    My Charlotte,
    You can say that again. In comparison with the usual type of garbage there in the Philippines, the garbage here is relatively tidy. I believe, a few often unobserved factors have something to do with this:
    1) Since the weather is very cold, leftover food in the garbage do not rot, thus, do not exude stink.

    2) And because no much decomposition in the garbage, houseflies/maggots and rats are absent.

    3) Since, there is a limit of three plastic bags of garbage for each house, garbage do not accumulate, the garbage collector is able to observe a predictable work schedule.

    4) Lastly, since almost everyone in the neighborhood observes the rules, the sight of garbage becomes tolerable.

    1) There are also neighborhoods here whose garbage can be seen scattered everywhere in the streets.

    2)Walking in the quiet streets, I can still see candy wrappers and cigarette butts, softdrink cans and bottles, as well as tattered newspapers and flyers scattered here and there.

    3) There's a notorious place here known as Hastings, where bums and drug addicts can be seen on broad daylight shooting up drugs.

    Bottomline, like in our country or almost everywhere, I think, Canada has its impressive sceneries as well as its share of dirty and dangerous places.

    In the end, the discipline really emanates from the individual.
