If what Environment Canada says is true and this summer is going to be a hot and dry one for Toronto, then I have to say I'm glad Toronto got its garbage strike out of the way last summer. Had temperatures regularly been above thirty degrees, turning the garbage piles into boiling, festering mounds of waste, I'm not sure if the City would have made an agreement with the union sooner but it sure wouldn't have helped with the general public. Things are still on edge between the public and the unions as it is.
It's not as if the general public is blameless, though. After all, that garbage on the street had to come from somewhere - and it's not as if the garbage was piled so high around this receptacle that they couldn't understand its message.
