Editor: I am all for the local committees promoting the small community that I live in. I enjoyed the activities this past B.C. Day weekend that were organized.
The problem I have is this. Every weekend with a large crowd of tourists expected, starting on Victoria Day, it seems nobody plans for the amount of garbage generated by these people. This is the third weekend where I have had to take the overflowing bins to task. I do this because I have civic pride. Others tell me “that’s the Township’s job.” Well, where are they?
What will tourists take away from their visit to our quaint little village? Will they talk about the many ecclectic shops lining Glover Road, or the delicious lunches they enjoyed at our many restaurants, or will it be those overflowing garbage cans on the sidewalks of Fort Langley?
