  1. If City of Castlegar decides to go Pesticide-Free, then Municipal Officials had better get used to CRAWLING ON THEIR HAND AND KNEES FOR WEED-PICKING LIKE COTTON-PICKERS.  No one wants this #@!!% nonsense of Manual Weed Picking just because there is an ARBITRARY PESTICIDE BAN !  If a small minority of highly-motivated residents want to spend 40 to 50 hours plus per week weeding their properties, that’s their prerogative.  IMPOSING that life-style on everyone else for no good reason IS NOT.  Manual Weed Picking is TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE.  http://wp.me/P1jq40-4Ml   It is impossible for home-owners or maintenance professionals to keep their properties weed-free and beautiful by using practices like weed-pulling, mowing height, and aeration.  Without conventional pest control products, playing surfaces become thin and yellow, and over-run with weeds and infested with insects, resulting in the dismal destruction of safe turf playing surfaces and turning them into garbage dumps.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-44g   http://wp.me/P1jq40-4z3  Who wants to live in #@!!% pest-infested garbage dumps just because a small group of activists seek to impose needless pesticide bans ?!?!  PESTICIDE BANS ARE A FARCE.  Residents are obtaining products either from other provinces, or mostly from across the border in the United States, or through the Internet.  http://wp.me/p1jq40-4mS  It is NOT illegal to own or possess these products, only to apply them.  So, forget about Manual Weed Picking just like a COTTON-PICKER.    WILLIAM H.
