Pesticide Ban Failure – London, Ontario – The Dying Forest City Because of Prohibition – 2012 04 17
In September 2008, City of London IMPLEMENTED the PROHIBITION against pest control products under the PRETEXT of protecting health and environment.
London Government Officials estimated that enforcement would cost up to 300,000 DOLLARS PER YEAR, while an education campaign could cost 300,000 DOLLARS ― nearly 1 MILLION DOLLARS OVER THREE YEARS.
London CAPITULATED to Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatic Activists and their Terrorist Organizations, such as …
● Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( Gideon Forman )
● Coalition Against Pesticides in London ( Sean Hurley )
● Imagine London ( Samuel E. Trosow, University of Western Ontario )
● urban league of London ( Stephen Turner )
Samuel E. Trosow was a former American lawyer who operated for years at University of California at Berkeley, a nest of radical subversive activists ― in 2001, Trosow became a Government Official whose salary is paid by tax-payers at University of Western Ontario.
In 2009, the Province of Ontario itself PROHIBITED the sale and use of pest control products, and effectively NULLIFIED all city bans.
On April 22nd, 2009, the Government of Ontario IMPOSED the NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION against pest control products used by Municipal Governments and the Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry.
Both the municipal and provincial legislations were implemented despite the fact that the PROHIBITED pest control products were still HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC, and CAUSE NO HARM.
In 2012, London, or the former « Forest City », NEEDS TO KILL 96 PER CENT OF ITS ASH TREES because of LUNATIC ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION.
Observers have suggested that London now be called …
The City of the DEAD Forest
Or simply …
The Forest City with NO Trees
City of London is PESTICIDE-FREE with DEAD TREES.
Another demonstration of the FAILURE of LUNATIC-PROHIBITION.
The death of London’s trees is the DIRECT RESULT of PROHIBITION against convention pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.
On April 17th, 2012, London announced a stay of execution is coming for over 1,000 ash trees that were going to be « felled » or « culled » ( a.k.a. cut down and destroyed ).
It may be a brief one, however, as a committee seeks a report on its tree cull response to the Emerald Ash Borer and tries to understand why the nearby City of Oakville injects 40 per cent of its trees with Neem Oil to save them but London only injects 4 per cent with the so-called Green Alternative Pesticide.
In fact, the success of Neem Oil injection is MARGINAL, at best.
Sadly, those pest control products that COULD save London’s ash trees have all been ARBITRARILY PROHIBITED.
The bid for a moratorium for destroying the ash trees was made on April 16th, 2012, by residents who warned killing 96 per cent of ash trees will devalue private properties by $20 million across the city, while costing the city hundreds of thousands of unnecessary dollars.
So far, the loss of trees in London has led to a 300,000 DOLLARS LOSS OF PROPERTY VALUE, based on a conservative estimate of about 5,500 dollars as the amount a tree adds to the value of a property.
Ivan Listar, the city’s urban forester, said one in every 10 trees in London is an ash tree, and now underway is « the most aggressive tree planting program in history », to plant 3,000 trees in 2012.
The cost of planting thousands of ash trees may have been UNNECESSARY if conventional pest control products had NOT been ARBITRARILY PROHIBITED.
Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, the owners, employees, and families dependent on Professional Lawn Care businesses have faced TERROR, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION.
Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION has led to CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE for Professional Lawn Care companies, in the form of HORRIFIC FINES and BUSINESS FAILURES.
NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION led to the DESTRUCTION of the Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry.
The DEVASTATION of the Professional Lawn Care Industry was EXTENSIVE because there were NO valid economical alternatives to replace the prohibited products.
Consequently, Professional Lawn Care Companies were UNABLE to provide adequate weed and insect control, and were UNABLE to keep their customers satisfied.
Ontario Government Officials were OFFICIALLY WARNED about the CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE or SUN-SETTING that would result from PROHIBITION.
The Environmental Commissioner’s Report to the Ontario Legislative Assembly on October 6th, 2009, OFFICIALLY WARNED Government Officials about the SUN-SETTING CARNAGE of that would result from PROHIBITION ―
In the short-term, however, the ban may have SIGNIFICANT EFFECTS on the economic health or continued viability of many lawn care businesses, effectively SUN-SETTING components of an industry.
Because of PROHIBITION in Ontario, the Professional Lawn Care Industry LOST OVER 500,000,000 DOLLARS, with UP TO 12,500 UNEMPLOYED.
Because of PROHIBITION in Ontario, ONE-COMPANY-PER-WEEK DISAPPEARS INTO TOTAL OBLIVION.
