R EVELSTOKE , B RITISH C OLUMBIA Revelstoke is a city in South–Eastern British Columbia, Canada.

Revelstoke is a city in South–Eastern British Columbia, Canada. There are three principal Environmental–Terror–Organizations that operate in Revelstoke ― Canadian Cancer Soci- ety, North Columbia Environmental Society, and Wildsight. The names of these organiza- tions may sound impressive, but, in fact, they locally represent a minuscule number of peo- ple.

ENVIRO–MANIAC–ACTIVISTS OPERATING IN REVELSTOKE

A mere SIX prominent Enviro–Maniac–Activists are alarming and terrorizing Revelstoke by CONCOCTING FEAR–MONGERING, FRAUDULENT LIES, COERCION, THREATS, DECEPTIONS, TERROR, MISCONCEPTIONS, and PARANOID CONSPIRACIES about pest control products.

NOT A SINGLE ONE of these Enviro–Terrorists has ANY recognized expertise, training or background in matters concerning pest control products !

Their opinions concerning pest control products are TOTALLY VALUELESS and UTTERLY WORTHLESS !

● WARREN BELL ― PAID–FOR–PROFIT HIRED GUN LOBBYIST for Contemptible and Radi- cal Canadian Cancer Society.

● DEBBIE LAZAR ― Furniture salesman who falsely alleges that the death of her husband was somehow caused by pest control products.

● ROB LEGGETT ― Concocted a story about children at risk.

● JERILYNN KIELY ― PAID–FOR–PROFIT LOBBYIST–VIXEN for Contemptible and Radical Canadian Cancer Society, British Columbia Interior.

● PATTI MOORE ― PAID–FOR–PROFIT LOBBYIST–VIXEN for Contemptible and Radical Canadian Cancer Society, British Columbia Kootenay Region.

● SARAH NEWTON ― Self–appointed President and Director of North Columbia Environ-

mental Society, and the ARCHITECT OF ENVIRONMENTAL–TERROR in Revelstoke. She also

conveniently serves on Revelstoke’s DISGRACEFUL, BIASED, and SUBVERSIVE Environ- mental Advisory Committee that evaluates the need for prohibition.

THE REVELSTOKE ENVIRONMENTAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The DISGRACEFUL, BIASED, and SUBVERSIVE Environmental Advisory Committee, created by the City of Revelstoke, is a mere POLITICAL SHIELD for the Environmental–Terror–Move- ment. This group is composed of people with absolutely NO expertise in matters concerning pest control products ― Danielle Backman. Kelsey Furk. Claire Macdonald. Michael Mor- ris. Sarah Newton. Trace Pecora. Angus Woodman. Anna Young.

Enviro–Maniac–Activists within this assemblage of RADICAL and CONTEMPTIBLE people con- spire towards NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS prohibition of conventional pest con- trol products that are FEDERALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE, and ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE. Do these people know more than Health Canada ?!?!

Revelstoke’s DISGRACEFUL, BIASED, and SUBVERSIVE Environmental Advisory Committee is composed of people with ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERTISE in matters concerning pest control products. Consequently, the opinions expressed by these Enviro–Maniac–Activists are TO- TALLY VALUELESS and UTTERLY WORTHLESS.

Additionally, Revelstoke’s DISGRACEFUL, BIASED, and SUBVERSIVE Environmental Advisory Committee is composed of Enviro–Maniac–Activists with DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE for the plight of the hapless victims that will result from their proposed Enviro–Prohibition–Terror. They know full well that elsewhere in Canada, prohibition has inflicted HORRENDOUS CAR- NAGE on the Green Space Industry.

HORRENDOUS PROHIBITION CARNAGE

The prohibition of pest control products in several jurisdictions is TERRORIZING and ANNI- HILATING the entire Modern Green Space Industry, leading to LOSS OF REVENUES, BUSI- NESS FAILURES, BANKRUPTCY, and UNEMPLOYMENT, inflicting TERROR, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION on THOUSANDS of hapless victims throughout the Green Space Industry.

Prohibition has inflicted HORRENDOUS CARNAGE on the Green Space Industry.

