ILLEGAL DUMPING | TRASHING CANADA (by Harvard Gould)
A 7:25 minutes CBC | VIDEO REPORT
Illegal dumping: Why do so many Canadians trash Canada?
A widespread practice in this country, writes Harvard Gould. It is astonishing what Canadians do in the woods.
Canadians love the landscape and the landscape helps define us. The Group of Seven and other celebrated artists showed the world a country of pristine lakes and glorious forests. Canadians are proud of the country’s soaring mountains and powerful rivers, the unspoiled wilderness a treasure even to those who do not regularly explore it.
But all over this country, people will toss almost anything almost anywhere when they think no one is watching. This isn’t mindless littering. This is deliberate trashing of the landscape, the dumping of vast amounts of household garbage, construction waste and much, much more.
