Noxious weeds

To the editor:

I was most impressed by Gwen Steele’s column on noxious weeds. I believe she has extensive knowledge of weed identification and eradications by means other than chemical sprays.

I live adjacent to what, I believe, is the largest weed infestation in Kelowna, namely the park behind the Hospice House, located on Ethel Street between Springfield Road and Sutherland Avenue.

This area, without a doubt, is home to many of the noxious weeds listed in Schedule “A” of the City of Kelowna Noxious Weed and Grass Control Bylaw.

I would like to see Gwen and the inspector by the City of Kelowna, as listed in the noxious weed bylaw, carry out an inspection of the area and hope that Gwen could write further columns on the noxious weed situation within the city.

Jack Whittle,
