LETTERS: Steps in the wrong direction
Are we going forward in reverse?
I was talking to a bylaw officer yesterday regarding the changes in the City of White Rock since I moved here in ’81.
We had an underpass to access the beach where the new washrooms are in West Beach, and a pay-per-use dumpster at the works yard for extra garbage, or unusual garbage.
We used to have a once per year pick-up-anything-garbage service, sandcastle competitions and a community.
We currently have limited garbage pickup, my dishwasher is filled with recycling so the rats don’t come, I drive my cardboard to Surrey in my car, and boy, are we green!
Now, the reason the officer was on my street is because a tree-trimming company started a chainsaw, which I can only assume started a speed-dialing frenzy, so we have reverted to a tattle-tale, whistle-blowing, pooch-your-neighbour community.
Nice to see progress in action.
