PENINSULA LETTERS: Smokers littering Sidney’s sidewalks

Having just returned home from my morning walk along the Sidney waterfront, I was put off by the increasing number of cigarette butts on our streets and our beautiful waterfront walk.

People walking their dogs have to pick up after their pets, so why not have smokers pick up their own cigarette butts? How come it doesn’t occur to smokers that they are littering the sidewalks?
