Through the Province’s expanded Invasive Mussel Defence Program, crews have inspected a record 24,500 watercraft for invasive quagga and zebra mussels this boating season, helping B.C. to remain free of invasive mussels.
Minister of Environment Mary Polak has issued the following statement on the federal decision regarding pipeline projects:
The Province’s public consultation on B.C. species at risk wraps up on Nov. 30, giving the public just one more week to provide their feedback on the Species at Risk Engagement website: http://engage.gov.bc.ca/speciesatrisk/
British Columbia has again been honoured as an international climate leader for its revenue-neutral carbon tax.
