ENVIRONMENT MINISTER JOINS 'BUCKET BRIGADE' ON B.C. RIVERS DAY
Once a polluted drainage ditch running through Burnaby, Guichon Creek is now home to all sorts of living creatures. On B.C. Rivers Day, Sept. 28, 2008, Environment Minister Barry Penner, centre, helped increase the creek's population by adding some cutthroat trout. He was assisted by Don Wright, left, president of the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and Mark Angelo, an instructor at the school. Students of the BCIT Fish and Wildlife Program and community groups helped Angelo start the process of rehabilitating the stream a few years ago and now it's a symbol of hope for stream remediation projects throughout B.C. Angelo founded B.C. Rivers Day, the largest event of its type in North America. [More photos]
