Spring has Sprung! The grass is…… green???

I am jumping for joy at the sight of the sun! After several weeks of -15C weather, we are going to experience the 15C weather I could only dream about! Spring is FINALLY here!

However, there is something about the arrival of spring that makes me slightly mad. The melting of the snow…. revealing the piles of garbage! Snowbanks are NOT garbage dumps, and “The weather is too cold for me to take my hands out of my mittens to throw/pick up garbage” is not an excuse! It is always during the winter season that Torontonians tend to become litterbugs!

I was watching Cable Pulse and they were saying that the city has to now spend extra money to clean up it’s streets. Tourists and residents of Toronto are complaining about the filth! I thought Toronto was a relatively clean city compared to many major cities in the world. We have garbage disposable areas at almost every street corner and I always see campaigns to keep the city clean. We’ve kept it up good so far…. why spoil it now?

I’m disappointed to know that our tax money, health and image has been jeopardized by people who couldn’t make the effort to throw their garbage into the trash can.

    Some of the debris on the ground is sand, that was put on the ice in the winter.

    I wore sandals today. :)

    whats ironic is that the people who complain, are either contributing to the mess by tossing something on the ground. or when they see something on the ground will not pick it up themselves. theres was a time that every citizen would pick the stuff up, and it wasnt that long ago..what the hell happened?

    there are groups in the city that do clean rallys and pick up garbage in an area as a protest to the dirt left in the city. whats terrible is that these groups are passed by and laughed at cause they’re trying to make the city a cleaner place.
