Tools to Fight Invasive Species

MPs Ron Cannan and Dan Albas were in Kelowna Friday to announce proposed regulations to battle invasive aquatic species.

The regulatory framework would give provinces and territories new tools to prevent the introduction of these types of species to Canada, from other countries or within provinces and regions.

“From an educational perspective, we are aware of the issue of invasive species coming into our community,” Ron Cannan said. “Whether it’s through a float plane or a boat, intentional or unintentional, the fact is that we want to ensure the health and productivity of all our water systems.”
