The Edmonton Pesticide Ban Is Rejected
and Gideon Forman Continues To Not Be
Taken Seriously By Government Officials
FEBRUARY 10TH, 2012
LETTER TO THE EDITOR ― MEDIA RELEASE
RESPONSE TO GIDEON FORMAN
THE CALGARY HERALD
FORMAN’S FAILURES AND LEGACY
Gideon Forman wanted the City of Edmonton to IMPLEMENT a NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.
And he FAILED !
Predictably, Forman is NO LONGER TAKEN SERIOUSLY.
Government Officials are no longer as easily coerced into agreeing with Anti-Pesticide Activists like Forman since they have been warned in advance !
They have seen what has been happening in Eastern Canada !
The City of Edmonton is located in Alberta, a province that, on August 9th, 2011, stated that it STRONGLY SUPPORTS the use of SCIENCE-BASED EVIDENCE when assessing pest control products.
Moreover, the Government of Alberta WILL NOT CREATE RESTRICTIONS OR LAWS THAT CONFLICT WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, that is relied upon for health and safety assessments.
Consequently, Forman FAILED provincially as well.
Forman, who does NOT believe in SCIENCE-BASED EVIDENCE, has NO TRAINING and NO BACKGROUND in matters concerning pest control products.
But he has a HUGE VESTED INTEREST IN PERPETUATING IMAGINARY DANGER about pest control products … BECAUSE HE IS PAID TO DO SO.
He is even PAID to make PRESENTATIONS on how to organize a SUBVERSIVE Anti-Pesticide Campaign.
With his SEVERE LACK OF SCIENTIFIC CREDENTIALS, Forman WRONGLY PROMOTES Green Alternatives Pesticides ―
« We can have beautiful properties without using these [ conventional ] chemicals ? » [ ?!?! ]
There are NO viable, efficacious, economical, or low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.
Overall, Green Alternative Pesticides are INEFFECTIVE, INADEQUATE, HIGH-RISK, MORE TOXIC, and STUNNINGLY EXPENSIVE !
In jurisdictions like Ontario, Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION led to HARDSHIP AND LOSSES for the Professional Lawn Care businesses because there were NO valid economical alternatives to replace the prohibited products.
Green Alternatives were a DISMAL FAILURE.
Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, the owners, employees, and families dependent on Professional Lawn Care businesses faced TERROR, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION.
There were NO OPPORTUNITIES FOR BUSINESS GROWTH.
Here are more examples of the DISMAL and DEADLY CONSEQUENCES of PROHIBITION in Ontario caused by Gideon Forman ―
The City of GUELPH has public green spaces that LOOK LIKE GARBAGE DUMPS, and, consequently, it has hired a contractor to apply AT LEAST THREE APPLICATIONS of PROHIBITED herbicides to eliminate weeds and grasses.
The City of KINGSTON has sports fields that LOOK LIKE GARBAGE DUMPS ― they are OVER-RUN WITH WEED PESTS because there are NO valid economical alternatives to replace PROHIBITED herbicides, and Kingston does NOT have the budget for sodding or slit-seeding in order to repair all of the DAMAGE caused by PROHIBITION.
The City of KINGSTON was also the SCENE OF A DEATH RESULTING FROM PROHIBITION ― on June 28th, 2011, an Ontario home-owner did not realize that HAND-WEEDING A TOXIC NOXIOUS WEED on his property would CONTRIBUTE TO HIS DEATH ― this home-owner was ULTIMATELY DOOMED by PROHIBITION that prevented him from using the SAFEST and MOST EFFECTIVE products for controlling weeds, and he was FORCED TO PULL THE TOXIC NOXIOUS WEEDS BY HAND, an action that ultimately led to his DEATH.
The City of LONDON, once known as « The Forest City », has been UNABLE TO SAVE ITS DYING STREET TREES without the use of pest control products.
The City of SMITHS FALLS was the SCENE OF THE DEATH OF A DOG RESULTING FROM PROHIBITION ― on December 10th, 2010, a woman watched her dog choke to death in a KILL-TRAP at Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club ― PROHIBITION forced the club into using the DEADLY TRAPS since it was unable to SAFELY and EFFECTIVELY remove the rodents’ food sources without the use of conventional insecticides.
The City of WINDSOR has LOST ITS STATUS as « The City of Roses » ― Windsor is REMOVING MOST OF ITS ORNAMENTAL ROSE PLANTINGS because it is unable to take care of them without conventional pest control products.
The Township of GUELPH-ERAMOSA has road-sides that LOOK LIKE GARBAGE DUMPS ― consequently, it has RE-INSTATED HERBICIDE APPLICATIONS where ROAD-SIDES ARE OVER-RUN WITH WEEDS, especially with European Buckthorn.
The ENTIRE Province of ONTARIO is INFESTED with BED-BUGS since many of the most effective insecticides against this indoor insect are PROHIBITED.
The Province of ONTARIO became known as « The Dandelion Province » since it was OVER-RUN with Dandelions because the SAFEST and MOST EFFECTIVE herbicides for controlling this broad-leaved weed were ARBITRARILY PROHIBITED.
The ENTIRE Province of ONTARIO is COVERED with ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGENS, originating from grasses, ragweed and goldenrod that were once controlled by now PROHIBITED products ― seasonal allergy sufferers are now, MORE THAN EVER, sniffling, sneezing, and coughing.
The University of Guelph, that at one time was the proud epicentre of the Turfgrass Maintenance Industry, has been reduced to recommending HAND-WEEDING as an alternative to conventional herbicides, thereby DEVALORIZING the professional labour force of the Lawn Care Industry into a group of mere COTTON-PICKING NIGGARS.
Ultimately, the Gideon Forman’s LEGACY of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in the Province of Ontario is …
… allergens, bed-bugs, cotton-picking, dandelion, death, destroyed businesses, dying trees, garbage dumps, and unemployment.
The SAME fate awaits all of Western Canada.
WILLIAM H. GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G
NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry.
NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT 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 the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.
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.
We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOUR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.
HUJE are enviro-lunatics, anti-pesticide activists, and lawn-haters, who particularly DESPISE the golf industry.
There is NO RECOURSE but LITIGATION against these HUJE.
Another RECOURSE is to SEEK the CANCELLATION of GOVERNMENT GRANTS and REVOCATION of the TAX EXEMPT STATUS of their organizations.
HUJE should Get OFF Our grASS, and they should Roast In Hell.
NORAHG manages the Library Force Of Nature Reports and References, which is a VAST ARCHIVE of DOCUMENTS, AUDIO CLIPS, and VIDEOS on ALL Anti Pesticide Terrorist Acts of Subversion.
The purpose of this ARCHIVE is to provide information that will lead to a SUCCESSFUL LITIGATION against Anti-Pesticide Vermin.
All names, statements, activities, and affiliations have been ARCHIVED for the intention of eventual CRIMINAL CHARGES.
When CRIMINAL CHARGES for FRAUD and CONSPIRACY are laid, legal experts say that there is sufficient information to lead to a SUCCESSFUL PROSECUTION !
