No pride in neighbourhoods?

On my morning walk today I realized how obvious it is that schools are back.

On my morning walk today I realized how obvious it is that schools are back.

Sadly, the evidence is the amount of fast food trash which has been tossed from cars or just dropped.

Last year, I saw some local students on “garbage pickup”  sessions, but there seems to have been no overall improvement in the littered sidewalks.

Do people have no pride in their neighbourhoods anymore?
