Clean up garbage foul­ing the canal

Ottawa Citizen - - OPINION -

On Mother’s Day my hus­band and I walked from the Na­tional Arts Cen­tre down the path by the canal to the Ot­tawa River and con­tin­ued along be­hind the Par­lia­ment Build­ings.

I was ap­palled at the amount of garbage and de­bris float­ing in the Rideau Canal and at the junc­ture of the canal and the river.

Surely the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Com­mis­sion can af­ford to hire a team of stu­dents who do noth­ing but scoop and clean garbage and de­bris from the river to Dow’s Lake from the be­gin­ning of May un­til the end of Oc­to­ber.

Clean up one of your most valu­able as­sets so that lo­cals and tourists alike can en­joy it. Louise Ste­wart, Ne­pean
