The shear mass of trash removed from this site was mind-boggling! Thank you to the efforts of those who gave their time to help clean up this mess (and for those who were paid by our tax dollars, as well  ;) ) Between helicopters and rcmp and security and clean up crew, I cannot imagine what this cost, but would wager upwards of $100,00 not to mention the price paid by local residents and fishermen being ripped off and broken into. Hope to not see this again next year.
Also it was a joy to finally meet you today, Mr Gadsden. Iíve read your posts for years with admiration and expected to eventually cross paths... next time hopefully in a quiet run with a fish on your/my hook  ;D cheers

Enjoyed the chat too, what a lovely day to be out fishing.I have a number of pictures on my FB page and 2 video I filmed of the cleanup.. Will put the link up tomorrow as some people I know are not on FB. I think this is the correct Global news video from today. https://globalnews.ca/video/3901882/major-cleanup-of-homeless-camp-in-chilliwack
