Douglas Channel Watch
Members of the Kitimat Rod and Gun club and Douglas Channel Watch held their Annual Sumgas Creek clean up today Sunday March 24th! Amongst the more interesting items collected besides the usual buggies from Shoppers Drug Mart (because they refuse to use use the coin system for their shopping carts) were an oil boom (?), at least 3 kids scooters, a bicycle, fire extinguishers,shovels, lawn chairs and an excessive amount of Tim Hortons and A&W assorted items. Also this year as we did the clean up earlier, everyone noticed the huge amount of dog feces along the complete stretch of the creek from the salmon ladder behind Kootenay street to the Culvert Crossing behind Okanagan street! We have many responsible dog walkers in Kitimat but it is obvious we also have a lot of irresponsible dog walkers who don’t clean up as there are garbage receptacles along the whole stretch and Kitimat does have a Pooper Scooper bylaw which applies to this area!
