Gatineau non-profit plans 'super bee' research project

By Amanda Pfeffer, CBC News Ottawa, May 21, 2019

A Gatineau, Que., non-profit hopes to leverage an explosion in urban beekeeping to boost research in the development of a more resilient "super bee."

It won't be able to jump tall buildings in a single bound, but it may be able to survive Canadian pests and winters.

"The ultimate goal would be to create a local bee that is able to fend off parasites and pathogens," said Pablo Berlanga, president of the Apicentris Collective.
