Village Of Lumby Self-Imposes A Limited Ban Against Pest Control Products
May 23rd, 2014
Lumby Morning Star
Village Of Lumby, British Columbia
( Located Near City Of Vernon )
Selected And Adapted Excerpts
Lumby is a small community of over 1,700 located at the north-east corner of the Okanagan Valley, near the City of Vernon, in British Columbia.
It is mainly a logging, manufacturing, and agricultural community.
Village of Lumby RECKLESSLY AND ARBITRARILY IMPOSED PROHIBITION against CONVENTIONAL pest control products used on its PUBLIC PROPERTIES.
There may be MORE DANDELIONS popping up in Lumby.
Because of PROHIBITION, Lumby will LOSE ITS GREENS SPACES.
However, businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry have been GRANTED AN EXCEPTION STATUS.
And, RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY OWNERS ARE NOT AFFECTED.
The village IMPOSED A LIMITED BAN against products FOR WEED CONTROL in all the parks and public grounds it is responsible for.
According to Mayor Kevin Acton ―
For the basic principle of cosmetics, we won’t use [ safe and effective conventional pest control products ] in our own parks.
Although pest control products may need to be used if there’s an ant hill, thistles or other harmful issue.
Lumby’s Mayor Kevin Acton says there is evidence on both sides. [ FALSE ! ]
Lumby’s decision to PROHIBIT pest control products was based upon MIS-INFORMATION AND DECEPTION by a Lunatic-Lobbyist PAID-FOR-PROFIT by Canadian Cancer Society.
[ Canadian Cancer Society is an anti-pesticide organization that illegally interfered in partisan politics and public policy in Lumby, and hence, is in direct violation of taxation laws ― see below for NORAHG RESPONSE on this issue. ]
In Lumby and across the nation, Canadian Cancer Society SQUANDERS AND MISAPPROPRIATES ITS DONATION MONEY ON ANTI-PESTICIDE CAMPAIGNS. CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE CLICK HERE
Through these COSTLY, SUBVERSIVE, AND ILLEGAL ANTI-PESTICIDE CAMAPAIGNS, Cancer-Lunatic-Lobbyists have CONCOCTED THE IMAGINARY DANGER about some kind of negative health effects regarding the use of pest control products.
On May 5th, 2014, a Cancer-Lunatic-Lobbyist MIS-INFORMED AND DECEIVED Lumby’s City Council about issues concerning pest control products.
On May 5th, 2014, Jerilynn Maki from Canadian Cancer Society PRESENTED MIS-INFORMATION with the objective to COERCE, ALARM, and INTIMIDATE Lumby’s City Council into a decision to PROHIBIT against pest control products.
Maki advised Lumby’s City Council that there have been over 100 STUDIES that have linked pesticide use to increased cancers in adults and children, with children being at a greater risk. [ WRONG ! ]
Maki MIS-INFORMED AND DECEIVED Lumby’s City Council about these 100 STUDIES.
Maki FAILED TO EXPLAIN is that her INFAMOUS 100 STUDIES are ALL EPIDEMIOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONAL STUDIES WITH VERY WEAK LINKS between pesticides and disease.
Health Canada has estimated that ABOUT 23 MILLION PAGES OF SCIENTIFIC STUDIES are used to support the decisions made about pest control products.
International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) stated that VERY FEW currently available pesticides are ESTABLISHED EXPERIMENTAL CARCINOGENS, and NONE is an established HUMAN CARCINOGEN ― studies in humans have FAILED TO PROVIDE CONVINCING EVIDENCE of an increased risk, even in heavily exposed groups.
Presentations by Cancer-Lunatic-Lobbyists like Maki are SHORT ON FACTS AND REPLETE WITH MIS-INFORMATION ― and is thus MUCH WORSE THAN NO PRESENTATION AT ALL.
Statements from Maki and Canadian Cancer Society COULD BE TRUE if they did not just CHERRY-PICK WEAK EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES, and PRETEND that this is the ONLY evidence that is available. CLICK HERE CLICK HERE
Lumby’s Mayor Acton asked Maki if she had HARD FACTS linking cancer to pest control products.
Maki advised that she would provide that information to Lumby’s City Council within the next few days, as she did not [ conveniently ] have it with her. [ In other words, she had SQUAT ! ]
Maki MIS-INFORMED AND DECEIVED Lumby’s City Council about cancer.
PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS DO NOT CAUSE CANCER.
If some Cancer-Lunatic-Lobbyists like Maki were not so SCIENTIFICALLY ILLITERATE, they would know that scientific research shows that, as reported through EPA’s and Health Canada’s VAST TOXICOLOGY DATABASE, NO HARM WILL OCCUR when pest control products are applied properly in the Urban Landscape.
ALL pest control products have been evaluated for their CARCINOGENIC POTENTIAL. CLICK HERE
Scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and DO NOT CAUSE CANCER.
Pest control products causing cancer IS A MYTH. CLICK HERE
Furthermore, Canadian Cancer Society has officially and publicly stated repeatedly that SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH DOES NOT PROVIDE A CONCLUSIVE LINK BETWEEN PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS AND CANCER, on the following dates • August 21st, 2008 • November 2nd, 2009 • March 8th, 2010 • June 9th, 2012 • January 29th, 2013.

