Letter to Mayor and Council: Cleanup of Hastings Park needed after PNE Fair

Dear Mayor Robertson and Councillor Louie,

Please see to the clean up of Hastings Park following the PNE. A big mess needs attending to.

Also, surrounding Hastings Park there is litter strewn along the roads surrounding the park and the landscaping recently put in is already deteriorating. I am not sure who is responsible for planting maintenance, but blackberries are taking over everywhere and the pathetic Rotary Club Planting is a complete mess. The back of the racetrack was once planted with lovely rhododendrons, long choked by blackberry vines and weeds.

This whole area is becoming more derelict. What jurisdiction is responsible for cleaning up litter? The only ones cleaning up at the intersection of Cassiar and Hastings, are those seeking coins from drivers at the intersection.
