‘When did we stop caring?’

I guess this is a bit of a sound off at the dumping going on of grow-op trimmings and soil.

I guess this is a bit of a sound off at the dumping going on of grow-op trimmings and soil.

I like to enjoy the beautiful settings that we have in and around Chilliwack. Such things would be our two rivers: the Vedder and Fraser.

Each are very important to this area. They support all kinds of business and recreation.

It’s become very evident the growing drug industry in Chilliwack from the evidence we’re finding on back roads, dikes and river trails.

Either direction you head, either river grow show mess, stripped insulation from wires, roofing waste, building debris and common yard waste and even the odd car.

When did we stop caring? When did we stop reporting these incidents?  Why do we let them get away with doing these detestable things?

Isn’t there anything the police can do? The city? Neighborhood Watch? Citizen Patrols?

Just a sad mark for Chilliwack. Even sadder is that some individuals are breaking the bags apart to see if there is still useful drugs inside.

A terrible mess.
