FUCILE, Wendy

Fucile is an Enviro–Maniac–Activist who SUPPORTS the PROHIBITION


on the use of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

Fucile has also served as Board Member, Canadian Nurses Association;


and Director, Trent / Fleming School of Nursing.

Fucile has operated as Leader / Spokesperson for the following Envi-


ronmental–Terror–Organization that CONSPIRED in the Province of
Ontario to PROHIBIT pest control products that are FEDERALLY LEGAL,
SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE ―

● Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario ( RNAO )

Neither Fucile, nor any of her Enviro–Maniac co–conspirators in RNAO,


have ANY recognized expertise, training or background in matters con-
cerning pest control products. Consequently, their opinions are TO-
TALLY VALUELESS and UTTERLY WORTHLESS in matters concerning
pest control products. They are NOT competent to give advice.

On April 22nd, 2008, Fucile said ―

<< The Pr e mie r of Ont ar io is to be co ngr at ulat e d f o r

On June 18th, 2008, Fucile’s organization said ―

Fucile ―

Thank you, Mr. Chair, ladies and gen tl emen of the commi ttee, we
very much appreciate the opportunity to meet with you today.

My name is Wendy Fucile, and I am the president of the R EGISTERED


N URSES ' A SSOCIATION OF O NTARIO , RNAO, the provincial association for
registered nurses in Ontario.

RNAO members prac tise in all roles and sectors across the province.
Our mandate is to advocate for healthy public policy and for the
role of registered nurses in enhancing t he health of all of Ontario's
citizens.

We welcome this opportunity to present our views to the Standing


Committee on Soci al Policy on O ntar io's Bill 64, An Ac t to amend the
Pesticides Act to PROHIBIT THE USE AND SALE OF PESTICIDES that may be
used for COSMETIC purposes.

Bill 64 has the potent ial to be a n impor tant step in the right di rec-
tion, but we’re not popping the champagne corks yet.

RNAO and its members have been worki n g hard to achieve protection
against NON – ESSENTIAL use of pesticides across this province for many
years.

We were delighted to attend Premier McGuinty's press conference to


introduce this i mportan t legislation, and we were especially pleased
that during that a nnouncement the Premier stated unequivocally
that « Ontario 's legislation would serve as a floor and not as a ceil-
ing » .

We were, therefore, most distressed when this statement was later


contradic ted by Minister Gerretsen's offi ce.

The bill has some excellent features that could put Ontario at the
forefron t of protect ion of the public AGAINST PESTICIDES .

W E ARE PLEASED THAT THE BILL WILL BAN THE USE AND SALE OF PESTICIDES FOR
COSMETIC PURPOSES , and will cover residential, industrial, commer-
cial, inst itutional, municipal and provincial properties, in cluding
rural residential properties.
R E G I S T ER ED N U R S E S ’ A S S O C I A T I O N O F O N T A R I O
ST R ONG L Y SU PPOR T S T H E BAN
O N T H E U S E AN D S A L E OF P E S T I C I D E S
F O R C O S M ET I C P UR P O S E S

We are also very pleased that the Minister of the Environment an-
nounced that the implementat ion perio d would be swift, w ith the
ban to be in effect for the 200 9 growin g season.

We do, however, have serious concerns about certain features of the


bill in its proposed form, a nd we w ill work to fur ther necessary
changes to fix those problems.

Specifically, as presently wr itten, the bill would empower the gov-


ernment to in troduce other exemptions by regulation.

This, in our view, is a dangerous and unnecessary provision that


could put current or future cabinets un der pressure from industry,
and undermine the intent of the legislat ion.

Indeed, the lawn care industry organi zation, La ndscape Ontar io,
makes clear in its briefin g note on Bill 64 that it would seek exemp-
tions for so–called weed and insect infes tations.

These exemptions make implementing pesticide legislation more


costly and diffi cult, and represent loopholes to continue business as
usual.

The bill, as presently written, would take away from munic ipalities
the right to exceed the provincial standa rd in pesticide protection.

This pre–emption strategy has been used with great success by the
pesticide industry in the US, and we do not want to see it used
here.

B E L I E F T H AT E X EM P T I O N S S H O U LD B E L I M I T E D
TO PUBLIC HEALTH PURPOSES

RNAO is most concerned w ith this, becau se MUNICIPALITIES HAVE ALWAYS


HAD A LEADERSHIP ROLE IN PESTICIDE AND TOXIC CHEMICAL MANAGEMENT , and
because municipalities are in a good position to respond to loca l
health issues.

Some existing municipal protections ― for example, banned uses of


pesticides ― could be rolled back with the legislation, as currently
writ ten.

T HE BILL WOULD EXEMPT GOLF COURSES , WHICH IS INCONSISTENT WITH RNAO' S


BELIEF THAT EXEMPTIONS SHOULD BE LIMITED TO PUBLIC HEALTH PURPOSES .

The government has released a list of pesticides that could be


banned from use or sale for cosmetic purposes.

This list does not include all pesticides of concern; for example,
Roundup.

