Historical footage shows 2,4-d protest on Okanagan Lake

2,4-d in lake protested

Vernon historian Francois Arseneault's latest find is video footage of an environmental protest on Okanagan Lake, likely from about 1976.

The video shows a flotilla of boats and canoes, believed to be in the Kelowna area, as the boaters protest the use of the herbicide 2,4-d.

The chemical was used to control milfoil weeds in the lake until public protest ended the practice.

If you have any information on the footage, leave a comment at Arseneault's Youtube channel.
