VERSION 1 OF 5

 

 

 

In April 2014, ONTARIO premier Kathleen Wynne stopped a proposal for provincial prohibition because she believed that this was a federal initiative, and not provincial.  The actions of renegade trade associations, like Ontario Bee-Keepers’ Association ( a.k.a. Sierra Club ), were despicable and destructive, since they demanded reckless and arbitrary prohibition against neonicotinoid insecticides used in the agriculture industry that desperately relies upon these insecticides.

 

On June 11th, 2013, OGUNQUIT residents stopped a proposal to prohibit pest control products used in the urban landscape, signaling a failure of anti-pesticide activists to make the community the first in the state of Maine to arbitrarily impose prohibition.

 

On February 20th, 2013, BRITISH COLUMBIA announced that there will be no provincial pesticide ban for licensed applicators who will now be granted with an exception status.

 

On October 24th, 2012, PORT ALBERNI nixed and rescinded its existing pesticide ban because of the failure of organic pesticide-free maintenance, and the stunningly exorbitant cost of maintaining green spaces with green alternative pesticides in this city located in British Columbia.

 

On October 9th, 2012, WINKLER’s Mayor has made it quite clear he was publicly opposed to the idea of a province-wide pesticide ban in Manitoba because he did not want to see his city’s beautification program go to waste, and did not want to spend the millions of dollars more on a ridiculous ban.

 

On October 9th, 2012, ALTONA’s city mayor strongly and publicly opposed the proposal for a provincial pesticide ban in Manitoba.

On August 22nd, 2012, DURANGO city council voted unanimously to reject and stop a proposed pesticide and synthetic fertilizer ban on city parks and personal property in this American city located in Colorado.

 

On August 10th, 2012, NEWFOUNDLAND & LABRADOR granted an exception status to commercial applicators, despite a 2011 provincial pesticide ban, and resumed road-side spraying throughout the province to control vegetation to improve visibility and reduce moose-vehicle collisions.

 

On July 5th, 2012, CAMPBELL RIVER councillors rejected a staff recommendation for a pesticide ban in this city located in British Columbia, and the proposal was extinguished.

 

On June 28th, 2012, REGINA’s Environment Advisory Committee again decided against a pesticide ban for the second time since June 4th, 2002, when it was found that a ban in this Saskatchewan city was inappropriate.

 

On June 19th, 2012, STEINBACH city council joined other municipal councils to publicly urge the government of Manitoba to drop its plans for a provincial pesticide ban because people should have the right to choose for themselves how they best take care of their own lawns and the city should be able to choose how it takes care of its own green spaces.

 

On June 13th, 2012, PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE publicly opposed Manitoba’s proposed provincial pesticide ban because organic pesticide-free maintenance has not been proven as effective as conventional pesticides, and city councillors were concerned that such a ban was going to cost more money and could be the cause of more problems.

 

On June 6th, 2012, EVERETT’s pesticide ban on its Lowell Park Pilot-Project was ENDED, and the spraying weeds was resumed because this city in the State of Washington was forced to resort to the back-breaking and agonizing job of weed-pulling by hand, and could not find enough volunteers.

 

On June 4th, 2002, REGINA again dropped and stopped a proposal for a municipal pesticide ban because it was not supported by health and policy experts, and it was not supported by local residents.

 

On May 31st, 2012, an ONTARIO Private Member’s Bill 88 would have amended the Pesticides Act to allow professional lawn care businesses to apply some currently-banned products to lawns and gardens.

 

On May 29th, 2012, KAMLOOPS City council did not provide enough support for a ban on all pesticide use, the proposal was stopped, and professional lawn care businesses were granted an exception status in this municipality in British Columbia.

 

On May 22nd, 2012, STUARTBURN publicly opposed Manitoba’s proposed pesticide ban because it would adversely affect this rural municipality and several others throughout the province.

 

On May 17th, 2012, BRITISH COLUMBIA’s Special Committee On Cosmetic Pesticides announced that it would not recommend a provincial pesticide ban, and the proposal was stopped.

 

On April 19th, 2012, SCARBOROUGH rescinded its municipal pesticide ban by replacing its 7-month-old policy promoting the use of organic pesticide-free maintenance with a new policy that allowed chemical pesticides on property owned by this American town in the state of Maine.

 

On March 2nd, 2012, ASHLAND parks department staff reported that organic green alternative pesticides proved largely ineffective for controlling weeds, and parks commissioners unanimously rescinded the pesticide ban in this city located in the state of Oregon, and re-authorized pesticides on baseball and softball infields.

 

On February 6th, 2012, EDMONTON city councillors turned down and stopped calls to ban pesticides, opting instead for a report in two years outlining any progress in reducing city use of these chemicals.

 

On October 27th, 2011, BEAUMONT voted-off and stopped a proposal for a pesticide ban in this town located in Alberta because officials believed that this was a provincial initiative, if not federal.

 

On August 19th, 2011, CHICAGO ( HIGHLAND PARK ) commissioners cancelled the integrated pest management program and rescinded the pesticide ban in this American city because green alternative pesticides did not work and parks became over-run with weeds that covered 60 per cent of the playing surfaces.

 

On June 7th, 2011, GUELPH reversed its pesticide ban, and hired a contractor to apply at least three applications herbicides to eliminate so-called non-native weed species like dandelion because it was not otherwise possible to control weeds in this Ontario city.

