Fighting illegal dumping
The provincial government has started a new surveilance program to help towns put an end to illegal dumping. The goal is to keep garbage in the dump - where it belongs - not on the sides of roads or in the woods. The Mayor of Wabush, Ron Barron, thinks the new program is a great idea. The town started it's own program last year, and recently a man caught on video surveillance was convicted and fined. Melanie LaFosse is the municipal enforcement officer with the town of Wabush. She explains to reporter Mike Power how the program got started, and explains how they caught their first offender.
