The air quality statement re-issued to the Bulkley Valley has ended according to Environment Canada.

The ongoing statement in the Lakes District was put out due to high dust concentrations, particularly near high-traffic areas.

While the Bulkley Valley’s statement was rescinded at 9:36 this morning, the Lakes District Statement remains in place until further notice.
