BEE-ing very careful, Minister of Agriculture and Lands Pat Bell lifts a bee-covered comb from a hive at Honeyview Farm in Rosedale on Tuesday, Jun. 6. Bell visited the Fraser Valley Farm to highlight the importance of B.C.'s apiary industry. B.C.'s 2,100 beekeepers produce over 4.4 million pounds of honey each year, worth approximately $7 million. Pollination services also play a major role in the province's agriculture industry. Studies have shown that honeybee pollination in B.C. is responsible for more than $160 million per year in agricultural production.
