Toronto City Workers Strike

Toronto is now at the end of a month long city worker strike that has seen temporary garbage dumps in many of the city parks and outdoor arenas. These garbage dumps sit on the top of city storm sewers and with the heavy rains the city has experienced over the last couple of weeks,
these piles are now leaching any number of horrible substances into the water system. The good citizens of Toronto and elsewhere are taking advantage and dumping everything they can to avoid dumping fees and the city garbage collection limits. What a mess!
