Tossing butts!?

When I got out of my car in the Qualicum Foods parking lot around dinner time Saturday, I smelled smoke.

When I got out of my car in the Qualicum Foods parking lot around dinner time Saturday, I smelled smoke and noticed something smouldering in the hedge, likely a discarded cigarette. Fortunately, one of the Qualicum Foods employees was able to douse it with a bucket of water.

We are hearing predictions of another drier than average summer ahead. We have been watching extensive footage of thousands of terrified people being evacuated from their homes in Alberta with barely a moments’ notice. We see others on evacuation alert due to out of control fires in northern B.C.

So why would anyone cast off their still lit cigarette butt into the bushes? Give your head a shake.
