A few days ago, CBC Radio News and the St. Catharines Standard 
newspaper for Saturday 24 June announced that two nectarine trees in 
an orchard near Niagara-on-the-Lake in the Niagara Peninsula had been 
found to be infected with the plum pox virus. The trees had been 
imported from Pennsylvania in 1997.

The discovery occurred as a result of a program to check trees of 
Prunus species imported from Pennsylvania in recent years. The 
infected trees will be destroyed.
