UPDATE – Neonicotinoid Prohibition Stopped – Health Canada Special Review Decision On Neonicotinoid Insecticides & Their Impact On Aquatic Insects – Part 1 – 2021 03 31

Summary

Updates About Neonicotinoids

There Is No Bee Crisis 

Neonicotinoids are a category of insecticides used to control insects on a variety of agricultural crops, including as a seed treatment, & on turf & ornamental plants, as well as other uses.  The use of neonicotinoids DOES NOT create bee colony collapse disorder.  The introduction of neonicotinoids has helped boost crop yields while protecting bee health, human health & the environment.  Historically, bee crises are nothing new since heavy losses have been reported for a long time, & NOT because of insecticides.  There is NO bee crisis caused by neonicotinoids. 

On January 5th, 2016, Health Canada & US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) released their risk assessments of a neonicotinoid insecticide, IMIDACLOPRID, which showed that Approved Pesticide Product Label directions & rules for foliar & seed-treatments of IMIDACLOPRID should either prevent or limit the UNACCEPTABLE RISKS to the health of bees. 

THERE IS NO BEE CRISIS    a SPECIAL REVIEW shows that there are MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE RISKS to bee health from neonicotinoid insecticides.  Why are a few bee-keepers losing their bees ?!?!  The most likely cause of losses are the bee-keepers themselves.  Incompetent bee-keepers are harming their own hives. 

Canada’s Neonicotinoid Decision 

Health Canada will continue to ALLOW neonicotinoids for use in the agriculture industry. 

On March 31st, 2021, Health Canada decided that, when used according to new mitigation measures, CLOTHIANIDIN & THIAMETHOXAM WILL NOT POSE MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE RISKS TO AQUATIC INSECTS.  To further protect aquatic insects, Health Canada intends to UPDATE the use of some uses of CLOTHIANIDIN & THIAMETHOXAM, by introducing additional MITIGATION MEASURES & RESTRICTIONS on some of the uses that remain registered.  The new information collected during the SPECIAL REVIEW allowed the Health Canada to determine that SOME USES DO NOT POSE A RISK TO AQUATIC INSECTS, while other uses DO pose risks of concern.  The new measures for the uses that remain registered include      revised label instructions such as reduced application rates    reduced number of applications, &    spray buffer zones. 

On May 19th, 2021, Health Canada released the FINAL RE-EVALUATION DECISION concerning IMIDACLOPRID.  Health Canada’s assessment indicated that, with additional risk mitigation measures, many uses of IMIDACLOPRID products meet current standards for protection of human health & the environment.  See later report. 

Everyone must thank Health Canada for its RE-EVALUATION DECISIONS.  This is because neonicotinoids can be used effectively & safely with MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE RISKS to bee health. 

Ontario’s Regressive & Harmful Prohibition

Against Neonicotinoid Insecticides 

Ontario continues to defy Health Canada with its PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION against neonicotinoids used by the agriculture industry.  On July 1st, 2015    another date which will live in the period of ANTI-PESTICIDE & ENVIRONMENTAL INFAMY    REGRESSIVE & HARMFUL PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION against the sale & use of neonicotinoid-treated seeds in Ontario was imposed .  Ontario’s neonicotinoid-hating left-wing government officials have cherry-picked science data & have defied the findings of Health Canada.  According to the preliminary pollinator assessment by Health Canada, neonicotinoids, like imidacloprid, are MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE RISKS to bee health.  Prohibition proved-to be unnecessary as a means of protecting bees

As of 2020, Ontario re-affirmed that it would continue to maintain its PROHIBITION against neonicotinoids.  And, Ontario will continue to be HIGHLY UNFAIR, EXTREMELY BIASED, & HIGHLY PREJUDICIAL    playing fields & golf courses will continue to enjoy thousands & thousands of pesticide ban EXCEPTION STATUSES for neonicotinoids, but NOT professional lawn care. 