Additionally, Maki advised that currently the Province of British Columbia is DRAGGING ITS FEET on making sure the province becomes a pesticide free zone. [ WRONG ! ]
Again, Maki MIS-INFORMED AND DECEIVED Lumby’s City Council concerning British Columbia.
On May 17th, 2012, British Columbia’s Special Committee On Cosmetic Pesticides STOPPED THE TREND towards NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION.
The Special Committee announced that it DID NOT RECOMMEND PROHIBITION against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape. The Committee made THE RIGHT CHOICE, and deserves CONGRATULATION. CLICK HERE
Across the nation, Canadian Cancer Society has SQUANDERED AND MISAPPROPRIATED up to 5,000,000 DOLLARS on SUBVERSIVE and PARTISAN Anti-Pesticide CONSPIRACIES.
Canadian Cancer Society FALSELY ALLEGES having UNDISCLOSED, NON-EXISTENT AND UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE about the safety of pest control products. Health Canada, and NOT Canadian Cancer Society, has THE ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE on the subject of pest control products.
Not surprisingly, NOT A SINGLE PERSON within Canadian Cancer Society, including Maki, has ANY recognized expertise, training or background in matters concerning pest control products.
Canadian Cancer Society is RIDICULOUSLY IMPLYING that its NON-EXPERT ASSESSMENT is somehow being withheld from Health Canada and EVERY other regulatory agency in the world. CLICK HERE
A recent POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) CONFIRMED that the VAST MAJORITY of residents in British Columbia are OPPOSED to the PROHIBITION of conventional pest control products, and they actually FAVOUR the continued use of these products around their homes and in public green spaces.

Clearly, Maki REPEATEDLY MIS-INFORMED AND DECEIVED Lumby’s City Council.
We must STOP PROHIBITION in Lumby, whatever the cost may be.
CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY VIOLATES TAXATION LAWS IN LUMBY
Lumby’s self-imposed limited prohibition against conventional pest control products is not necessary and not justified because strict regulations based on scientific research already protect children, adults, and the environment. Prohibition is somehow validated by anti-pesticide lobbying-organizations, like Canadian Cancer Society, that merely concocts myths about conventional products. http://wp.me/P1jq40-3jm When it comes to the safety and appearance of green spaces, the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products should be a no-brainer. Anti-pesticide prohibition leads to the catastrophic problems of weed invasion and insect infestation. It will be impossible for Lumby to keep its properties safe and attractive by using so-called green alternative pesticides and practices. http://wp.me/P1jq40-24g There are NO viable, efficacious, economical, or low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products. Green alternative pesticides are bogus and dismal failures ― they do not work and they are not innovative products. http://wp.me/P1jq40-24g By self-imposing prohibition against pest control products, Lumby municipal employees had better get used to crawling on their hand and knees for weed-picking like cotton-pickers. Furthermore, manual weed picking will be totally ineffective. http://wp.me/p1jq40-4ml As experienced in other jurisdictions, without conventional pest control products, Lumby’s green spaces will become pest-infested dangerous garbage dumps. http://wp.me/P1jq40-44g http://wp.me/P1jq40-4z3 http://wp.me/p1jq40-7C4 The Lumby prohibition against is being self-imposed under the pretext of some unverifiable health effects alleged by Canadian Cancer Society. However, Canadian Cancer Society has officially and publicly stated repeatedly that scientific research does not provide a conclusive link between pest control products and cancer, on the following dates • August 21st, 2008 • November 2nd, 2009 • March 8th, 2010 • June 9th, 2012 • January 29th, 2013 http://wp.me/P1jq40-4qC Why is Canadian Cancer Society wasting Lumby’s time and resources on the issue of pest control products ? It is common knowledge that Canadian Cancer Society has no credible expertise. It is a fund-raising, profit-seeking, and lobbying organization, and it is not a science, research, or health organization. http://wp.me/P1jq40-1OW By conspiring to impose prohibition, Canadian Cancer Society profits from public donations and government grants, without paying a single penny in taxes. http://wp.me/p1jq40-1ie Observers have concluded that Canadian Cancer Society does not deserve any donations or support. Nor does it deserve any tax-exempt status. It is easy for Canadian Cancer Society to interfere in partisan politics and public policy when he has almost unlimited resources and millions of dollars available through public donations and government grants. Canadian Cancer Society’s non-profit charity status must be investigated and revoked. Even Greenpeace has lost its charity status in several jurisdictions, including Canada. greenpeace-loses-charity Canadian Cancer Society must suffer the scrutiny of the media and the spotlight of Canada Revenue Agency. Everyone must complain, complain, complain. The list of complaint channels has been archived on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site … http://wp.me/p1jq40-1pe It’s time to stop making donations to Canadian Cancer Society. Lumby is yet another example where Canadian Cancer Society has illegally interfered in partisan politics and public policy, and has violated of taxation laws. NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry.
