Visitor causes lengthy dispute

To clarify for Zachary Wilde, I think I made it abundantly clear it was people who were defecating and urinating in plain view

Dear Editor:

To clarify for Zachary Wilde, I think I made it abundantly clear it was people who were defecating and urinating in plain view and leaving their waste. Pet owners were responsible enough to pick after their animals.

I didn’t want to make this an ongoing issue but the tone of his letter begged a reply.

The amount of garbage left was too much for me to just simply bend over and pick up. The Ponoka Stampede Association cleaned up the mess I was referring to, but it took them two days and they did a fantastic job. They are the ones who make the money from your visit, not me, or most other people, or businesses in this town.

Mr. Wilde, your smug, entitled attitude is revolting and makes me think that your mommy must still pick up after you at home.
