Wacky Wed, er...Thursday

Did you know that the city of Ottawa is not only digging in your pockets, they are digging through your garbage as well? Check it out:

City Conducts 'Waste Audits' Checking Your Trash

You may not have known it, but the city conducts random inspections of garbage bags and recycling that you put out at the curb.
The city calls it a "Waste Audit." It's an effort to review all materials that are put into the bags that we toss out and it was never announced that it was going on.
The city's Manager of Solid Waste Services is Anne-Marie Fowler. She told CFRA News that it is not an invasion of privacy. Fowler said "Once you put your waste at the curb it's the city's waste."
Fowler added that the program exists so they can check to see what is being thrown out, to find out what waste is being put into programs such as recycling, yard waste or even into your typical garbage bags.

So we have language police, and now garbage police? What's next? Inspectors in the sewer checking what's coming down from your toilet? (maybe they could hire this guy...)

What I'd really like to know is - with this kind of investigative genius working for the government, how are the Liberals getting away with all their fraud, corruption, and scandal?

That is the key phrase: "working for the government"

You can't get away with so much as jay-walking, but the "government" can break (or change) any law they want.

Sucks to be us!
