LETTER: Annual cleanup still a sad necessity

Just back from an endeavor carried out by FOG (Friends of The Garden), neighbours and concerned citizens.

We got 14 bags of litter, four tires (unfortunately not all the same size), a five-gallon bucket, pieces of siding, etc. etc. (Note: This effort was only from The Botanical Gardens down to the corner with Tim Horton’s.)

The first item I picked up was a full dirty diaper that I was tempted to send for DNA testing (it appeared not to have been there all winter).

I know it’s difficult to enforce but I wish some of the culprits responsible for this garbage could be traced and charged.