An inclusion list of allowed minimally toxic substances would be a


preferable approach.

A PRECAUTIONARY APPROACH is essential w hen determining which sub-


stances would be allowed on that list.

RNAO is also seeking assurance that the government will provide the
needed resources to implement the new legislation, including fund-
ing for education and enforcemen t.

To summarize our recommendations, RNAO STRONGLY SUPPORTS THE


BAN ON THE USE AND SALE OF PESTICIDES FOR COSMETIC PURPOSES .
The Myth of the Twisted–Enviro–Version
of the So–Called Precautionary Principle

Description of the Twisted Principle

Environmental–Terror–Organizations conspire towards NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PRO-


HIBITION of conventional pest control products that are FEDERALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE,
TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE, and ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE

They do so by twisting terms like « Precautionary Principle » !

The TWISTED–ENVIRO–VERSION of « Precautionary Principle » states that if an action or policy might


threaten to human health or the environment, precautionary measures should be taken even if the
cause–and–effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. Presumably, the burden of proof
falls on those IGNORANT and LUNATIC Enviro–Maniac–Activists who would advocate taking the action.

√ FACT : The use of pest control products in the urban landscape DOES NOT qualify for considera-
tion under the « Precautionary Principle ».

√ FACT : NOT A SINGLE PERSON in the Environmental–Terror–Movement has ANY recognized ex-
pertise, training, or background, in matters concerning pest control products, and they are unqualified
to comment upon the application of the « Precautionary Principle » !

History of the Twisted Principle

For years, the Enviro–Terror–Movement has UNOFFICIALLY CONCOCTED its own Twisted–Enviro–
Version of the « Precautionary Principle », which is actually called the « Wingspread Statement » ―

< < Wh en an a ct i vi t y r a i ses t h r ea t s of h a r m t o hu m a n h ea l t h or t h e en v ir on m ent ,


p r eca u t i on a r y m ea su r es sh ou l d b e t a k en ev en i f som e ca u se a n d effect r el a t i on -
sh i p s a r e n ot fu l l y est a b l i sh ed s ci en t i fi ca l l y . > >

This version has been INTERNATIONALLY DISCREDITED.

The Valid Version of the Principle

The OFFICIAL « Precautionary Principle » has been defined by the United Nations Conference on Envi-
ronment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.

< < Wh er e t h er e a r e t h r ea t s of ser i ou s or i r r ev er si b l e d a m a g e, l a ck of fu l l sci en -


t i fi c cer t a i n t y sh a l l n ot b e u sed a s a r ea son for p ost p on i n g cost – effect i v e m ea s-
u r es t o p r ev en t en v i r on m en ta l d eg r a d a t i on . > >

Conventional pest control products used by the Green Space Industry ARE NOT a threat for serious
and irreversible damage to health and the environment.
The Wisdom of Solomon

The « Precautionary Principle » has been well explained by DR. KEITH SOLOMON, Professor at the
Centre for Toxicology and Department of Environmental Biology, University of Guelph, and Director,
Canadian Network of Toxicology Centres ―

According to DR. SOLOMON ―

< < La n d sca p e a n d g a r d en u se of p e st con t r ol p r od u ct s DO ES NO T q u a l i fy for con -

The Wisdom of British House of Commons Committee

The « Precautionary Principle » has also been explained by the prestigious British House of Commons
Select Committee on Science and Technology, which has stated that ―

< < [ . . . ] t h e t er m « P r eca u t i on a ry Pr i n ci pl e » SH OU LD NO T b e u sed , a n d

The Truth about the Twisted–Enviro–Version

The Twisted–Enviro–Version of the « Precautionary Principle » is simply another MALICIOUS WEAPON


OF ULTIMATE TERROR concocted by Enviro–Maniac–Activists.

Environmental–Terrorists DO NOT care about valid principles, but simply want to ANNIHILATE the
Green Space Industry across Canada by imposing NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS prohibi-
tion.

Environmental–Terrorists will eventually use the same the Twisted–Enviro–Version of the « Precau-
tionary Principle » to DESTROY the HATED Golf Industry as well !

√ FACT : Conventional pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE ! Overall, when they are
used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

√ FACT : The use of pest control products to enhance the Urban Landscape is GOOD for the envi-
ronment.
In January 2010, the Green Space Industry outlined the LIST OF CHARGES against the
Government of Ontario and the Ministry of the Environment.

Additionally, individual Enviro–Maniac members of Environmental–Terror–Organizations


also faced FRAUD CHARGES under the Canadian Criminal Code.

The LEGAL CHALLENGE was organized by Jeffrey P. Lowes and M–REP Communications.

Summary of alleged offences ―

● 133 charges and 29 culprits


● Conspiring to prevent the supply of approved pest control products
● Defrauding access to products
● Impeding access to approved pest control products
● Misleading with peer–reviewed assessments, reports, and studies
● Presenting false and misleading information
● Undermining the people and companies in Green Space Industry.

By August 2010, M–REP Communications commenced CIVIL ACTION to recover the HOR-
RENDOUS LOSSES caused by the PROHIBITION CONSPIRACY.

