    Monday May 10/2021 6:00 p.m. while traveling westbound on Hwy 231, I noticed a lot of smoke blowing from the north side towards the south side, actually impeding visibility for vehicular traffic. There were several (6 or more) bales? burning in a farm field northwest corner of Hwy 231 and Road 16E.

    Sadly, there were also a few nesting cranes obviously being displaced by this smokey fire.

    To add further insult, a man on the north side of Hwy 231, further westbound and closer to the cemetery at Road 15E was burning garbage in a barrel. He may have thought he wouldn’t get noticed in the smoke from the farmer’s field?

    We don’t want another Sandilands disaster people. Smarten up!
