Though friends and collaborators throughout much of the year, when it comes time for the annual cleanup challenge that pits Riverside South and Findlay Creek against each other, the gloves come off.
The communities are gearing up for their annual challenge, and the trash talk is in full swing for the third consecutive spring as Findlay Creek prepares for its cleanup on April 22 and Riverside South gets set to launch its cleanup and festival a week later on April 29.
(...)Findlay Creek is not deploying the same tactic and instead is encouraging people to come out, clean up their neighbourhoods and give Riverside South a run for its money. However, Côté did say that Ecology Ottawa will be at Diamond Jubilee Park the morning of the cleanup handing out tree saplings, while the South Nation Conservation Authority will be giving away shrubs.http://www.ottawacommunitynews.com/news-story/7246108-battle-lines-drawn-in-findlay-creek-riverside-south-cleanup-challenge/
