Re: “Council passes clear garbage bag policy, delays votes on more controversial proposals

Friends, Neighbours, Citizens, lend me your ears;
They come to bury garbage, not divert it
The things we dispose remain after us;
Our waste is oft interred in our landfill,
So leave Otter Lake Alone. The faulty Stantec report
Hath told you Otter Lake is expensive:
Yet it is not just burial, it is NOT a grievous fault,
For without it, grievously we would hath answered to it.
There, in Staff, with Butts and the rest;
For Butts, he is an expert;
So are they all, all waste management experts?
Come we to speak out against these changes.
This is our community, free from smells and vermin:
But Staff say it is too expensive;
And Staff are Waste Management Experts?
It hath protected the environment without fail for nearly 15 years,
Whose protections did, the environment’s coffers fill:
Does this in Otter Lake seem expensive?
When other communities cried NO, Otter Lake WE did accept:
Aye deceit, should we not have been made of sterner stuff?
Yet Butts says it’s too damn expensive;
And Butts he is a waste management, expert?
You all did speak at the Community Consultations,
We more than thrice yelled out “Honour the Contract”
More than thrice they refused to hear: is not our community worth it?
Yet Staff continues to say, it is too expensive;
And, sure, they are all waste management experts?
We spoke not to disprove what Staff spoke,
But here we were to speak what we know.
All HRM, nae, the world, did love Otter Lake once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then to risk our community and environment?
Please Council! Flee not to brutish beasts,
Staff has lost their reason. Bear with the Contracts and Agreements;
Our hearts are in the landfill there at Otter Lake
And we must pause to form a CSC.
