March 31, 2012 4:00 p.m. Weather 12 degrees, thick dark cloud gathering and threatening rain.
It’s midnight and I decided to upload a quick clip. First thing this morning, I wrote a letter to Tim Coldwell of Chandos Construction. I intended on visiting Chandos on site at the South Fish Creek Recreational Association, but thought I should scope out the website first of all. It was at this viewing that I decided to contact Tim, Vice President of Corporate Accounts in Calgary, directly. It was less than minutes from the time that I wrote down my concerns, that I received a very thoughtful response by telephone and we have agreed to meet regarding the matter of the less-than-successful clean-up after this recent project. He is adamant that this situation be used as an educational tool and we will be discussing the matter very soon. I was very disheartened yesterday, but am feeling optimistic today. Thank you, Tim.
What remains at the site anymore is ‘small stuff’ and I am not able to fill an entire bag in an hour. It is a very time-intensive experience now…countless plastic straws, bottle caps and packages, along with new plastic bags and fast food containers that that day’s lunchers toss onto the ground.
