Missed opportunity.


Yesterday and today would have been the best first days of spring for a clean-up across the city.

The winter was hard on our infrastructure and the people do not help very much. So much litter of all kinds.  Some that should not even, or should soon no longer exist.

The asphalt is crumbling in so many places. There are chunks of “Asphalt Crispies” and rocks/stones and sand grains by themselves stemming from the constant grinding from the car truck tires. Sand and stone was also used alongside of the salts that have all but gone down our drains and into the rivers and streams. Clogging  and damaging our sewer systems. Costing us dearly in the long run.

Before we sweep shovel and cart those up for use next year (?) we have to first clean up our man-made debris. The empty drink containers are the easiest. At least the newer ones are. Those that have partially rotted away take a little more elbow grease and back effort. Soft drink, take out coffee/tea cups are a constant reminder of how childish or is it ignorant we still are.

It only takes a small percentage of people to make us look bad. 10% do this another 10 does that, another 5 this, depending on our habits and caring/understanding level of what we are doing.

Every income group seem to be responsible for their own type of pollution! The wealthy have theirs just as the poor and or the cheated and sometimes it is just cultural or just plain ignorance! Education and leadership is what is needed, something our selected by those who control do not seem to know how to do! Vision-less so many or most are.

I condemn both those in the well off countries and poor for their overall behaviors.

After that we have the papers,  plastics, metals and let us not forget the cigarette butts and packaging. Maybe it is because I live in a somewhat low income neighbourhood. Their addiction is their escape from the life they perceive and/or even that we created.

Here children these are called cancer sticks. We created them and now they are part of our economy so they have to remain! They help the need/demand for more machinery, foreign manual workers, researchers, scientists, doctors and other related inter-grated jobs like, insurance, banks, investors, police….

Soaking in their own misery while at the same time helping  a few employed and others get wealthier so they can pollute by their polluting habit like flying many many many thousands of miles every year.

Most see nothing wrong with flying. What pollutes more, a smoker who burns half pack a day or one who takes a yearly flight half way around the world for a weekend jolt?

Yap, if Mr. Bob Crackhead would let the weather help guide him, the roads and public areas in the city of Toronto would be clean tonight!

Rain tomorrow, another 10 tons of sand will go down our sewer systems.

We needed that community clean up war to have begun yesterday!

Every resident should have been involved for at least two hours each!
