Only put out garbage on morning of collection

Thousands have been spent to educate people about bears

Editor, The Record:

The District of Mission spent thousands of dollars erecting signs stating that we live in bear country. The province spent more money hiring bear aware co-ordinators to educate people about bears.

Why don’t people understand?

The residents of two houses had put their garbage out, along with Rot Pots and pumpkins the night before pick-up.

The bears came up from the ravine and made a big mess. It’s not just the trash strewn about that concerns me, it’s the bears lives. We live in their territory and we have to get along with them. They have every right to live.

Come on, people, get with the program. Stop being so lazy, put your garbage out the day of collection and not before.
