SGT. STEVE CHIASSON of 442 Squadron conquers a pile of Scotch broom along Ryan Road as part of a volunteer initiative organized by 19 Wing's Sustainable Communities committee to clear the invasive plant from areas surrounding 19 Wing Comox.

Scotch broom will be missed?

I don’t know about anybody else, but for the past 20+ years, I have loved seeing the broom in flower at this time of the year on Ryan Road, and quite honestly, Ryan Road being backed by trees, it did not spread much anywhere else.

So now all we’ll have to look at will be the weeds growing — nettles, quack grass, cow parsley, etc.

V. Pratt,

Comox
