E-M:/ canadians appreciate michigan taking their trash

Enviro-Mich message from Dave Dempsey <davemec@voyager.net>

Canadian letter writers to the Detroit Free Press thank us for accepting 
their garbage -- with tongue in cheek.

Says one: "Congratulations to the people of Michigan. You are about to 
become host to 28 million tons of Toronto garbage over the next 20 years. 
This will be brought to you compliments of a convoy of 250 trucks per day. 
Figure it out folks. That's one truck of garbage crossing your border about 
every six minutes.
We in northern Ontario thank you for your generosity in solving an Ontario 
problem that should have been resolved in our own country."
