Conservationists are happy about restoring a waterway through Burnaby. A “fishway” on Guichon Creek was finished, letting salmon to reach an upper part of the waterway. Mark Angelo first saw the creek in the 1970s as terribly polluted and without any fish. Since then, efforts were made to bring it back to life. In the late 1990s, trout was returned to the creek, and about 16 years ago, salmon followed. Now, the “fishway” allows salmon to get upstream on their own. Crews were able to uncover and restore a previously covered section of the creek as well. It’s a hopeful example for the future of our environment. It highlighted the fact that nature can heal itself if given a chance.
