No, it's not the fact they haven't hiked their gas tax in 30 years, it's the pigeons!
Right now they are thinking of better ways to deal with those dasterdly birds. That reminds me that there is the most beautiful Pereguine Falcon nest at Young's Point, Ontario. They built a platform on top of the highest power pole, and there are cute little birdies! Betcha they take care of the pesty pigeons!
