Dust an issue for many enterprises

Kamloops is built on glacial lake sediments. Much of this is loess, an ultra-fine rock dust. This is a geological fact that cannot be altered.

What can be altered is dust suppression. Trees, grasses and water help. Awareness of this should be added to the discussion of the Ajax mine and other local developments. I think it can be shown that any development, including farming, will throw dust into the air. Just because there is a new kid on the block is no reason to forget the bully that has been there all along.

I hope you don’t beat each other to death when fear of the unknown is the real problem. Kamloops is a good place to live, remember that.
