BIGGEST SALE

OF THE YEAR!

“We are fairly new to the area and when we decided to buy a home,

we found using a mortgage broker the easiest way to find the best

financing available. We are very happy we worked with Nancy Trotman

at The Mortgage Centre. It was a great experience!

We can’t thank her enough. Nancy was great to work with.

She was very thorough and professional but friendly and

approachable. She answered all of our questions and concerns.

She made the whole process of getting a mortgage easy; staying

on top of everything every step of the way and made sure all our

deadlines were met.

We appreciate all the time she gave us and highly recommend her for

any mortgage or financing needs.

Development of a pest management plan

Reference renewal # FBCE-1-2020/2025, FBCG-2-2020/2025, FBCW-3-2020/2025

FortisBC Inc. and FortisBC Energy Inc. (collectively referred to as FortisBC) is renewing (3)

their existing Integrated Pest Management Plans (IPMP) under British Columbia’s Integrated

Pest Management Act and associated regulations. Under these regulations, these plans are

required to be renewed every five years.

The purpose of this renewal is to support an integrated approach to managing and

controlling pests and/or vegetation associated with gas & electrical facilities, rights of way,

wood structures and related operating infrastructure. The overarching goal of the program

is to support the safety and reliability of FortisBC’s gas and electric infrastructure. These

IPMP’s will cover FortisBC’s service and operating areas in British Columbia, which include

communities on Vancouver Island, Greater Vancouver, Sunshine Coast, Whistler, Fraser

Valley, Okanagan, Kootenays, Similkameen, Thompson-Nicola, Columbia-Shuswap, Cariboo,

Fraser-Fort George, Peace River and Northern Rockies Regional Municipality.

Using the principles of integrated pest management (IPM), the pest management methods

proposed for use may include, but not be limited to, tree falling, cutting, brushing (including

various types of brush cutting such as mowing, slashing, etc. using various types of hand

and mechanized tools), seeding, revegetation, biological control and the use of pesticides by

ground application. Trade names of the pesticides proposed for use under this plan

may include:

• Vantage XRT, VP480, Clearview, Navius VM, Escort, Tordon 22K, Banvel VM, MCPA Amine

500, Truvist, Esplanade SC, Transline, Lontrel 360, Arsenal Powerline, Detail, Torpedo.

(Active ingredients: Aminopyralid, metsulfuron-methyl, diflunfenzopyr, MCPA,

2,4-D, Picloram, Chlorsulfuron, Dicamba, Aminocyclopyrachlor, Indaziflam, Clopyralid,

Glyphosate, Imazapyr, Saflufenacil, Flumioxazin, Pyroxasulfone.)

• Pesticides proposed for wood pole maintenance: Cop-R-Plastic, Cobra Wrap Gel, Can-Bor,

Cu-Bor, Cobra Rod, Cobra Wrap, Pro-foam. (Active Ingredients: Copper Naphthenate &

sodium fluoride, Copper naphthenate, Sodium tetraborate decahydrate, Copper hydroxide,

Carboxymethyl cellulose, Gluconic acid, Sodium gluconate, Disodium octaborate

tetrahydrate, Copper salt, 2-aminoethanol, Antydrous disodium octaborate, Boric acid,

Sodium decyl, Sodium lauroampho acetate, Sodium lauryl sulfate.)

The proposed term of the IPMP is five years from June 5, 2020 to June 4, 2025.

A draft copy of these IPMP documents are available and may be viewed upon request by

contacting the applicant below:

FortisBC

Attn: Right of Way Group

c/o 1975 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC V1Y 7V7

Email: RightOfWay@fortisbc.com

Radon detection kits

available at your library

The Kaslo & District Public Library

is offering a radon detection kit that

patrons can borrow to measure radon

levels in their homes or places of business.

The aim of this lending program

is to increase awareness about radon and encourage people to test their homes, as

the majority of the exposures occur where people spent most of their time.

Radon detection kits will be available for three week loan periods. The digital

monitors are extremely easy to use: all one has to do is place the device in a specific

area of the home, or work, for three weeks to determine the radon level in that

environment. The kits come with information about the gas, factors that influence

indoor levels and strategies to reduce exposure.

Radon gas is radioactive and comes from naturally occurring uranium in soils

and rocks; it is an odorless, tasteless and colourless indoor air hazard that can lead

to serious health issues. There are several regions in Canada that have higher levels

of uranium than others, and parts

of the Kootenays/Boundary region fall

into that category.

A group of SFU researchers have

been working with Health Canada

and the BC Lung Association in order

to raise awareness of the dangers of

radon exposure. Through a grant, this

group has made available radon detection

kits to all public libraries in the

Kootenays.

The digital monitors used in this program

are intended for short-term testing

and do not replace the long-term

tests recommended by Health Canada.

Because the loan period needs to be

limited, the intent of providing these

devices is to simply allow patrons to

get an idea of the radon levels in their

home.

Dexter

Dexter is a 1 1/2-year-old mastiff mix that has come to us from Alberta

where he was brought in as a stray. Dexter is an active, playful, friendly

young man that needs a family willing to put some training into him and

keep him active both mentally and physically. He’s good with children,

but as he still acts like a puppy we recommend older children who are

used to being around big dogs. If this beautiful brindle boy sounds like

a perfect match for you, then come down to the West Kootenay BCSPCA

and meet this wonderful boy today!

What’s in your farm soil?

Bring soil and compost samples to look at under the microscope

in this hands-on, intensive Soil Biology Identification

workshop and identify the soil organisms on your farm. The

instructor’s microscope will be projected, but bring a microscope

if you have one or can scare one up. (Email andrew@

kbfa.ca for specs on a basic scope).

This workshop is intended for commercial producers with

some knowledge of soils. You will learn how to use a microscope

as a regular farm tool, what organisms to look for in

healthy soils and ways to enhance their habitat and increase

their numbers.

Jo Tobias is a regenerative soils consultant, permaculture

practitioner, educator and owner of RootShoot Soils. Jo will

be presenting the workshop on Monday, February 17, 9 am to

4:30 pm at the Taghum Hall, 5915 Taghum Hall Road, Nelson.

Space is limited and is reserved for commercial producers.