 

On May 26th, 2011, QUEBEC’s provincial pesticide ban was invalidated and defeated when a legal challenge was settled, and the provincial government officials were humiliated into admitting that 2,4-D did not pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment.

 

On May 9th, 2011, ALBERTA officials stopped a proposed pesticide ban and stated that the province would not create a ban that conflicted with the federal government.

 

On March 28th, 2011, CALGARY discarded its self-imposed pesticide ban on its municipal green spaces because of the invasion of noxious weeds.

 

On March 8th, 2011, SALMON ARM’s elected officials rescinded a pesticide ban in favour of certified applicators, and provided lawn care businesses in this city located in British Columbia with an exception status. 

 

On January 21st, 2011, GUELPH-ERAMOSA council agreed to an impassioned plea from local farmers and weed experts to rescind a pesticide ban, and reinstated and resumed road-side herbicide applications in this Ontario township since weeds were spreading to adjacent farmland, triggering higher costs for farmers.

 

On December 15th, 2010, ROSSLAND’s proposed pesticide ban died another procedural death and the ban was delayed and stopped in this British Columbia municipality.

 

On June 26th, 2010, VERNON scrapped and stopped a proposed pesticide ban as this city located in British Columbia refused to endorse the idea of telling home-owners that they could not spray on their own private land to keep it immaculate.

 

On May 14th, 2010, MERRITT city council resisted efforts by green activists, and a proposed pesticide ban was stopped in this British Columbia community.

 

On April 1st, 2010, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND’s provincial pesticide ban removed 240 products from use by consumers; however, businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry since they have been provided with an exception status; and 2,4-D herbicide is prohibited for use by either consumers or businesses on lawns, but it is allowed in the golf industry.

 

On February 8th, 2010, KELOWNA granted an exception status to licensed applicators who should be allowed to use whatever pesticides they choose in this municipality in British Columbia.

 

On November 16th, 2009, CALGARY city council steered clear of and stopped an outright pesticide ban, since it was proven in other jurisdictions that these bans do not work.

 

On June 30th, 2009, NEW BRUNSWICK imposed a limited provincial pesticide ban against several over-the-counter pesticide products containing the ingredient 2,4-D, but home-owners could still spot-treat weeds using pre-mixed over-the-counter products, and professional lawn care businesses were granted an exception status if their employees had the proper training in integrated pest management, and if they do not use pesticides over more than fifty per cent of a lawn in one season.

 

On March 26th, 2007, BELLEVILLE’s proposed pesticide ban was stopped because council believed that the Ontario and Canadian governments should be in a much better position to establish more effective and enforceable legislation.

 

On April 3rd, 2003, QUEBEC’s limited provincial pesticide ban was put in force, and finally implemented on April 3rd, 2006, and although Quebec prohibited products containing 2,4-D, it is a little-known fact that Quebec was never truly pesticide-free since it did not ban all pesticides, and continued to permit several conventional products.

 

On June 4th, 2002, REGINA’s Environmental Advisory Committee did not believe it was appropriate to recommend a pesticide ban, and the proposal was stopped.

Discover What Anti-Pesticide And Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists Are Doing And Saying About Subversively Imposing Their Life-Style Choices Against Our Society

Go to THE PESTICIDE TRUTHS WEB-SITE ( ARCHIVE OF REPORTS ) 

 

THE PESTICIDE TRUTHS WEB-SITE

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by LUNATICS who ARBITRARILY AND RECKLESSLY IMPOSE PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and by other ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.

 

We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide and Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERROR is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by LUNATICS.

 

A LUNATIC is a person whose actions and manner are marked by extreme recklessness.

 

The RECKLESS ACTS OF SUBVERSION by these LUNATICS has led to the ARBITRARY IMPOSITION of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in several jurisdictions throughout North America.

 

The result was CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE !

 

Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, provinces like Ontario now have a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK, a MORE DANGEROUS OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT, and a BLACK MARKET IN PESTICIDES.

 

Only TRUE LUNATICS would wish to create a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.

 

Because of these LUNATICS, we are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR    scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from so-called activists ( a.k.a. LUNATICS ) who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry, and the well-being of our communities.

 

NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to LUNATICS and their Anti Pesticide PROHIBITIONS, resulting in the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT CONCOCTED BY LUNATICS of somehow « saving » the environment.

 

NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON-PROFIT NON-PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.

 

NORAHG is dedicated to reporting PESTICIDE FREE FAILURES, as well as the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.

 

THE MYTHS ABOUT BANNING PESTICIDES

 

NORAHG responds on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of the public that DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORT those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry, the Golf Industry, and the Agriculture Industry.

 

THE PUBLIC DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS

 

NORAHG is opposed to PESTICIDE FREE jurisdictions where LUNATICS have DOOMED CHILDREN to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.

 

ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION DESTROYED GREEN SPACES

 

PESTICIDE BANS MADE OUR GREEN SPACES LOOK #@!!% UGLY – PHOTO GALLERY

 

EMERALD ASH BORER – SAFE & EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDES VERSUS CHAIN SAWS

 

NORAHG is concerned that, because of PESTICIDE FREE MAINTENANCE of parks and sports fields, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with the creation of HAZARDOUS SLIPPING AND TRIPPING CONDITIONS.

 

DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES ARE CREATED BY #@!!% PESTICIDE BANS

 

NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.

 

Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009      however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone FORCE OF NATURE Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.

 

THE PESTICIDE TRUTHS WEB-SITE

 

Pesticide Truths and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
