B.C.’s Ministry of Environment is reviewing claims that CN Rail improperly sprayed herbicides directly adjacent to the Skeena River between Terrace and Prince Rupert.

Photographs taken along the river near CN tracks show what appears to be a line of dead vegetation that crosses creeks and waterways, according to the environmentalists who documented the more than 100 kilometer stretch of treated area.
