Letter: Trans-Canada Trail is not a garbage dump

Eyesore trash left at east side of Capitol Hill is just the most recent in a string of illegal trash dumps on public trail

Illegal dumping such as this happens several times a year on the Trans-Canada Trail


Someone cheap enough to avoid taking his or her junk to the dump sneaked to the end of the lane on the Trans Canada Trail at the east side of Capitol Hill and left a deposit for someone else, undoubtedly the City of Burnaby, to clean up.

This is not an uncommon event - it happens several times a year. Please remind readers to be responsible citizens. It's not just the eyesore left for us as residents but the idea that it's OK to use the TC Trail as a public dump that is so abhorrent.Their mothers would not be proud of them for being so selfish and irresponsible.
