Mar 30, 2016
KELOWNA, BC – Following a successful pilot program last year, today Premier Christy Clark announced a $2 million boost to the province’s invasive mussel defence program that will see eight permanent mussel inspection stations installed at major entry points along B.C.’s borders.
“B.C. is leading the fight against invasive species,” said Premier Clark. “To date, no zebra or quagga mussels have ever been detected in B.C.’s waterways and we’re going to keep it that way. Eight more inspection stations are yet another tool towards ensuring we remain mussel-free.
