I firmly believe the bridge will go back in in the same location (with new footings) once the rock slide and "lake" have been removed. The old deck has been saved and will be re-used. Yes the lake is going. The Seymour Salmonid Society, Metro Van, BC and Fed governments have poured waaaay to much $$$ into the re habilitation of the Seymour river salmon and steelhead populations to let a couple of rocks get in the way of what had, up until the slide, been an effort that was begining to yeild some truely impressive results. The slide all but blocks the movement of fish upstream to their spawning grounds and will decimate the stocks and lay waste to the great efforts of so many. The 1st step in this process has started. BC Fisheries and the DFO have/will tag 15 steelhead from the pool below the slide. These are the 1st migratory fish to encounter the barrier. When it is shown, as it is believed, that none of the fish make it past the slide, the slide is as good as toast. Figure on July/August before the Coho and Chinook begin to arrive.
Is it counter productive to ride on my exercise bike with a cocktail in hand?
