CALLS FOR ACTION ON
COSMETIC PESTICIDE BAN
TO PROTECT PUBLIC HEALTH

The Canadian Cancer Society B.C. and Yukon (CCS BCY) is call-
ing on the provincial government to accelerate its plans and initiate
a defined and timely public consultation on the use of cosmetic
chemical pesticides to protect public health and the environment by
the end of this year.

" We have waited long enough for the provincial government


to act on this public health threat, " says Barbara Kaminsky,
CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society BC and Yukon. " We are
not asking the BC government to lead this initiative. All
they need to do is follow in the footsteps of Ontario, Quebec
and the Union of BC Municipalities."
In the August 2009 Speech from the Throne, the B.C. government
made a commitment to initiate public consultation regarding new
statutory protections to safeguard the environment from cosmetic
chemical pesticides.

" It is important that the consultations begin as soon as pos-


sible and not go on for a long period of time," says Kamin-
sky. " Most important of all; however, is that the province
take strong and immediate action once the consultations
have occurred."

Cosmetic pesticides are used to improve the appearance of lawns


and gardens by controlling unwanted weeds and plants. They can
contain toxic chemicals that are cancer–causing. [ WRONG ! ] When
pesticides are used in this way, it is referred to as cosmetic (non–
essential) use of pesticides.

" Research demonstrates a growing link between pesticides


and an increase risk of cancer – particularly in children,"
says Kaminsky. [ WRONG ! ] "There is also overwhelming public
support for a ban on the sale of cosmetic chemical pesti-
cides, and that is why we need the BC government to act: it
has the authority to restrict the sale of pesticides and pro-
tect all British Columbians from exposure to cosmetic chemi-
cal pesticides. The time to fight for cancer prevention is
now." [ WRONG ! THERE IS NO IMMINENT THREAT OF CANCER ! ]

More than 20 BC municipalities have adopted bylaws banning cos-


metic pesticides, including Kelowna, Victoria, Maple Ridge,
Vancouver, Whistler, Courtney, West and North Vancouver.
The City of Richmond just adopted its bylaw last week and the re-
cently City of Surrey initiated a special trial.

" The number of B.C. municipalities with bylaws is growing


and more are expected to take action in the coming months,"
says Kaminsky. " However, this is creating a patchwork sys-
tem of uneven by–laws. A provincial ban would standardize
a patchwork of municipal laws."

In addition to calling for provincial action today, the CCS published


a list of harmful chemical ingredients common in pesticides at
www.cancer/bc.ca and advises consumers to avoid products that
have these ingredients.

In the coming weeks, the CCS BCY will begin asking retailers who
have not voluntarily agreed to stop selling chemical cosmetic pesti-
cides, to adopt policies to do so.

" With an increasing number of viable, non–toxic alterna-


tives, [ WRONG ! ] there is no longer a need to use cosmetic pes-
ticides to enhance the look of lawns and gardens," says
Kaminsky. " Pesticide use should only be considered as a
last resort to manage pests that may affect our health,
safety or food supply, and exposure should be reduced to
the lowest possible level."

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community–based or-


ganization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer

THE WHOLE TRUTH
FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE
FORCE OF N ATURE

ENVIRO–TERROR AND
CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY !

Canadian Cancer Society is a national community–based organiza-


tion of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and
the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.

 WARNING : Canadian Cancer Society is also a RADICAL MILI-


TANT ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION that seeks to
influence the public, government officials, and media, in matters of
politicized science and environmental public policy.

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society has conspired to seek the


NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS prohibition of FEDER-
ALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and TOTALLY IRREPLACE-
ABLE pest control products. Both in the Professional Lawn Care
Industry and the Agriculture Industry.

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society has also set its sights on the
Golf Industry !
√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society DOES NOT use sound science
in its criticism of pest control products. Canadian Cancer Society
frequently is only able to provide information based upon JUNK
SCIENCE instead of SOUND SCIENCE !

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society, through its promotional litera-


ture, continues to insist there is a link between pest control prod-
ucts and cancer, despite the fact that American Cancer Society does
not share the same viewpoint.

