 Which Canadian City Wants You To Adopt A Storm Drain And Give It A Name?!!

We’ve met dumb and dumber, but how about dumbest?

Yup… brainiacs in Regina, SK, Canada, have come up with this winner. 

storm drain


REGINA — If you’re looking for something fun to do outside this spring, why not adopt a local storm drain?

The City of Regina has launched a program to encourage residents to adopt one of 22,000 storm drains in the city.

The drains take rainwater off the streets, and dump it directly into Wascana Creek and Lake. Keeping the drains free from garbage and debris means a cleaner Wascana, which is better for fish and wildlife.

According to Kurtis Doney, the city director of water and waste, open catch basins also help the storm sewer system function as intended and environment.

“Storm drains are there to ensure streets reman free from flooding and protect property. So when a storm drain becomes plugged, it can very quickly flood a street and surrounding property during a major rain storm event,” said Doney.

If you adopt a storm drain and give it a “grate” name before the end of May, you’ll be eligible to win a prize from the city.


And surely, this is an example of the utter lack of imagination, excitement and creativity, that would make the city experience, enjoyable and fulfilling… sadly, Canada, not a real country but a colony, is often the fallguy, for leadership that fails and fails again… is it by design? Are they trying to destroy canadian nationalism? Why attack churches? Why attack the people?  Why attack at all… is this the sign of a loving society? Why are they constantly trying to dumb down society?  These cities could be lush with fruit trees and gardens… instead they plan for people to befriend the storm drains… you can’t make this stuff up!
