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

Critical Issue For The Golf Industry

 

1.   Pest Control Products

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must STRONGLY ADOPT THE POSITION that conventional pest control products are scientifically-safe and will cause NO harm to players, worker, and the environment. 

 

The golf industry must also ADOPT the policy that the ONLY course of action against prohibition is through LITIGATION. 

 

Court action will never permanently stop golf-hating fanatжcs, but WILL drain their resources while the golf industry seeks other courses of action.  


The golf industry must ESTABLISH policies for expelling « activist-superintendents » from its trade associations who falsely-allege that the use of pest control products harm the environment.

Critical Issue For The Golf Industry

 

2.   Pesticide Ban Exception Status 

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must PLAN for the inevitable and total revocation of its exception status in most jurisdictions across Canada. 

 

This catastrophe is becoming INCREASINGLY PROBABLE on a large scale. 

 

Government officials may consider imposing prohibition against the golf industry once they realize the fact that up to 6 per cent of ALL conventional pest control products are used for golf course maintenance. 

 

Interestingly, golf facilities often employ THE VERY SAME conventional pest control products that are used to control invasive weeds and damaging insects on municipal and residential properties, which are currently prohibited in many jurisdictions.

3.   Trade Associations

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry’s trade associations must CEASE publicly supporting the PROHIBITION against conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape. 

 

These trade associations must STOP torpedoing the professional lawn care industry.

4.   Fertilizers 

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must also ADOPT the position that its use of any fertilizers DOES NOT harm the environment. 

 

Trade associations must also STOP conspiring to impose the bogus doctrines of arbitrary and unnecessary fertilizer nutrient reduction. 

 

It is wrong for these doctrines to allege that any arbitrary reduction in essential fertilizer nutrients would be helpful environmentally. 

 

These fanatжcal doctrines are defying over twenty-five years of research    fertilizer nutrient reduction WILL NOT lead to lower concentrations of contaminants in our environment.

5.   Government Officials & Activists 

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must CEASE its pointless and wasteful attempts to educate and to convince pesticide-hating left-wing government officials and activists. 

 

These fanatжcs will NEVER reverse their attitudes against conventional pest control products. 

 

Their false narratives, illegal activities, and destructive campaigns must be rigorously challenged with debates and responses that are direct and honest.

Critical Issue For The Golf Industry

 

6.   Enviro-Organizations 

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZE that it is on a collision course with the looming shipwreck of golf-hating / anti-pesticide enviro-organizations that are demanding a revocation of the golf industry’s pesticide ban exception status. 

 

Since the mid-2000s, the following enviro-organizations have set their sights on the annihilation of the golf industry and ⁄ or have conspired to impose reckless and arbitrary prohibition against conventional pest control products     

 

   Canadian Cancer Society ( CCS )      Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE )      Canadian Coalition for Health and Environment ( CCHE )      Canadian Environmental Law Association ( CELA )      Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides ( CAP-NL, Newfoundland & Labrador )      David Suzuki Foundation      Ecology Action Centre ( EAC, Nova Scotia )      Ecojustice Canada      Equiterre ( Quebec shield for David Suzuki Foundation )      Green Party of Ontario & its provincial parties      Liberal Party of Canada ( LPC ) & its provincial parties      New Democratic Party of Canada ( NDP ) and its provincial wings      Ontario Bee-Keepers’ Association ( OBA ) ( Shield for Sierra Club )      Pesticide Free BC ( British Columbia shield for Canadian Cancer Society )      Pesticide Free Ontario ( PFO )      Prevent Cancer Now ( PCN ) ( Shield for Canadian Cancer Society )      Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario ( RNAO )      Sierra Club of Canada & its provincial chapters      Westcoast Environmental Law Association ( WCEL )      World Wildlife Fund ( WWF ) ( Using Liberal Party of Canada as a political shield ).

 

These enviro-organizations are filled with golf-hating, anti-pesticide, and science-hating fanatжcs. 

 

These and other organizations have already inflicted catastrophic business and financial carnage, and have further inflicted terrжr, despair, and destitution against thousands of hapless business owners and their employees throughout the professional lawn care industry.

7.   Relationships With Enviro-Organizations 

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must TERMINATE all relationships with all golf-hating / anti-pesticide enviro-organizations that conspire to prohibit against conventional pest control products, like Canadian Cancer Society, ( a.k.a. Prevent Cancer Now ), World Wildlife Fund ( a.k.a. Liberal Party of Canada ), and others. 

 

As long as Golf Canada, and the entire golf industry, continue to provide money to Canadian Cancer Society, the golf industry IS UNDER THREAT OF BEING ANNIHILATED !

