20,800 flushes can’t be wrong

Automatic public toilet

The CBC is reporting that the City has decided to install more of the automatic public toilets provided and maintained by CBS Decaux.

“Although the toilets have been criticized as smelly havens for drug users and homeless people,” – who by? How can they be havens when they cannot be occupied for more than 12 minutes? Since they clean themselves, as well as getting a cleaning crew visit 4 times a day, they are not smelly either. And how is it that what works in other cities can never be accepted here?

There is a desperate shortage of public facilities in this city, especially downtown. And the constant harping on about street people should not be an excuse for never doing anything for the rest of the population.
