LETTER: Please clean up the garbage

However, 50 feet away, toward Josephine, is a private garbage dump, with an art walk sign in the centre of it.

I look at the mountain across the lake every morning during coffee.

I’ve lived on Victoria Street since the Kerr [apartments] were destroyed. My kitchen looks onto the lane between Victoria and Baker.

I am right downtown and one building has been painted with professional graffiti very beautiful, as it is part of the Art Walk.

However, 50 feet away,  toward Josephine, is a private garbage dump, with an art walk sign in the centre of it.

I called the city, and the city person took a look and agreed it was terrible and called the fire department.

One propane bottle was discarded. Many mornings I watch a truck pull in and add things to the pile of garbage.

I have to recycle and dispose of my garbage. Because he is a building owner is he exempt? How embarrassing watching tourists follow the art walk signs and point at the mess.