Consequently, the members of Environmental Advisory Committee, and other Enviro–Ma- niac–Government–Officials, are now included among those that may eventually be charged with FRAUD and CONSPIRACY. All names, statements, activities, and affiliations have been archived for eventual CRIMINAL CHARGES. These people may be made to pay for the CAR- NAGE in their community.

Additionally, charges are being laid elsewhere in Canada

C HARGES AGAINST O NTARIO O FFICIALS AND E NVIRO –M ANIACS Prohibition in Ontario

CHARGES AGAINST ONTARIO OFFICIALS AND ENVIRO–MANIACS

Prohibition in Ontario was achieved by DECEITFUL Enviro–Maniac–Government–Officials who concocted a classification of pest control products based on a methodology that FRAUDU- LENTLY AVOIDED SOUND REGULATORY SCIENCE. Additionally, Environmental–Terror– Organizations have concocted stories that pest control products are somehow « linked » to environmental and health problems in order to increase their memberships and donations !

In January 2010, the Green Space Industry outlined the list of CHARGES against the Gov- ernment of Ontario and the Ministry of the Environment.

Additionally, individual Enviro–Maniac members of Environmental–Terror–Organizations are facing FRAUD charges under the Canadian Criminal Code. The legal challenge is organized by Jeffrey Lowes and M–REP Communications.

These Enviro–Maniac–Activists conspired with Government Officials by using DISGRACE- FULLY FALSE and MISLEADING information in order to impede access to Health–Canada– Approved products through FRAUDULENT MEANS. The reputations of several of these al- leged culprits is in doubt, since they have conspired towards NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS prohibition of conventional pest control products that are FEDERALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE, and ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE.

NOT A SINGLE ONE of the alleged Enviro–Maniac–Government–Officials and Enviro–Maniac– Activists can be recognized as an expert, scientist, or researcher with credentials in the field of pest control products. These Enviro–Maniac–Activists have routinely compensated for their lack of expertise by frequently resorting to FEAR–MONGERING, FRAUDULENT LIES, MISCONCEPTIONS, COERCION, THREATS, DECEPTIONS, TERROR, and PARANOID CON- SPIRACIES about pest control products. Many of them are simply GREEDY and AVARI- CIOUS Enviro–Maniac–Activists that concoct programs and legislation that reward them with SAFE, SECURE, GUARANTEED, and WELL–PAYING ENVIRO–TERROR–JOBS. Furthermore, Maniac–Activists and their avaricious organizations have become MILLIONAIRES ! Their pretentious prohibitionist rants have been rewarded with MILLIONS OF DOLLARS from gov- ernment and private donations ! The more these Enviro–Maniac–Activists concoct FEAR– MONGERING, FRAUDULENT LIES, MISCONCEPTIONS, COERCION, THREATS, DECEPTIONS, TERROR, and PARANOID CONSPIRACIES about conventional pest control products, the more they become RICH !

REVELSTOKE TIMES REVIEW

A council discussion about the city’s role in the regulation of cosmetic pesti- cides resulted in the DEFEAT of a motion calling for future decision–making based on the PRECAUTIONARY PRINC IPLE, and the will of the majority.

[

So much for this being an unbiased professional report ]

[

Enviro–Maniac ] Councillor ANTO INETTE H ALBERSTADT presented the motion,

and in the end was THE O NL Y O NE W HO SUPPO R TE D I T.

The June 22 [ 2010 ] council debate, however, does not substantially change the city’s course when it comes to plans to expand an existing cosmetic pesti- cide ban on public parks and fields to include private properties.

The discussion arose in response to letters from the « Industry Task Force II on 2,4D Research Data », an organization supported by several pesticide manu- facturers.

The letter picks out statements contained in city meeting minutes from J UNE of 2009 that link the pesticide 2,4–D to cancer, non–Hodgkin lymphoma, breast cancer and childhood leukemia and REFUTES T HE M, claiming 2–4,D is safe and

BACKGROUND INFORMATION FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE ―

THE INDUSTRY TASK FORCE II ON 2,4–D RESEARCH DATA ―

The Industry Task Force II on 2,4–D Research Data was formed to work closely with the United States Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ) and the Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ).

Its role is to fund new research and provide information to each agency as re- quired by their respective pesticide re–registration and re–evaluation pro- grams.

