I wanted to write regarding a problem with the Vancouver Lake. It is a lake that all the locals love to picnic, float on tubes, paddle board, kayak, watch rowers, participate in dragon boat races or just swim. It’s a treasure in Vancouver. But the past few years, a milfoil infestation has been slowly suffocating it. We need to bring awareness and spread the word to inform residents that this gem could possibly not be usable for our community if we don’t help it.
