The City was advised on Tuesday by the Kwikwetlem First Nations that they will be burning land clearing debris (i.e. tree branches) over a 24 hour period. We have now been advised that the burning will continue for the rest of the week.
As the burning is taking place on KFN lands, City bylaws do not apply. However our Fire Department has visited the site and confirmed that the burning is taking place in a controlled environment and being monitored 24/7.
We advise residents impacted by the smoke to take the appropriate measures. Thank you.
