Editor: I read with interest (the Times, March 10) about the Langley Peewee A3 Eagles hockey team of 17 boys, aged 12 and 13 who cleaned up 16 km, four rinks, three parks, and two bus loops of 45 bags of litter in two hours.
They are to be highly commended for their work in much less than ideal conditions.
However, I find it disgusting that anyone should have to do that. I can’t understand why people of all ages cannot carry their litter with them to the nearest litter barrel or even carry it home to their own garbage/recycling container.
I hope the hockey team boys continue to grow into thoughtful, caring teens and adults.
