Was down by the river the other day, been what a week or so since the 'Coastwatch Cleanup'? Well the soap foam washing up on shore and all the used plastic water bottles, beer cans, empty crack bags, Styrofoam bits, old fishing line & hooks, blunt wrappers, etc. should of given anyone a clue as to not go into the Halifax River without hip boots.

I haven't been in since the mid 70's.
The brown tinge to the water say's it all.