Honey Bee Colonies & Production Are Thriving 

Overall, bees are actually GROWING & THRIVING.  There is NO bee colony collapse disorder because of neonicotinoid use.  There are NO plummeting of bee numbers.  Bees are NOT being lost because of neonicotinoids. 

In the agriculture industry, Best Management Practices will protect their crops while also minimizing neonicotinoid exposures to beneficial insects like bees.  Direct exposure to bees is minimized with coated-seeds that are buried in the soil.  This renders neonicotinoids inaccessible to bees.  Moreover, these insecticides systemically penetrate into the plant tissues where they remain further inaccessible to bees.  Bees DO NOT consume plant tissues, &, therefore, are NOT harmed by neonicotinoids.  There is NO bee crisis caused by these insecticides.  Bees are actually GROWING & THRIVING. 

Officially, the MAIN CAUSES of colony losses during the winter are reported to be      poor queens    varroa mites   weak colonies    weather conditions.  Bee-keepers know full well that these are the PRIMARY PROBLEMS associated with bee colony collapse disorder, & NOT insecticides.  

However, some bee-keepers are losing their bees over & over again simply because they are INCOMPETENT.  Some bee-keepers appear to be unable or unwilling to mitigate their losses, leading observers to conclude that bee-keepers who are losing their bees over & over again may NOT BE COMPETENT to handle their businesses, & may be WHOLY UNSUITED to be raising bees.  There is NO bee crisis caused by neonicotinoids. 

Why are a few bee-keepers losing their bees ?!?!  The most likely cause of losses are the bee-keepers themselves.  Some bee-keepers are harming their own hives.  Observers have concluded that many bee-keepers have NO IDEA what they are doing, & are simply NOT skilled to raise bees.  They are INCOMPETENT since they are harming their own bees over & over again.  There IS a bee crisis because of INCOMPETENT bee-keepers; there is NO bee crisis caused by neonicotinoids.

UPDATE    Neonicotinoid Prohibition Stopped

Health Canada Decision

New Mitigation Measures Will Help Protect The

Health Of Aquatic Insect & Their Environments

Clothianidin & Thiamethoxam Will Not

Pose Additional Risks To Aquatic Insects

On March 31st, 2021, following a SPECIAL REVIEW that included broad public consultation and science-based assessments, Health Canada released its FINAL RE-EVALUATION DECISIONS on the [ MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE ] RISKS to aquatic insects from two neonicotinoid pesticides    CLOTHIANIDIN and THIAMETHOXAM. 

To protect aquatic insects, Health Canada will be updating the use of some uses of CLOTHIANIDIN and THIAMETHOXAM, and introducing additional MITIGATION MEASURES AND RESTRICTIONS on some of the uses that remain registered. 

The new information collected during the SPECIAL REVIEW allowed the Health Canada to determine that SOME USES DO NOT POSE [ MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE RISKS ] TO AQUATIC INSECTS, while other uses DO pose risks of concern. 

The revised conditions of use must be reflected on all product labels no later than 24 months from today. 

A small number of uses for which there are no suitable alternatives will continue for an additional 24 months. 

Adjustments to the use of pesticides will be in accordance with the Health Canada’s Policy On Cancellations & Amendments Following Re-Evaluation & Special Review. 

For this SPECIAL REVIEW, Health Canada undertook significant engagement and consultation with industry, stake-holders, and Canadians, receiving more than 47,000 comments from the public through this process. 

The SPECIAL REVIEW also considered a significant amount of new water monitoring data and scientific studies and papers. 

As part of its commitment to openness and transparency, Health Canada is publishing information related to these SPECIAL REVIEW and FINAL RE-EVALUATION DECISIONS,  including the outcome of the science evaluation as well as next steps.

