QB forest butts

A few days ago I walked through the Heritage Forest in Qualicum Beach and was ticked off with all the fresh cigarette butts on the trails.

Some of the cigarette butts picked up during a walk through the Heritage Forest in Qualicum Beach by resident Sterling Stump.

A few days ago I walked through the Heritage Forest in Qualicum Beach and was really ticked off with all the fresh cigarette butts on the trails.

I picked up about 60 butts from the trail that goes from Sunningdale Road thru to St. Andrews Road. The next morning I picked up another 10 from the same area.

What is with these people? A fire in this forest could be devastating and could take out many houses that are close by, including mine.

If this continues I will personally pay for some hunting cams which transmit videos directly to me which I will pass on to the town and the idiots will be charged.

Anyone that does this is beyond stupid and deserve what they get. Anyone that sees this happen should also report it as well.
