The M.V. Fintry Queen, a 325 passenger ship on Okanagan Lake, has become the recipient of some holiday cheer.
A clean-up crew, all volunteers from Talon Environmental Services have volunteered their time and equipment, just two days before Christmas, to help with the clean-up and remediation of the vessel, which was recently vandalized by a group who stowed away for several days and left a tragic trail of partying and destruction.
Talon Environmental specializes in crime scene clean up, grow op remediation, decontamination and extreme hoarding situations.
“We are very proud of the five members of our crew that have agreed to work for free, to do what we can to clean up the Fintry Queen” said Jaime Keener, the owner of Talon Environmental.
“It saddened us that people would show such disrespect to a historical icon in Kelowna. We didn’t feel it was fair for one person to have to clean up all the mess. Many hands make light work.”
Also on board will be Gord Rodd from Steamatic Carpet Cleaning in Kelowna, BC., who has kindly volunteered to clean all the carpets aboard the vessel.