Summary

More Updates About
Neonicotinoids

Thank You Health Canada 

Health Canada will continue to ALLOW neonicotinoid insecticides for many uses in the agriculture industry.  This is because neonicotinoids can be used effectively & safely with MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE RISKS to the health of bees.  At Health Canada, neonicotinoids must undergo a rigorous scientific assessment process which provides reasonable certainty that NO HARM WILL OCCUR when used appropriately.  Everyone must thank Health Canada for continuing to allow neonicotinoids on agricultural crop seeds & greenhouse vegetables. 

Politicized Prohibition Against Turf Use 

Unfortunately, Health Canada has NATIONALLY PROHIBITED the use of CLOTHIANIDIN neonicotinoid ( i.e. Arena 50WG Insecticide ) for TURF USES on municipal, industrial, & residential sites.  Where was the rigorous assessment for prohibiting these TURF USES ?!?!  Why does Health Canada ALLOW these insecticides for use on crop seeds & greenhouse vegetables, & yet, NATIONALLY PROHIBITS against all TURF USES ?!?!  Is this POLITICIZED prohibition ?!?!  Health Canada has clearly succumbed to INTERFERENCE, INTIMIDATION, COERCION, & TERRЖR from anti-neonicotinoid & environmental-fanatжcs organizations that demand NATIONAL PROHIBITIONS against all TURF USES      David Suzuki Foundation    Friends of the Earth    Liberal Party of Canada    Prevent Cancer Now ( a.k.a. Canadian Cancer Society )    World Wildlife Fund    & others. 

Prohibitions Imposed By The

Trudeau Liberal Government 

As the current government-in-power, the Trudeau Liberals have been INTERFERING with decisions of Health Canada.  After winning the Canadian General Election on October 19th, 2015, the Trudeau Liberals immediately imposed ARBITRARY NATIONAL PROHIBITIONS against pest control products like iprodione, chlorothalonil, & carbaryl. 

And for neonicotinoid insecticides, NATIONAL PROHIBITION has been proposed under the FALSE-PRETEXT of somehow protecting the health of bees !  Really ?!?!  Will this really protect the health of bees ?!?!  Is this just simply POLITICIZED PROHIBITION ?!?!  Is this a failure of science-based evidence used to assess pest control products ?!?! 

Official Pesticide-Hating Policies

Of The Trudeau Liberal Party 

Why does Health Canada allow neonicotinoid insecticides for use in the agriculture industry, & yet, NATIONALLY PROHIBITS ALL TURF USES ?!?! 

Because the government of the Trudeau Liberal Party is COMMITTED to IMPOSE arbitrary & fanatжcal NATIONAL PROHIBITIONS that will inevitably lead to the ANNIHILATION of businesses operating in agriculture, golf, & lawn care industries    these businesses rely on the use of safe, effective, & conventional pest control products. 

The Trudeau Liberal Party operates as the political shield for World Wildlife Fund & other anti-neonicotinoid & environmental-fanatжcs organizations.  Since 2000, the official policies of the Liberal Party have urged the federal government to immediately impose ARBITRARY NATIONAL PROHIBITIONS against ALL pest control products.  And, in 2014, the Liberal Party demanded that Health Canada IMMEDIATELY IMPOSE NATIONAL PROHIBITIONS against ALL neonicotinoid insecticides.  According to pesticide-hating Liberal Party, these prohibitions must be imposed until these insecticides have been scientifically proven to be safe.  [ ?!?! ] 

The official pesticide-hating policies of the Trudeau Liberal Party defy the fact that conventional pest control products are already proven to be scientifically-safe, & they WILL NOT cause harm to bee health, human health, or the environment. 

The Nation Is Protected By Health

Canada’s Science-Based Expertise 

Prohibitions DO NOT have to be imposed since ALL pest control products have already been proven to be scientifically-safe.  Science-based evidence is used to assess ALL pest control products.  Only those pest control products that pose MINIMAL & ACCEPTABLE RISKS to bee health, human health & the environment become government-approved & federally-legal. 

