Councilor Brad Duguid, chairman of Toronto’s works committee, has proposed drastic measures to cleanup the city to preserve its clean image.
Duguid’s strategy calls for council to pass a bylaw to control the posting of signs and flyers on poles and, at a cost of $400,000, add a third grass cutting to city boulevards. As well, city staff "hit squads" would target litter, graffiti and garbage. He also proposes that the provincial government implement an anti-litter campaign on highways that extend north of the city to cottage country, and that Toronto should implement such a campaign if the province fails to act.