The 2,4–D Task Force is made up of those companies owning the technical registrations on the active ingredient in 2,4–D herbicides. They are Dow AgroSciences ( USA ), Nufarm, Ltd. ( Australia ) and Agro–Gor Corporation ( USA & Argentina ).

The Task Force does not conduct the research required by EPA and PMRA, it simply funds the scientific research needed to meet all agency requirements and keep 2,4–D registrations in the United States and Canada constantly up to date. All research funded by the Task Force is conducted under stringent Good Laboratory ( GLP ) Practice guidelines.

MYTH–BUSTING ―

√ FACT : 2,4–D is SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE !

Overall, when it is used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

√ FACT : 2,4–D is probably THE MOST studied and best understood of ANY

chemical ― not just pesticide ― in existence.

√ FACT : Despite the opposite claims from Environmental–Terror–Orga-

nizations, NO regulatory body in the world classifies 2,4–D as a human car-

cinogen.

√ FACT : 2,4–D DOES NOT cause cancer, which was the conclusion of the

Health Canada’s respected Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) in

2005, indicating that ― « the toxicological database does not suggest a carcinogenic risk » .

The PMRA has stated that ― « No other international body considers 2,4–D to be

The PMRA has stated that ―

The PMRA has stated that ― « No other international body considers 2,4–D to be a

« No other international body considers 2,4–D to be a human carcinogen. Based on all available and relevant data, Health Canada agrees with this posi- tion. »

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ) has stated that ―

« The Agency has determined that the existing data do not support a conclu- sion that links human cancer to 2,4–D exposure. »

√ FACT : 2,4–D, which is used for turf weed control, has been tested with

groups of people consisting of homeowners, professional applicators, and by– standers.

The study showed that these people had a level of exposure to 2,4–D that was lower than those standards accepted by the international scientific com- munity.

√ FACT : Enviro–Maniac–Activists and their Environmental–Terror–Organi-

zations are WRONG about 2,4–D !

IGNORANT WACK–JOB ENVIRO–MANIACS ―

√ FACT : Enviro–Maniac–Activists are frequently ONLY able to provide in-

formation based upon JUNK SCIENCE instead of SOUND SCIENCE !

√ FACT : Enviro–Maniac–Activists have compensated for their lack of ex-

pertise by frequently resorting to MYTHS, DECEPTIONS, FEAR–MONGERING, FRAUDULENT LIES, MISCONCEPTIONS, COERCION, THREATS, TERROR, and

PARANOID CONSPIRACIES about pest control products.

√ FACT : Enviro–Maniac–Activists and their Environmental–Terror–Orga-

nizations are WRONG about conventional pest control products !

√ FACT : NOT A SINGLE PERSON in the Environmental–Terror–Movement

has ANY recognized expertise, training or background in matters concerning pest control products !

Many Enviro–Maniac–Activists are narrow–minded and little people who are non–professionals, and do not even have high education, or possess a degree of ANY kind. Their opinions concerning pest control products are TOTALLY VALUELESS and UTTERLY WORTHLESS !

[ Enviro–Maniac ] Councillor ANTO INETTE H ALBERSTADT’s response was a motion requesting council base their decisions and deliberations regarding cosmetic pesticides on the PRECA UTI O NA RY P RI N CI PLE and the will of the majority of citi-

zens, « rather than on specific arguments for and against the alleged safety or harmfulness of specific pesticides, including 2,4–D ».

Although all councillors eventually O PPO SED the motion, the reasons they cited were somewhat different.

Councillor TONY SCARCELLA was the only councillor to overtly state the position that cosmetic pesticides were « safe ». He restated the position he presented at the J UNE 10 city health advisory committee meeting

<< It's not a health issue, pesticide 2,4–D, and people should make their own decision. [ It ] should be voluntary, not council decisions. >>

Councillor C HRIS J OHNSTON said he felt the [ Precautionary Principle ] motion would bind future decisions of council and could not support it.

were « polarized very, very significantly » on the issue. He had been dealing

with the debate for 30 years.

<<

Unfortunately, it's not clean science in some cases.

In the end, R AVEN said he CO UL D NO T S U PPO RT a motion that would « fetter » the future decision–making of this and future councils.

