Vancouver city councillor Rebecca Bligh says, Vancouver and Victoria as port cities are more likely to have rat problems because that’s how rats travel historically.
She thinks the issue is under control, but the city is paying close attention to make sure the rat problem does not get worse.
“For us public safety and public health is a very important issue for us to always stay on top of. When it comes to any rodents or rats. If there’s concerns around that, that would be our number one priority and we will continue to work with service providers to make sure the rat problem is mitigated to the best of our ability.” – Rebecca Bligh, Vancouver City Councillor
BC SPCA reminds residents to control the rat population with humane ways.
