Force of Nature zeros in on Ontario pesticide ban

The Ontario pesticide ban is scheduled to take effect in April. About 250 products are being taken away from residential lawn care. A rather remarkable e-newsletter, called Force of Nature, being written by  William H. Gathercole, a long-time Green Industry trainer, instructor and columnist, offers a wealth of information on the ban, plus some fascinating personal commentary.

He says the opinions in the e-newsletter don’t reflect those of everyone in the Green Space Industry, or, on occasion, even his own associates. In fact, he admits that he and his team may sometimes be “irreverent or fearless” with their commentary, which is somewhat of an understatement. The enewsletter is unlike anything of its kind that shows up in my email.

Gathercole says that he’s been accused of being anti–environment, but he considers himself a Green Industry advocate, which, he points out, hasn’t stopped him from criticizing the industry on occasion — when he deems that it deserves criticism.

Gathercole, who holds a horticulture degree from the University of Guelph and another pure and applied science degree from McGill University, is a frequent contributor to Canada's TURF & Recreation Magazine.

He says he’s been following “environmental terrorism” for more than a quarter of century. Now he’s writing about it.

Billy Gatherhole's Force of Nature "newsletter" is the worst example of an information I have ever seen. I looks as if it is produced by a 5 year old.

This guys is a nut job... don't get on his email list you will get one at least every day, and it seems impossible to get off of it. He thinks he is helping the cause, but it is radicals like this that are a part of the problem not the solution!

Yes, the newsletter from "force of nature" is definitely the work of a nucking fut. And you can't get off the maillist once on...

This guy is a whack job. He will not remove you from the list and is doing harm to our cause. Please post his contact info here if you have it.

Excellent topics. I really like this. After long searching I found this online that, Personal Trainer in Ontario gets local Ontario residents into amazing shape with intense personal fitness training workouts. It's important that you pick out a trainer that is certified in their field, one that has great motivational skills, and of course someone that has plenty of fitness knowledge.

I've been trying to get off this guys mailing list for 2 years!
I can't find a phone number anywhere and have sent literally dozens of requests to be removed. All it seems to do is trigger another e-newsletter, if you want to call it that. Anyone know how to get rid of this problem?

this might be his email address:

I too have been annoyed by his emails for a couple of years. He will not stop no matter how many times I ask.

Thank you for posting his email whg007@gmail.com & http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1622667284 I'm going to spam the heck out of those email addresses.
I'm tired of getting his emails and I can't seem to stop it.

Hey.. this is really interesting. Congrats for this stuff. It can be really effective using the personal trainer Oakville or joining a training center/gym for gaining a perfect body rather than doing individually. It really helps a lot.