Cosmetic pesticide ban bylaw work continues

The discussion was in response to correspondence, and is separate from ongo- ing staff work to prepare a bylaw that is exploring extending the existing ban on public property to private property.

City administrator R OSS M CPHEE said staff was working on the bylaw and should have it ready for council by LATE AUGUST or EARLY SEPTEMBER.

The city recently hired new contract–based environmental sustainability coor- dinator, [ and Enviro–Maniac ] P ENNY P AGE–B RITTIN, and mayor R AVEN said she

would also be working on the plan. « It’s one of her highest priorities » he

said.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE ―

Penny Page–Brittin is an Enviro–Maniac–Activist who was previously employed by « Bear Aware Society » , which is a branch of « Wildsight » , an Environ- mental–Terror–Organization that has conspired to prohibit pest control prod- ucts that are federally legal, scientifically safe, and totally irreplaceable.

[ Quelle surprise ! ]

At their J UNE 17 meeting, the committee passed a motion supporting city moves on both fronts, saying decisions on the matter should take into account the precautionary principle when it comes to health. [ ?!?! ]

Committee member [ and Enviro–Maniac ] SARAH NEWTON said

the committee has pushed for the ban on public fields first because parents like herself could voluntarily restrict pesti- cide use at home, but not when her kids were involved with activities in public spaces. « That is where our kids

are » she said.

[ ?!?! ]

« That is where our kids are » she said. [ ?!?! ] She also said

She also said that in her discussion with C ANADIAN C ANCER SOC IETY [ Enviro– Maniac ] representatives, she was told to expect significant opposition to city moves by pesticide industry lobbyists. « As soon as it hits the wire, these peo-

ple will be on you. That's what they do » said NEWTON. [ Poor little persecuted Enviro–Terrorist ! ]

Committee members also discussed a perceived generation gap on the issue.

Chairperson [ and Enviro–Maniac ] K ELSEY FURK wondered if older R EVELSTOKI- ANS still adhered to the « better living through chemicals » motto of yesteryear.

« The hardest sell will be to older people »

she said.

The NORTH C OLUMB IA E NV IRONMENTAL SOC IETY [ an Enviro–Terror–Organization

operated by Enviro–Maniac Newton ] gathered significant public support for the initial ban, including letters from diverse stakeholder groups such as the school district, the Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club, the Revelstoke Minor Soccer Association, the Friends of Mt. Revelstoke & Glacier and the Illecillewaet

Greenbelt Society.

[ How much support ?!?! ]

REVELSTOKE TIMES REVIEW

In light of what he is calling new evidence of the safety of cosmetic pesticides, Councillor TONY SCARCELLA is pushing the city to RESCI ND their cosmetic pesti- cide ban.

It has been a year since the city banned cosmetic pesticide use on city parks and playing fields.

In M ARCH of this year, council gave city staff six months to prepare a report ex- ploring options for a city–wide cosmetic pesticide ban that would extend to pri- vate properties.

Councillor SCARCELLA chose the JUNE 10 city H EALTH ADV ISORY C OMM ITTEE

meeting as the venue to table plans for an about–face on the issue.

He cited a letter that was recently sent to council as proof that H EALTH C ANADA had found cosmetic pesticides were safe.

<<

Everyone should know that this 2,4–D is not a health risk.

>>

The letter in question was recently discussed at an in–camera city meeting, but is not yet publicly available.

SCARCELLA also said the ban was CO STING THE CI T Y MO NE Y, though he didn’t present any figures.

Speaking at the health committee meeting, [ Enviro–Maniac ] Councillor ANTO IN- ETTE H ALBERSTADT dismissed the letter as chemical industry propaganda, say-

ing the authors were « basically pesticide industry ».

[ ?!?! ]

Committee member [ and Enviro–Maniac ] J ILL Z ACHARIAS said the letter amounted to « wordsmithing and wordplay », and that a well–financed cam- paign by the pesticide industry against progressive city moves was to be ex- pected. [ ?!?! ]

« The city should stay strong and say ‘no’ » said health committee chairperson

[ and Enviro–Maniac ] NELLI R ICHARDSON. « Why would you take the risk ? »

The committee also called for a presentation from the [ Contemptible and Radi- cal ] C ANADIAN C ANCER SOC IETY ( CCS ) to council on the subject of pesticide safety. CCS representatives did make a presentation to the city last year, but that was at a special meeting, not a council meeting.

