Another meeting to talk pesticides
There is no good reason to poison our environment with cosmetic pesticides. Having already suffered from the effects of these in an Australia college setting I sustained permanent lung damage which caused me to have to leave my position at the college. Remaining staff and some students who had also suffered instituted a class action suit against the college.
At the time I was so ill and apathetic about pesticides having previously demonstrated and objected long and hard I don’t know what the outcome of that lawsuit was. I do know that the ducks on the college ponds all died and autopsies showed their bodies contained herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. My Australia doctor marveled on my survival after he read the list of poisons used by the college. One of our number sustained temporary blindness due to the use of cleaning chemicals.
So, yet again despite making known the views of all us dissidents who are absolutely against cosmetic pesticides the Town of Stratford is holding yet another meeting on the evening of Tuesday, July 7, in order that people may voice their views. That 74 per cent, so I believe, of Stratford residents do not use pesticides is apparently still not enough evidence to ban these poisons. Hilary Prince, Stratford
