GINTA – One man’s garbage (in a park), is everyone’s garbage

A WHILE AGO I brought up the high density of dog poo I see everyday during the walks with my pup through Peterson Creek.

We had a few more dumps of snow since, and the winter’s magic act of covering the said mounds offered temporary visual tranquility.

As of a few days ago, snow has melted, save for a few patches here and there, and a couple of trails still hiding under snow and ice on those parts where the sun doesn’t reach much. The melt came fast and there is but one word to sum up the aftermath: muck! Loads of it.

  1. I never thought I,d utter these words,”I agree with Pierre on this one”.

  2. “Be it so, we did.” Nice phrase. India recently banned the use of any disposable plastic in its capital and Kenya banned plastic bags altogether. And we think that we are up to date.

  3. If fast food places, the “peak” of consumeristic grossness would all of the sudden cease to exist, most of the garbage would be gone also.
    As far as the dog faces goes, I was thinking of collecting a big bucket of it and deposit it on the front steps at City Hall…because they could do something about it but they are so far, refusing to take any action. I was out and about at Kenna’s park on Friday afternoon and there is dog crap everywhere! Furthermore, plenty of neighbors (I live near the park) regularly take their unleashed dogs into the lower reaches of the park…for a short walk, take a crap and walk back home. How neighborly is that? How responsible is that? And what are these neighbors teaching to their kids?