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society is a greedy 135,000,000 dollar


per year business that needs to attract MORE MONEY by CON-
COCTING NON–EXISTENT ISSUES, such as the so–called danger of
pest control products.
√ OBSERVATION : Furthermore, as a publicly–funded organiza-
tion, influencing public policy to prohibit pest control products is
clearly and ethically beyond the mandate of Canadian Cancer Soci-
ety.

 WARNING : The GOLF INDUSTRY must terminate all relation-


ships with environmental organizations like Canadian Cancer Soci-
ety, World Wildlife Fund, and others, and suspend all related chari-
table tournaments that provide financial donations and support to
these organizations.

√ FACT : NOT A SINGLE PERSON within Canadian Cancer Society


has ANY recognized expertise, training, or background, in matters
concerning PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS !

√ FACT : NO ONE in Canadian Cancer Society is a scientist or a


researcher with credentials in the fields of PEST CONTROL PROD-
UCTS or TURF MANAGEMENT !
√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society has VAST EXPERTISE in ac-
cumulating MILLIONS of dollars by alarming the public about the
so–called danger of pest control products.

 COMMENT : Perhaps the health of the public may be better


served if all the resources of Canadian Cancer Society and other en-
vironmental organizations, currently focused on the prohibition of
FEDERALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and TOTALLY IRRE-
PLACEABLE pest control products, were redirected towards improv-
ing the lifestyle choices of the population, such as diet and exercise.

INSTEAD, CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY HAS PREFERRED TO


CONSPIRE WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS TO PROHIBIT THE USE
O F FEDERALLY LEGAL, S CIENT IFICA LLY SAFE, A N D
TOTALL Y IRREPLACEABLE P E S T C O N T R O L P R O D U C T S .

 WARNING : The GOLF INDUSTRY


must terminate all relationships with
environmental organizations like Ca-
nadian Cancer Society, World Wildlife
Fund, and others, and suspend all re-
lated charitable tournaments that
provide financial donations and sup-
port to these organizations.
√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society also uses the millions that it
collects to pay « hired guns » a substantial amount of money to in-
timidate and coerce municipalities to conspire to prohibit FEDER-
ALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and TOTALLY IRREPLACE-
ABLE pest control products. Absolutely none of these « hired
guns » have any expertise in matters pertaining to pest control
products.

CAN ADIAN CANCER SOCIETY T AR GETS


THE GR EEN SPACE INDUSTRY !

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society has targeted both the Profes-


sional Lawn Care Industry and the Agriculture Industry.

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society has also set its sights on anni-
hilating the Golf Industry.

√ FACT : In 2007, Canadian Cancer Society issued a statement


that brought it very close to asking for a prohibition of pest control
products used in the Golf Industry. –

<< Position Statement of


Canadian Cancer Society :

● The Canadian Cancer Society is very concerned


about the use of potential carcinogens for the
purposes of enhancing the appearance of lawns and
gardens, as well as parks, recreational facilities,
and golf courses.
● We base this concern on the conclusions of the
International Agency for Research on Cancer, which
state that some substances used in pesticides are
classified as known, probable, or possible carcino-
gens. >>

√ FACT : In 2009, Canadian Cancer Society with its allies finally


made a commitment to prohibit pest control products in the Golf
Industry.

On April 20th, 2009, the British Columbia Suzuki Enviro–Terror Al-


liances of health and environmental organizations [ that includes
Canadian Cancer Society, David Suzuki Foundation, Canadian As-
sociation of Physicians for the Environment, and Toxic Free
Canada ] recommended provincial legislation that :

1. Bans the use and sale of pesticides used to im-


prove the appearance of lawns and gardens, includ-
ing a requirement for golf courses to phase out
pesticides.

2. Allows exemptions only when necessary to pro-


tect public health and safety.

3. Allows municipalities to enact and enforce by-


laws that are more restrictive of pesticide use
than the provincial law.

