Lending a hand to the Monarchs


The Monarch butterfly may be getting some love in Chatham-Kent following an idea from South Kent. Coun. Trevor Thompson.

At the Feb. 6 council meeting, Thompson put forward a notice of motion for administration to investigate what actions can be taken by the municipality to assist the public in helping the prolific pollinator. The population of the colourful insect is in decline, Thompson said, due to loss of habitat and use of herbicides.

The motion will come before council on March 6.
