Local MLA still questions government's fuel spill response

A local MLA is still questioning the government’s ongoing response to the Lemon Creek fuel spill last summer.

This following the recent discovery of absorbent booms on the Creek approximately 10 months after a truck dumped 33 thousand litres of jet fuel into the water.

Kootenay West New Democrat Katrine Conroy brought it up in the Legislature.

Conroy says residents are still bearing the ongoing costs of this spill and not a dime of compensation has been paid to the organic farmers who lost their entire crops.

Environment Minister Mary Pollack responded saying she couldn’t comment on specifics because the matter is in front of the court.
