Broom buy the way to go

Put a bounty on it and noxious weed will disappear

Driving up to Qualicum yesterday and I was amazed at proliferation of the Scotch broom.  

It is an environmental disaster of an inconceivable magnitude, delivered by Captain Walter Grant, the gentleman who brought three seeds to the island in 1850.

Then I noticed the signs: broombusters.org — you can help. 

Suddenly I had a thought “maybe I can help: why not put a bounty on the plant? Raise money (government and corporate) to subsidize a massive broom buy on Vancouver Island.  

Grind it and compost it, and mark it with B and badda bing-badda-broom – No longer will be!

You’re welcome.