ALL assessments used for the approval of pest control products must be completed by laboratories sanctioned by Good Laboratory Practice ( GLP ), & NOT using the official pesticide-hating policies of the Trudeau Liberal Party.  GLP applies to ALL testing of pest control products to obtain data on their properties and/or safety with respect to bee health, human health & the environment, for the purpose of supporting an application for registration or a research permit.  Ultimately, the cost to manufacturers to get a pest control product scientifically-assessed for safety & brought to market is about 250 million dollars    which is 250 million dollars more than any assessment performed by the Trudeau Liberal Party of Canada. 

The instruction & safety precautions that appear on the Approved Pesticide Product Label are scientifically-designed to PROTECT bee health, human health & the environment.  Health Canada helps PROTECT the public by researching, assessing, & collaborating in the management of the health risks & safety hazards associated with the many consumer products that are used every day.  It employs over 350 doctorate-level experts & leading scientific experts on pest control products.  Health Canada, & NOT the Trudeau Liberal Party, has the ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE & ULTIMATE CREDIBILITY on pest control products.

UPDATE    Neonicotinoid Prohibition Stopped

Health Canada Decision

Health Canada Has Placed Restrictions On

Certain Uses But Has Ruled Neonicotinoids

Are Generally Not A Threat To Aquatic Insects

The FINAL RE-EVALUATION DECISION has been delayed several times, but, on March 31st, 2021, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency [ PMRA ] announced that neonicotinoid insecticides are NO THREAT to aquatic insects when used as a seed-treatment on canola and in many other instances. 

According to Mr Pierre Petelle, President of CropLife Canada   

While we are still reviewing the full details of the SPECIAL REVIEW decisions, we are pleased that [ HEALTH CANADA ] has affirmed that, in many cases, these important tools can be used WITHOUT POSING UNACCEPTABLE RISKS to aquatic invertebrates. 

Unfortunately, in some cases    specifically in the horticulture sector    many important uses of these products will be restricted, and, in some cases, removed entirely. 

In 2018, Health Canada proposed to PHASE OUT [ I.E. PROHIBIT ] all agricultural uses of THIAMETHOXAM, a Syngenta product, and CLOTHIANIDIN , a Bayer product. 

Neonicotinoids are widely-used in Canadian agriculture. 

They are applied as a seed-treatment to most of the corn and canola seeds in Canada, and a portion of the soybean seeds. 

They are also applied to fruit, vegetable, and berry crops. 

Health Canada continues to perform a SPECIAL REVIEW the safety of IMIDACLOPRID, another Bayer product. 

It will make a FINAL RE-EVALUATION DECISION on IMIDACLOPRID later in 2021. 

―――――――――――――――――――

UPDATE    Neonicotinoid Prohibition Stopped

Health Canada Backs Away From Ban

In the summer of 2018, Health Canada scientists said [ I.E. FALSELY-ALLEGED ] that neonicotinoid insecticides were accumulating in ponds, creeks, and other water bodies near agricultural land.  [ ?!?! ] 

The concentrations of neonicotinoids were harmful to midges and mayflies and therefore posed a threat to the birds and other animals that rely on the insects for food. 

According to Health Canada in 2019   

Current research shows that these pesticides are detected frequently in water bodies at levels that could be harmful [ ?!?! ] to certain aquatic organisms. 

The department expects to report on its findings at the end of 2019. 

That RE-EVALUATION DECISION was delayed a couple of times in 2020, and then, pushed back to 2021, partly because of a huge volume of submissions [ MOSTLY BY PESTICIDE-HATING FANATЖCS ] to Health Canada regarding the safety of neonicotinoids. 

According to Health Canada   

For this SPECIAL REVIEW, Health Canada undertook significant engagement and consultation with industry, stake-holders, and Canadians, receiving more than 47,000 comments from the public through this process. 

The Canadian Canola Growers Association and Alberta Agriculture collected and analyzed water samples near canola fields in Western Canada to test the ponds, creeks, and water bodies for the presence of neonicotinoids. 

