So one of the large problems facing Montreal every spring as the snow banks melt is that the piles of trash remain on the city streets.
Also this pass year a non-smoking ban went into effect so all the smokers are being pushed outside, even the dances from the strip clubs. So you can image the debris in the streets.
The Mayors office is really pushing for people to do their share and they will even be fining people. The recycle in the city core will now use plastic garbage bags so it doesn't blow away and add to the problem.
A local man took cleaning up the city to extremes when he saw someone emptying their car ashtray in the gutter and has become a local celebrity. I'm sure the litter bugs will think twice knowing that this guy is out there.
