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
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.
