Oppression is not limited to overseas, it’s right here in Campbell River

As I sat watching the television yesterday a story of unrest overseas caught my attention.

Looking at these events I thought to myself, they think they have problems.

Lately our streets have been patrolled by huge blue trucks with men in orange uniforms.

These scary men decide whose garbage should be removed and whose should not.

They seem to have the unknown power of being able to look at our garbage cans and see how much they weigh and how many litres they encompass, then make the decision to take your garbage or not.  

If these men do not take your garbage you are issued the mark of the sticker; this sticker will mark you as a garbage criminal.

People will ridicule, possible even discriminate against you, because you are now a marked trash abuser.  

Like any problem, you can buy your self out of this predicament.

You can purchase and get out of your trash jail ticket down at City Hall.  But this still will not be the end of it; you will still be in the data base and will likely be watched closely.

Anyway, my suggestion is to perhaps find someone with maybe one or two in their family and see if they will let you put some of your excess garbage in their cans.
