Stop blaming the Wrong Things

Three things that people blame the wrong party for that really annoy me:

1. Tim Hortons cups on the ground- Tim's has nothing to do with the garbage on the ground. They are not responsible for everyone's inability to put their garbage in its place. There's plenty of other litter on the ground, it's just that the coffee cups are the most recognizable, especially at this time of year when everyone's on their "roll up the rim" frenzy and get pissed because they didn't even win a doughnut. No shop, cafe, restaurant or any other retail outlet is responsible for what their customers do after they leave the store.

2. VLT addictions- VLT's are an inanimate machine. They do not cause addictions. Getting rid of them will not make an addict stop gambling. A gambler will simply find another means of feeding their addiction.

3. Twinning highways is the best way to stop highway deaths from accidents. Well, sort of, but really, the best solution is to do something really radical, like umm, driving the speed limit. Any of these highways that have such high accident rates always are proven that the drivers drive well above the posted speed limit. Blaming the road is not the answer. Slow down, people. You'll be less likely to lose control of your vehicle.
