A couple weeks ago I spent over an hour and a half outside the front of my #TorontoCommunityHousingCorporation building picking up cigarette butts. (No worries I had gloves on.) Why would I do this? Because I want to reinforce the notion that #TCHC needs to go smoke free ASAP. Every one of those butts represent the possibility of a fire. What's even more interesting is the amount of time it took for that many butts and the crack pipe to appear on the tiny parcels of land that make up the front lawn. Given that the sod was just placed in the late fall 2018 and I collected them at the end of April 2019 that's just a six month accumulation. The small sections of lawn I picked these butts up from is right on front of the daycare. Yeah, that daycare. As if that's not bad enough they want to turn these small grass patches into an infant play space. Good luck with that!
