Dennis Begin – with 11-year-old Bogey – was dismayed to find garbage left in Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest.

Time to organize a cleanup party

I saw the news items about back-to-school parties and the damage they have caused on the North Shore.

In watching both Global and CTV News, I saw the news items about back-to-school parties and the damage they have caused on the North Shore.

The RCMP seemed determined to stop these destructive events.

My feeling was, “…not our kids.”

I was so wrong!

Check out the forested area behind Softball City off 148 Street. I quit counting the discarded beer cans at 200.

The waste also included fast-food wrapping, pop/water and juice bottles, clothing, plastic bags, condoms, many egg cartons, along with smashed eggs.

The sight in this beautiful forest was disgusting.

It is my hope that the student councils from the four local high schools in South Surrey will put their differences aside, get together and clean up this mess.

Dennis Begin, Surrey