4. Includes a 'white list' of low–risk pesticides


that are permitted on lawns and gardens to pro-
mote public awareness
ULTIMATELY ―

 WARNING : RADICAL Enviro–Organizations like Canadian Can-


cer Society will drive the Green Space Industry (including the Golf
Industry) into BANKRUPTCY, BUSINESS FAILURE, UNEMPLOY-
MENT, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION !

 WARNING : Canadian Cancer Society and its allies have the


money and the power to do this !

GREED AND HYPOCRISY

Every year, Van Treight Nursery on Vancouver Island harvests 18


million DAFFODIL blooms on 60 hectares. These flowers are sold in
local stores and transported throughout North America, with many
going to the Canadian Cancer Society's annual spring awareness
campaign.
It is common knowledge that ALL the Daffodils grown at Van
Treight Nursery for the Canadian Cancer Society require the use of
pest control products like 2,4–D and Roundup.

This is an example of Canadian Cancer Society Greed and Hypoc-


risy. Since the flowers are a HUGE source of income for these En-
viro–Basterds, of course they have
NO objection to the use of pest con-
trol products.
Canadian Cancer Society is a
bottomless pits of GREED !

√ FACT : The pest control products used for producing the DAF-
FODILS sold by Canadian Cancer Society are FEDERALLY LEGAL,
SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, AND TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE !

√ FACT : The sale of DAFFODILS treated with pest control prod-


ucts is a means of making Canadian Cancer Society RICH !

 WARNING : Canadian Cancer So-


ciety is operated by GREEDY RADI-
CAL Environmental Terrorists and
Enviro–Maniacs.
What can the
Green Space Industry
do about Canadian
Cancer Society ?!?!

√ FACT : The Green Space Industry intends to lay charges of


fraud against prohibitionist Environmental Terror Organizations
and other culprits !

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society is now worried about litigation


for its involvement in the conspiracy to prohibit FEDERALLY LE-
GAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE pest
control products.

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society is now distancing itself from


the disgraceful and inaccurate report originating from Ontario Col-
lege of Family Physicians.

√ FACT : Canadian Cancer Society is now sanitizing its web sites


in order to try to squirm away from the spotlight. (Too late ! We
have downloaded and copied EVERYTHING !)

What else can the


Green Space Industry
do about Canadian
Cancer Society ?!?!

 WARNING : Everybody must stop making donations to Cana-


dian Cancer Society !
 WARNING : In particular, the Golf Industry must terminate all
relationships with prohibitionist environmental organizations like
Canadian Cancer Society, as well as World Wildlife Fund, and oth-
ers, and suspend all related charitable tournaments that provide fi-
nancial donations and support to these organizations.

Remember ―

This MILLIONAIRE Environmental Organization has conspired na-


tionally to prohibit FEDERALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE,
and TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE pest control products.

Canadian Cancer Society may need more millions in its greedy cof-
fers to fight legitimate charges of FRAUD in court ! ☺

Charitable donations will only help Canadian Cancer Society cul-


prits stay out of jail ! ☺

Canadian Cancer Society also uses the millions that it collects to


pay « hired guns » a substantial amount of money to intimidate
and coerce municipalities to conspire to prohibit FEDERALLY LE-
GAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE pest
control products. Absolutely none of these « hired guns » has any
expertise in matters pertaining to pest control products.

Anyhow ―

Please give generously to Canadian Cancer Society !

Obviously, giving to Canadian Cancer Society is money well–spent !



( i.e. the Town of Hudson, Quebec. ) For FIFTEEN YEARS, the strategies designed
and implemented by Mr. Gathercole and his colleagues guaranteed the control of
Enviro–Terror for the Entire Green Space Industry across Canada. Although he can
be accused of being ANTI–ENVIRONMENT–MOVEMENT, he is, in fact, sim-
ply a strong advocate FOR the GREEN SPACE INDUSTRY, from an INDE-
PENDENT PERSPECTIVE. However, this position has not precluded him from
criticizing the Green Space Industry itself. Nonetheless, his vast knowledge of our
long journey with environmental issues is UNDENIABLE. ( Hopefully ! )
