MLA

. . . after some general yard clean-up, garbage can in hand, stood mauling at a pile of rotting wood wondering how much will it take to rent a truck & when . . . the MLA for the area drove by & jumped out . . . "Am driving around doing a little neighbourhood clean-up. I'll come back and remove that load ." . . . twenty minutes later the back was cleared . . . the school up the hill had ordered a couple of extra disposal units . . . a politician hauling away garbage on a beautiful Saturday morning asking about an opinion on the new arts aid package . . . new meaning to 'dirty politics' . . . wondering about democracy . . .
