The weeds are winningNiagara This Week – Welland
There is a multitude of overgrown weeds on almost every island medium in the Niagara, and the region is looking worse than Detroit, Michigan.
All these overgrown weeds everywhere are a real eyesore and only show tourists visiting Niagara that the Region is broke, and so are the municipalities, since they have no money in their budgets for simple weed control and beautification.
The weed growth on these islands looks just plain disgusting. Niagara is starting to look like one big ghetto, with overgrown weeds everywhere.
With a police budget approaching $400 million annually there is no money left over for any kind of beautification projects in Niagara. That’s right people, Niagara is looking so disgusting because the police force is getting all the money.

Ineffective alternatives and a problem literally growing while time ticks have forced the city to re-think its pesticide spraying policy.
Port Alberni city councillors voted to allow strategic use of the herbicide Roundup at their Monday meeting.
In 2009 the city adopted a pesticide regulation bylaw that forewent non-essential use of pesticides in favour of less stringent options.
But those options don’t cut it, Parks and Recreation director Kenny said.
Parks and Recreation staff tried a vinegar-based product on weeds to no avail.
Manual cultivation methods are too labour intensive.
