Echo the call for invasives action

Phragmites must be dealt with

To the Expositor:

Sounds like our provincial government and also local authorities responsible for our environment should be heeding Ms. Jones timely warning (Expositor September 14, page 4) regarding the invasive species known as phragmites. Let us hope that her message is received and acted upon swiftly by the powers-that-be. I certainly hope that MPP Michael Mantha is listening.

All who care about this wonderful Island will be surely be watching for an effective programme to deal with the phragmites threat!

Sincerely,

Eric Balkind
