Clear Bags—Really!?

Posted on Thu, Aug 6, 2015 at 4:00 AM

I’m sorry, but I take my freedom/privacy very seriously. I appreciate the idea that I am free to choose what I throw out and if I decide to recycle or not. I also very much appreciate my privacy for what I do throw out. I don’t want my next door neighbours seeing what goes on in my house…be it boring or exciting, it’s in the privacy of my home and should not be forced to be on display for others. It’s absurd to me that my rights are going to be taken away from me very shortly and I am forced to adhere to such a policy. I recycle on my own and do not need a parenting government telling me how, when and where. I am a 31-year-old women who should be allowed to make her own decisions in her life…including what is private and what is recycled. NS government, we disagree a lot on many things but this is going over the line and taking my rights as a Canadian citizen away. You are not only taking away my right to decide for myself, but you are forcing me to push my private life to public…and this is unacceptable. Shame on you. —Feeling less free in my free country
