Bravo To The Butt Pickers

Yesterday, a group of community volunteers performed their annual clean up of Grandview Park by picking up and disposing of more than 21,000 cigarette butts, several thousand more than last year.

The organizer Alexandria Weiderman notes that alleviating the environmental hazards posed by the toxins in the butts is just as important as the beautification the program brings us.

Thanks to the volunteers for doing this, and thanks to the CBC for covering it.
