  1. Anti-pesticide prohibition is not necessary.  If/when Castlegar imposes an arbitrary anti-pesticide prohibition, it will have done so in defiance of Health Canada’s assessments proving that pest control products are scientifically-safe … a process that can take up to ten years and cost hundreds of millions of dollars.  Castlegar itself will not spend any serious money on the assessment of pest control products.  Besides, the major source of exposure to pest control products is from food supply, and not the urban landscape.  Prohibition is not necessary, and, in other jurisdictions, has led to catastrophic carnage such as business failures and unemployment, and even death.  In jurisdictions like Ontario, prohibition led to the death of an elderly man who was forced to hand-pull toxic noxious weeds.  Moreover, prohibition creates garbage dump green spaces since 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   Prohibition dooms children to suffer injuries with the creation of hazardous slipping and tripping conditions in sports turf.  Government officials are inclined to avoid being officially liable for all injuries.  With pest control products, children are kept safe from slipping and tripping injuries.  With pest control products, children will not be doomed with serious injuries.  Without pest control products, government officials become legally responsible for hazardous slipping and tripping conditions in sports turf that will threaten children with serious injuries.  Children need pest-free turf to avoid hurting themselves.  There are dozens of jurisdictions that have kept children safe by stopping or rescinding or limiting anti-pesticide prohibition, or by granting professional lawn care businesses with an exception status.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-2ha   Health Canada has the essential expertise on the subject of pest control products.  And not Castlegar, and not its anti-pesticide city councillors.  Anti-pesticide prohibition is not necessary because, overall, when pest control products are used properly, there are no harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !  WILLIAM H.
