Too much trash - J. Towns

Ah, spring is in the air, birds are everywhere and .....garbage is everywhere.Wasn't it great how all that snow hid everything.

Ah, spring is in the air, birds are everywhere and .....garbage is everywhere.Wasn't it great how all that snow hid everything.  One sighting that is particularly disturbing is the garbage left on the ice after people have spent a glorious day outside enjoying winter and the beautiful, pristine nature that surrounds this area. 

One only has to remember the number of huts on Simon and McCharles Lakes to understand how this garbage issue could affect those small and fragile lakes. Simon Lake is already in distress. Does that give us the right to completely disregard it?! 

Not all the fishers are to blame. However, the amount of garbage my family saw, and were able to retrieve, was disgusting.  I can only assume these are callous people, oblivious to the precarious future of the Earth for their children and grandchildren. Otherwise, wouldn't they help look after our precious lakes? 

Why would they want to be fishing and, polluting what they're fishing for, all at the same time? I hope next ice fishing season is cleaner.

Oh, and wake up people. Tim Hortons is not responsible to come and pick up your cups!!!

Not on the side of the road, not on the lake, not anywhere.  Let's all do our part-we have to live here.
