NORTH SAANICH — The Victoria Airport Authority will be having noxious weeds removed from its property over the next couple weeks.

James Bogusz, vice-president of operations and development for VAA, says residents and passers-by will notice landscaping contractors dressed in protective gear as they remove poisonous hemlock from airport property.

“They will be wearing special suits to protect the workers from the hemlock,” he said. “This is just an alert, in case people want to know what it is they’re doing.”

Bogusz said the landscaping work will be done over the next week or so.
