It's sad but they are making an effort to relocate the plants. I hope it's a successful relocation.

That's sad. Human activities can be very invasive. Indigenous plants on the prairies are also endangered.

That headline and parts of that story are misleading and conflicting. First it says 'an effort is being made to move' those two specie's plants, then it says they ARE going to be relocated. The latter is true. And so those plants aren't really 'threatened' with dying, which seems to be implied. That bridge has to be built somewhere and from what I know, everything possible has been done to protect species (province of Ontario). As for ''Canada's Works Dept.' there's no such thing. There's not even an 'Ontario Works Dept.' (provincial). There's MUNICIPAL Works Depts., such as Windsor Works Dept. etc. for every municipality. So whoever wrote this story at CBC has very little clue about facts.
