Overflowing garbage and overgrown grass: Vancity, Not So Pretty

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

When you travel do you compare Vancouver’s cleanliness to that of your travel destination?

How does Vancouver stack up?

Michael Geller says he used to be proud of the cleanliness of our city but in the last few years he has noticed a general decline with weeds and moss growing in street medians and sidewalks. Recently, Michael posted a photo of weeds in the city on Twitter and the photo created a buzz with people sharing his disgust and with others telling him he was uptight about weeds and overgrown boulevards and that he should perhaps get a hobby!

What’s the park board’s budget on this? Do they share Michael’s concerns about the cleanliness of our city? And should people be shamed for tossing cigarette butts and gum on the street?

What do you think? Let us know on Twitter @CKNW and Facebook.

Check out Michael Geller’s photos below and let us know what you think.
