A tip of the hat to ‘Bottle Bill’

Local resident shows appreciation to 'Bottle Bill'.

I would like to sing the praises of my friend “Bottle Bill”.

Bill works hard to gather many of the pop cans and plastic bottles that would normally go in the landfill in the downtown core.

No one walks this earth a saint, and the gossip line tries to confirm this daily. But what the gossip line also does is try and destroy people’s reputations. With lies and half truths.

Recently I heard an attempt on Bill’s reputation and it provoked this letter.

Personally, Bill has found my stolen helmet and has treated me with respect. So kudos to a guy who tries and has a better work ethic than many.