The golf industry must CREATE a fully transparent data-base for public right-to-know concerning its conventional pest control products, as well as related chemicals such as adjuvants and colorants. 

 

The data-base should include information on label documents, re-entry intervals, sign posting, pre-notification, cancer classification, and more.

9.   Integrated Pest Management

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must CEASE focusing on the ineffective practices of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) as the solution to environmental concerns or public affairs problems. 

 

Trade associations falsely allege that the best way to minimize inputs is through the use of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ), and they are WRONG ! 

 

Overall, IPM-cultural-practices DO NOT control pests of established turf and ornamentals. 

 

The golf industry must VIGOROUSLY EMBARK on a massive public relations campaign to discredit IPM-cultural-practices, declaring them as dismal failures.

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must ESTABLISH policies for expelling superintendents and golf facilities using this inaccurate and misleading term from its trade associations. 

 

Providing players with high-quality conditions CANNOT be successful with inferior green alternative pesticides and ineffective sustainable practices. 

 

Additionally, the golf industry must VIGOROUSLY EMBARK on a massive public relations campaign to discredit organic pesticide-free maintenance practices, declaring them as DISMAL PESTICIDE-FREE FAILURES.

Critical Issue For The Golf Industry

 

11.   Alternatives For Pest Control 

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must immediately STOP promoting inferior green alternative pesticides. 

 

All so-called alternatives to conventional products must be DENOUNCED as BOGUS. 

 

Green alternatives like nematodes, hydrogen peroxide, and compost tea DO NOT WORK, and may even be DANGEROUS and ILLEGAL.

Critical Issue For The Golf Industry

 

12.   Maintenance Protocols

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must DEVELOP and publish golf maintenance protocols and performance standards concerning the regular use of conventional pest control products and fertilizers, based upon REAL scientific research. 

 

These protocols and performance standards must DISAVOW the use of inferior green alternative pesticides, the ineffective practices of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ), and the bogus doctrines of fertilizer nutrient reduction. 

 

The intensity of disease activity MAY be suppressed with correct mowing practices. 

 

One of the most important golf maintenance protocols is Turf Species Transition. 

 

All golf facilities must be expected to transition their putting greens from annual bluegrass to creeping bentgrass.

 

Improved varieties of creeping bentgrass are more resistant to pests than annual bluegrass, an invasive grass species that is highly susceptible to pests and requires the use of more pest control products. 

 

Annual bluegrass is also more susceptible to abiotic disorders, such as winter injury and summer stress.

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must OPPOSE go brown anti-cosmetic golf course maintenance. 

 

Golfers DO NOT want to play on brown depressing unplayable courses. 

 

Golf-hating fanatжcs want go brown junk golf courses with the ridiculous notion that this is somehow environmentally sustainable.   [ ?!?! ] 

 

In fact, brown means unhealthy, unplayable, and undesirable turf.

14.   Political Action

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must openly and financially SUPPORT all Conservative political candidates who oppose any prohibition of pest control products and fertilizers. 

 

Whenever successfully elected to power, Liberals, New Democrats, and Greens WILL ALWAYS conspire to impose fanatжcal NATIONAL PROHIBITION against ALL pest control products. 

 

With a Conservative victory in the 2019 Canadian Federal Election, there will be NO NATIONAL PROHIBITION against pest control products.

Critical Issue For The Golf Industry

 

15.   Teaching & Research Institutions

 

 

 

COURSE OF ACTION

 

 

The golf industry must TERMINATE all relationships with all teaching and research institutions that validate and support the PROHIBITION against pest control products. 

 

This would be especially true for the University of Guelph. 

 

ALL joint activities and educational seminars MUST BE ENDED for an indefinite period of time. 

 

The following teaching institutions have been infested with anti-pesticide fanatжcs and ⁄ or have conspired to impose reckless and arbitrary prohibition against conventional pest control products     

 

   Dalhousie University ( Halifax, Nova Scotia )      Gaia College ( Duncan, British Columbia )      McMaster University ( Hamilton, Ontario )      Simon Fraser University ( Burnaby, British Columbia )      University of British Columbia, UBC ( Vancouver, British Columbia )      University of Guelph ( Guelph, Ontario )      University of Manitoba ( Winnipeg, Manitoba )      University of Ottawa ( Ottawa, Ontario )      University of Waterloo ( Waterloo, Ontario )      University of Western Ontario ( London, Ontario )      University of Winnipeg ( Winnipeg, Manitoba )      University of Windsor ( Windsor, Ontario )  

 

These teaching institutions are filled with anti-pesticide and science-hating fanatжcs who are influencing the next generation of golf course superintendents. 

 

If they are not WITH US, then they are AGAINST US !

We Speak The Whole Truth About The Golf Industry 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. 

 

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 brain-child 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
