Have a dose of Vantage XRT with your Fish?

West Vancouver is in many ways just like White Rock, both have a railway line impeding traffic, especially the pedestrian variety to their respective municipal waterfronts.    White Rock mainline is run by BNSF; West Vancouver mainline is run by CNR, with a twist, British Columbians OWN the rail bed right-of-ways.

BC Rail crews keep themselves busy with weed keeping duties of the track ballast (below and either side of the tracks) with VANTAGE XRT in the art of Vegetation Management Plan.

Signs like this are in place, West of John Lawson children playground, and East of their playground (their part of the line has already been accomplished)( with dead leaves lying nearby as proof). Its amazing that the public crossover to the playground from the parking lot wasn't sprayed too, eh, or was it?

Call Poison Control Centre.... can you read the phone number, for EDMONTON, and could, would, should Edmonton be able to respond, to dispatch someone?

I like that last bit, "mouth-to-mouth", that would mean TWO people would be down. NO POISON Control Centre Number offered

Putting children at risk, aside, and getting back to the West side of the playground in focus, there's a rail bridge over a Fish Habitat, McDonald Creek, that got nailed hard by VANTAGE XRT!

The Fish, We Eat, contaminated?  The Fish Habitat Program, aware of spraying?
Toxic to Fish
