Arsonists, Pyromaniacs, Idiots...oh my!!!

Post by Barney Google »

What the heckus is going on?

Garbage bin fires?

Grass and bushs on fire on Harvey?

Knox grass fire?

Butt throwers and illegal camp fires?

Have we got an arsonist/pyromaniac problem or are there just a bunch of idiots out there?

Haters. Maniacs. Psychopaths. Sociopaths. Attention seekers.

Pick one.

So, what happened to those people near Lumby that had a campfire? Haven't seen anywhere that they were fined but were caught.

Here's more. https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#204322

I wonder if they will be properly dealt with or if it will just be more slaps on the wrist for them. I wonder how many bleeding hearts on these forums will come to the defense of these people and want to "help them" ...

Interesting to note that the wind acts as an 'idiot multiplier instrument'. I'll bet the idiots have been tossing butts out there for weeks. We have not noticed as much due to the calm winds. But last night and today the winds are brisk again. No doubt correlated to the several new fires around here. (Merritt, Kelowna airport, Naramata...)
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.
