Highway litter due to laziness
When I see littering on our Island roads it makes me upset and sad because the root of this problem is based on laziness and ignorance.
It has become such a frequent sight it has basically become an Island summer tradition which is wrong!
I can remember a few years back on a couple of occasions driving a government garage tire truck to Cavendish. Man, what gorgeous landscape I saw on my travels.
It was like I was driving through a Normal Rockwell painting.
Yet my landscape was far from pristine because in the ditches and along the side of the road was everything from Tim Horton’s cups, fast food take-out bags, pop cans and candy wrappers which was a big turn off because here I was a hot sunny summer day, my driver’s window was down, my arm out the window, the open road and one of the most beautiful provinces as my view. I should’ve been in heaven not a trashcan.
Now these litterers don’t realize that legendary music icon Rod Stewart’s bus drove this same route. Do you think he was amused seeing their laziness littering the road? Probably not.
All I’m saying is basically this, if we market ourselves as a beautiful island we should look like one. Evan Larter Charlottetown