In fact, PROFESSIONAL LAWN CARE maintenance requires LESS PESTICIDE– INPUTS than Daffodil Production.

If it is safe touch and hold a pesticide–treated daffodil, it is also safe to walk on a pesticide–treated lawn.

The Myth of the Twisted–Enviro–Version of the So–Called Precautionary Principle D ESCRIPTION OF THE T

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–En-viro– Version of the « Precautionary Principle », which is actually called the « Wingspread Statement » ―

<< When an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environ- ment, precautionary measures should be taken even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. >>

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.

<< Where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost– effective measures to prevent Environmental degradation. >>

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

T HE W ISDOM OF S OLOMON The « Precautionary Principle » has been well

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 ―

<< Landscape and garden use of pest control products DOES NOT qualify for consideration under the precautionary principle. They are not serious, they are selective to pests, have low toxicity to non–target organisms, and are well understood. The effects of these pest control products are not irre- versible. There is rapid recovery through reinvasion and weed seeds and most need to be used at least once per year. >>

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 ―

<<

[ we ] recommend that it cease to be included in policy guidance.

[

]

the term ‘ precautionary principle ’ SHOULD NOT be used, and

>>

<< In our view, the terms " precautionary principle " and " precautionary ap- proach " in isolation from any such clarification have been the subject of such confusion and different interpretations as to be devalued and of little practical help, particularly in public debate. Indeed, without such clarifica- tion and explanation, to elevate the precautionary approach or principle to a scientific methodology, which can be proved or disproved to have been ap- plied in any particular case, is both unrealistic and impractical. It also pro- vides ammunition for those seeking to promote an overly cautious approach to innovation or exposure to any risk at all. >>

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.

Force Of Nature presents THE WHOLE TRUTH FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE from National Organization Re-

Force Of Nature presents THE WHOLE TRUTH FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE from National Organization Re- sponding 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 Can- ada, the United States, and overseas. The information presented in Force Of Nature has been developed for the educa- tion and entertainment of the reader by providing a sequence of historical events WITH COMMENTARY. The neutrality of these Reports might be disputed.

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 Officials into the NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PRO- HIBITION of conventional pest control products that are FEDERALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, TOTALLY IRRE- PLACEABLE, and ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE.

All information, excerpts, and pictures contained in this Report were found somewhere on the Internet, and may be considered in the public domain, serving one of the following purposes ― archive, education, promotion, publicity, or press release. The events, characters, companies, and organizations, depicted in this Report are not always fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, may not be coincidental. Force Of Nature is TOTALLY INDEPENDENT of any trade association or business operating within the Green Space Industry. Don’t thank us. It’s a public service. And we are glad to do it.

Force Of Nature, and its various incarnations, is the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his entourage. Mr. Gather- cole is a principal FOUNDER of the Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry in BOTH Ontario and Quebec. He holds a degree in Horticulture from the UNIVERSITY 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 public affairs, workplace safety, and environmental compli- ance. Mr. Gathercole has supervised, consulted, programmed, and/or overseen the successful and safe execution of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of pest control applications in the urban landscape. He has trained, instructed, and con- sulted 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 Authority. Mr. Gathercole is now retired from Force Of Nature, although his name continues to appear as the FOUNDER. Mr. Gathercole is personally credited for crafting the Golf Industry Exception Status that en- dures to this day. He is also the creator of the signs that are now used for posting after application. His vast knowl- edge of our long journey with Environmental Issues is UNDENIABLE ― hopefully ! For FIFTEEN YEARS, the strategies designed and implemented by Mr. Gathercole and his colleagues guaranteed the control of Environmental Terror for the entire Modern Green Space Industry across Canada. Mr. Gathercole’s 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. Mr. Gathercole is the ONLY TRUE RELIABLE WITNESS of the Hudson Affair.

Mr. Gathercole and his entourage have followed the evolution of ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM for over a quarter cen- tury. Through Force Of Nature, Enviro Maniac Activist Huje are identified on the basis of their statements, activities, af- filiations, 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.
