Sask: CTF picking up the garbage

Striking city workers touched off a bit of a firestorm by placing a bag of garbage on top of the I Love Regina sign in front of city hall. I drove down and grabbed the garbage, put it in my car and drove it to the dump.

When I told the people managing the dump what I was up to they let me drop off the garbage for free.

The funniest part was I was live on CJME at the dump when I dropped it off. The unions say they were making a statement by leaving the garbage on top of the sign. I think we made a bigger statement.

No police around to charge them with littering?

Perhaps none that will cross a picket line. I actually never thought of the fact that littering is actually illegal.

Shawn said...

Probably about $500 fine. That's a fair bit of money when you're on strike pay.

Weren't you trespassing when you climbed on the sign to remove the garbage?
Leave the garbage where it lies, it provides a cozy habitat for vermin.
