No Garbage Cans For Miles
This is one of my favourite pieces of graffiti. It is painted on one of two (of course) garbage cans near our house. The first time I saw one of these receptacles I had no idea what it was. They could be anything: a bbq, a table, a piece of equipment for housing electrical utilities. I had the same experience in Calgary the first time I visited that fair city. The garbage cans there are deer/moose/elk/bear proof and thus are askew, with heavy lids.

I have a feeling that no such consideration went into the development of the Montréal waste cans.
