CFIA has updated its Avian influenza control zone page to include an interactive map to zoom into control zones for commercial farms. However, the location and control zone for the first small holding is withheld.

To ensure compliance with the Privacy Act and provide protection of personal information, the location of an infected zone around a non-commercial farm is not marked on this map. An 1 km infected zone has been established around a non-commercial farm which is located in Aldergrove between Highway 1 and the Fraser River, west of the Langley / Abbotsford boundary.

The above site is outside of the 10 km restricted zone defined by the 9th site in Matsquie or the zone defined by the 11th site 1 km from the US border in Langley

In response to questions from Niman that the CFIA has not acted quickly enough, a spokesperson said the agency "is committed to sharing new information related to the avian influenza situation in a timely manner. The Agency regularly posts updates to the web via the Infected Premises Table, the Timeline of Events, and online statements."

CFIA agrees that wild birds are a problem since they cannot be controlled, which is why biosecurity on farms plays a "very important role."

"Wild birds are certainly a serious concern regarding the spread of this disease as wild birds are natural reservoirs of influenza viruses and have natural migration pathways," the agency said.

The CFIA has not detected either H5N2 or H5N8 in wild birds anywhere in Canada in 2014.

The non-commercial holding is now precisely mapped.

Front gate has two large signs saying "no unauthorized entry" and top left of gate has bird dropping (gate not present in google map or bing views of farm).

The Fraser Valley [British Columbia] avian flu outbreak has hit its 1st non-commercial site, infecting a small 85-bird operation. The new case is a small Aldergrove coop raising ducks, chickens, geese and turkeys, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has confirmed.

It's also the 1st infected site in Aldergrove since the virus struck 2 farms in Chilliwack and Abbotsford in early December [2014]. The virus has since spread to 12 sites, infecting nearly 250 000 birds.

Health officials say infection risk to humans is extremely low if poultry products are prepared properly.

[Although the article is short and not specific, it is very likely this is the HPAI H5N2 that has been affecting the areas of the Fraser Valley. This virus shows no mercy in the victim it claims, paying no attention to the small or the large producers. More information about this virus may be found in the moderator's comments in ProMED-mail posting 20141221.3047300.

British Columbia Province of Canada may be located at http://healthmap.org/promed/p/43289. - Mod.TG]
