Solving poop

Re: Auren Ruvinsky’s NEWS story about bags of dog poop discarded in Parksville.

After Bentley Dzogan’s photo of 71 discarded bags of dog waste off a popular sidewalk in Parksville, I expect to see a photo of Parksville’s municipality installing a garbage disposal can at this site.

The dog owners did come up with bags and did do the pick-ups. I could hardly believe the article, when the solution is so obvious in both aspects of the word.