Both groups found TINY CONCENTRATIONS of neonicotinoids at levels BELOW THE THRESHOLD OF NO UNACCEPTABLE RISK to aquatic insects. 

Health Canada incorporated the results into its RE-EVALUATION DECISION. 

According to Health Canada   

Based on these data it was determined that the RISKS to aquatic invertebrates resulting from chronic exposure following application of CLOTHIANIDIN under certain currently registered conditions are ACCEPTABLE. 

Health Canada scientists came to the same conclusion about THIAMETHOXAM. 

Health Canada’s willingness to look at additional information and BACK AWAY from a neonicotinoid BAN [ I.E. NATIONAL PROHIBITION ] is encouraging, CropLife Canada said. 

Background Information

CROPLIFE CANADA    This is the trade association representing manufacturers, developers, & distributors of pest control products, including those designed specifically for urban use.

There are no changes for use in canola but lower application rates in corn and soybeans. 

For THIAMETHOXAM   

   The maximum seed-treatment rate for field corn is REDUCED to 200 g active ingredient per 100 kg
seed. 

   The maximum seed-treatment rate for soybean is REDUCED to 30 g ai per 100 kg seed. 

For CLOTHIANIDIN    

   The maximum seed-treatment rate for field corn is REDUCED to 150 g ai per 100 kg seed. 

As well, Health Canada has CUT THE RATES of seed-treatment allowed for vegetable crops and REDUCED the allowable foliar rates on potatoes and other crops. 

The Health Canada FINAL RE-EVALUATION DECISION for mitigation measures and label change takes full effect in 24 months. 

―――――――――――――――――――

UPDATE    Neonicotinoid Prohibition Stopped

Environmental Fanatжcs

While CropLife Canada is pleased that Health Canada changed its position on the two neonicotinoids, environmental [-FANATЖCS-ORGANIZATIONS ] are not. 

Six groups, [ LED BY ] David Suzuki Foundation, slammed the FINAL RE-EVALUATION DECISION.  [ ?!?! ] 

Background Information

SUZUKI & CO-CONSPIRATORS    Several anti-pesticide & environmental-fanatжcs organizations, such as David Suzuki Foundation, have operated to subversively participate, with Liberal & New Democrat governments, in the conspiracy to prohibit against conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape & used by the agriculture industry. 

According to Charlotte Dawe, pesticide-hating fanatжc at Wilderness Committee   

We are not convinced that tinkering with label restrictions will be effective in reducing concentrations of neonicotinoids in the environment.  [ ?!?! ] 

Certainly it will be less effective than the originally proposed ban.  [ ?!?! ] 

Background Information

WILDERNESS COMMITTEE    Charlotte Dawe & Wilderness Committee are wrong about neonicotinoid insecticides.  Wilderness Committee is a mere fund-raising, lobbying, & profit-seeking organization, & NOT a science, NOT a research, NOT a health, & NOT an agronomist’s organization.  It is certainly NOT science-based !  Wilderness Committee is nothing more than an anti-pesticide & environmental-fanatжcs organization that anyone can join by simply paying for a membership.  Otherwise, those who operate Wilderness Committee, like Dawe, have absolutely NO recognized training, NO background, & NO education in matters concerning pest control products, & they are certainly NOT competent to make any assessments regarding environmental issues.  Wilderness-committee-fanatжcs like Dawe have huge vested interests in subversively interfering on issues that they know nothing about.  With its subversive campaigns, Dawe is using Wilderness Committee to interfere with partisan politics, &, consequently, Wilderness Committee is in violation of taxation laws.  If Dawe wants Wilderness Committee to interfere in partisan politics, then Wilderness Committee’s charity tax-exempt status must be revoked.  The public has NO choice but to complain about Dawe & Wilderness Committee by contacting business, fund-raising, government, & taxation agencies !  Dawe & Wilderness Committee must suffer the spotlight of scrutiny, & the terrжr of taxation agencies.
