Gopher Poison

The RM of Excelsior has Burrow Oat Bait and Rodent Bait to be used on gophers which we sell to RM ratepayers for use in the RM of Excelsior only.  The bait is a pasteurized oat bait and is treated with zinc phosphide which means it will not germinate. It was found to be as effective as strychnine and less expensive. It is also less prone to leaving dangerous residue in dead gophers. The cost is subsidized 50% by the RM and is sold in 20 kg bags.  Please contact the RM Office for further information if required.

Train Blocking Crossing?

Is a train blocking a crossing for more than five minutes? Call the CP number found on the yellow sticker on the warning system.  You should also send a note to which is Transport Canada. Information that is important is the date, time, rail car number, locomotive number. Video evidence is also a good thing. Trains must be fully stopped for five minutes or more before you report it.