The principal Environmental–Terror–Organizations that CONSPIRED with Government Offi-


cials to impose prohibition ―

● Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE )


● Canadian Cancer Society ( CCS )
● Canadian Environmental Law Association ( CELA )
● Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario ( CHEO )
● David Suzuki Foundation
● Ecojustice Canada
● Environmental Defence
● Ontario College of Family Physicians ( OCFP )
● Ontario Medical Association ( OMA ) ― Pediatrics Section
● Ontario Public Health Association ( OPHA )
● Organic Landscape Alliance ( OLA )
● Coalition For Pesticide Reform Ontario
● Prevent Cancer Now
● Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario ( RNAO )
● The Learning Disabilities Association of Canada ( LDAC ).
Force Of Nature presents THE WHOLE TRUTH FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE from National Organization Responding Against HUJE
that seek to harm the Green Space Industry (NORAHG). It is a series of Reports destined for the Green Space Industry, the Environmental
Terror Movement, Governments, and the Media, nationwide across Canada, the United States, and overseas. The information presented in
Force Of Nature has been developed for the education and entertainment of the reader by providing a sequence of historical events WITH
COMMENTARY. The neutrality of these Reports might be disputed. Don’t thank us. It’s a public service. And we are glad to do it.

HUJE are identified on the basis of their statements, activities, affiliations, and whereabouts. Even though each Enviro Maniac Culprit is a
misguided adversary, each still deserves our respect. The use of the terms Maniac, Culprit, Terrorist, or Basterd are not accusations of any
legal wrong doing. Force Of Nature is simply holding Enviro Maniac Activists accountable for conspiring to change public policies that TER-
RORIZE, HARM, and THREATEN the Green Space Industry.

HUJE is a term used to describe Enviro Maniac Activists that routinely concoct FEAR MONGERING, FRAUDULENT LIES, MISCONCEPTIONS,
COERCION, THREATS, DECEPTIONS, TERROR, and PARANOID CONSPIRACIES that are DESIGNED to SCAM and DECEIVE the public into
believing there is some NON–EXISTENT danger with conventional pest control products. HUJE also SCAM and DECEIVE Government Offi-
cials into the NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS CONSPIRACY to PROHIBIT conventional pest control products that are FEDERALLY
LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE, and ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE.

HUJE have created LOSS OF REVENUES, BUSINESS FAILURES, BANKRUPTCY, and UNEMPLOYMENT, inflicting DESPAIR and DESTITUTION
for THOUSANDS of hapless victims throughout the Green Space Industry. The DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE of Maniac Culprit Terrorist Bas-
terd HUJE is viewed as a form of TERROR, HARM, and THREAT against the Green Space Industry.

This Report provides NO guarantee regarding accuracy or completeness. In no event shall Force Of Nature be liable for any incidental or
consequential damages, lost profits, or any indirect damages. Force Of Nature is TOTALLY INDEPENDENT of any trade association or busi-
ness operating within the Green Space Industry. The events, characters, companies, and organizations, depicted in this Report are not al-
ways fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, may not be coincidental. All information, excerpts, and pictures contained

Force Of Nature, and its various incarnations, is the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues. Mr. Gathercole is a principal
FOUNDER of the Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry in BOTH Ontario and Quebec. He holds a degree in Horticulture from the UNI-
VERSITY OF GUELPH, and another pure and applied science degree from McGILL UNIVERSITY. He has worked in virtually all aspects of the
Green Space Industry, including GOLF, PROFESSIONAL LAWN CARE, and CHEMICAL INDUSTRY, and has served in environmental compli-
ance, government negotiations, public affairs, and workplace safety. Mr. Gathercole has supervised, consulted, programmed, and/or over-
seen the successful and safe execution of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of pest control applications in the urban landscape. He has trained,
instructed, and consulted with THOUSANDS of turf managers and technicians. Mr. Gathercole has also been an agricultural agronomist.
For many years, Mr. Gathercole was a contributing columnist for TURF & Recreation Magazine, Canada’s Turf and Grounds Maintenance Au-
thority.

Mr. Gathercole and his colleagues have followed the evolution of ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM for over a quarter century. For FIFTEEN
YEARS, the strategies designed and implemented by Mr. Gathercole and his colleagues guaranteed the control of the VERMIN OF ENVI-
RONMENTAL TERROR for the entire Modern Green Space Industry across Canada. Their involvement in Environmental Issues reached a
fevered pitch in the 1990s, when he orchestrated, with his colleagues, legal action against the Forces of Environmental Evil in the Town of
Hudson, Quebec.

Today, Mr. Gathercole is the ONLY TRUE RELIABLE WITNESS of the Hudson Affair. Mr. Gathercole is personally credited for crafting the
Golf Industry Exception Status that endures to this day. He is also the creator of the signs that are now used for posting after application.
His vast knowledge of our long journey with Environmental Issues is UNDENIABLE ― hopefully ! Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although
his name continues to appear as FOUNDER of Force Of Nature.
