Forget the doggie do-do, pick up the litter

There's way too much litter strewn around Ferry Island

Dear Sir:

I would to respond to the April 4, 2012 letter to the editor from the person who is so offended about doggie doo-doo on Ferry Island, and dogs not on a leash running up to people.

A simple solution is to walk only in the “Dogs-On-Leash” areas of the park or elsewhere in town where dogs are not permitted, or in the bush. Ferry Island is for all of us, including our four-legged friends.

As for the doggie poop – at least it decomposes, unlike the unbelievable number of fast-food containers strewn about our town. Keep your eyes open and step around it the poop: it’s feeding Mother Earth.

And next time you see a DQ plastic frostie vessel, a McD french fry carton, an empty cigarette pack or a Timmie’s coffee cup – pick it up and deposit it in the nearest recycle bin.
