Across the US and many parts of the world, residents are speaking out against the incineration of waste. Mecklenburg doesn’t deserve a “Landfill in the Sky” either…
Local Canadian Idol Star Releases Song to Help Fight Waste Incineration
Shane Wiebe from Abbotsford, Canada became a local hero when he finished in the Top 5 on the hit TV show “Canadian Idol”. Since then, Wiebe has joined musical forces with his wife Angela as “The Wiebes”.
They have recently added their voices to those opposing waste incineration to stand up for the Fraser Valley’s sensitive air quality. The Wiebes recorded “Landfill in the Sky” (to the tune of “Spirit in the Sky” by Norman Greenbaum) at a Fraser Valley recording studio with accompaniment from other Fraser Valley musicians.
“The point of this song is to remind people that you can’t make garbage disappear. It either goes into a landfill in the ground or a “landfill in the sky”, and dumping toxins into the air we breathe is a really bad idea. We need to get serious about real solutions and stop wasting time on these kind of dangerous false solutions,” said West.
