Ed­i­tor The Drumheller Mail

Dear Ed­i­tor;

I would like to draw ev­ery­ones at­ten­tion to the garbage on our highways. I ride a bi­cy­cle from Mun­son to Drumheller quite fre­quently. As a slower speed trav­eller on our highways, it is em­bar­rass­ing to me and should be to all Al­ber­tans the amount of garbage that has ac­cu­mu­lated on the side of the road. It is not just the odd driver who throws his beer, liquor can or bot­tle out the win­dow to avoid the fine should he or she be stopped by the RCMP, it is all man­ner of garbage. If I, riding a bi­cy­cle, can find a way to not lit­ter on the side of the road surely the rest of us who are in cars and trucks can hold on to our garbage un­til we get home. As for those drink­ing and driv­ing I encourage you to seek help for your ad­dic­tion. If you can­not re­frain from con­sum­ing mind al­ter­ing sub­stances be­fore driv­ing you have a prob­lem. Let us all do bet­ter and clean up or bet­ter do not mess up this beau­ti­ful Prov­ince. It is not the job of the boy scouts, 4H or any other ser­vice group to clean up af- ter us. You are ei­ther an adult and can clean up af­ter your­self or you are not.
