The Pepsi Centre is going down the toilet....a small pun, but undeniably true. It's got major, probably fatal economic problems. But sanitation is not one of them. Part of this particular incident is certainly operational....the mess has been sitting there for 3 or 4 days, and that shouldn't happen in any building. But before everyone decides that this another "smoking gun", there is an ongoing, overlying element to this too : People here --- the users of this and every other local public facility ---- are anti-social, ignorant pigs. Not flushing toilets, being too lazy to pick up after yourself, leaving garbage on the floor next to a garbage can.....these are all too common behaviors here. It costs not one penny to eliminate most of this...just some common decency, some social values, and a morsel of respect for other people. The Pepsi Centre cannot possibly hire enough janitors to keep that building clean, simply because of who the users are. There is not enough money in the world to neutralize such idiots. And Corner Brook is bursting at the seems with them.
