    The plant in the first photo is not Scotch broom, or any other broom for that matter! But that's not surprising for photos sourced by news media. The photo linked to on the invasive plants group's website shows the correct plant

    This is a good idea. Most people are not aware of the problem and need to be educated.
    I'd like to see other cities follow Whistlers lead, like Burnaby where invasive Holly trees are protected when houses are redeveloped.
