I hope the Communities in Bloom judges never travel to Stettler on Highway 12 from the east or Highway 56 from the north.
They will see kilometres of graffiti-filled grain cars, along with toxic tank cars with their dangerous goods.
Procor claims to work for the improvement of peoples’ lives and the environment, while striving to do no harm.
Some of those tanks have dead grass under them. This is along a spring stream that runs past many homes.
People along Highway 12, plus people passing to and from Stettler, have had to put up with this visual pollution for 11 years.
It has even been longer for Highway 56 residents.
Alberta Prairie Railway Excursions haul and store those cars. Some are within metres of peoples’ homes.
There must be some rail track that would be less visible to residents and the travelling public.
