ABC Online has the amazing news that our Minister for Police has been forced to send out the park rangers to bring law and order to the charity bins of the town.
Rangers will patrol Canberra day and night as part of the ACT Government’s latest effort to stop people dumping unwanted rubbish at charity bins.
Urban Services Minister John Hargreaves will launch the campaign today and says the rangers will also be able to issue on-the-spot fines to people caught in the act.
If only there were already a force which patrolled the city with sufficient regularity to deter illegal behaviour!
Wait a minute… isn’t Mr. Hargreaves the Minister for a force like that?
