A few months back, I talked to our city manager about the garbage strewn along our Abbotsford streets. I suggested that just as we home-owners are held responsible for the snow and ice in front of our homes, it should be a simple matter to require all property owners to pick up the garbage on their frontage. What is most obvious is the garbage embedded in the ornamental shrubs fronting businesses along our main streets.

We have almost a thousand city employees, earning generous wages, so maybe city clean-up could be contracted out to people glad to work for a bit less money.

Here’s (1) the link to the Province article, (2) an appropriate comment lodged on the City of Surrey Facebook site, and (3) my photos of Abbotsford.
