Dewey's Comments

In Alberta, nearly every beverage container requires a deposit, including milk and juice containers. All of these can be returned to a bottle depot for refunds. We see people looking through garbage cans, recyle bins, and dumpsters for empties to take back. One presumes most of them are homeless, and/or jobless. I guess it keeps the items out of the landfills (although we do have an excellent recycling/composting program in Edmonton) and provides some cash for those willing to do what it takes to recover them.
Even when I was a kid back in the 70's, we had this. We were horrified when we went to the States and saw all the glass bottles littering the highways.

Isn't that the girl that used to host Anglophenia? So she's doing" Canadian" accents now?

As a Canadian, I'm certainly not offended, but it's quite unoriginal...

I think there are more cats because people treat them as disposable pets. Moving? Leave your cat behind, it can fend for itself. Under the free section in the online classified ads, there are more free cats than old tv units and tatty armchairs combined. Oooh, our cat had kittens, isn't that adorable? Who wants one? We will just let our unspayed kitties wander the neighbourhood to poop in your flowerbeds and yowl under your bedroom window all night.
Now you may think I don't like cats, but I do, very much. It's irresponsible owners that annoy me. (oh yes, it applies to dog owners too, but to a lesser degree)
