A year or so ago, the City of Langley installed new garbage/recycling receptacles in its downtown core. I applaud the City for having recycling available throughout downtown. If you’ve seen the receptacles, you've seen ads on them which are handled by EcoMedia. Anyway, there is a lingerie store in Downtown Langley and I was shocked to see that the City’s garbage/recycling receptacle right in front of that store have advertising for a lingerie store in Fort Langley.

I know this is a free market, but I find it odd that there is advertising in Downtown Langley that essentially says, don’t shop at this store in Langley City, shop in Fort Langley. While a business should be able to advertise, I would have hoped that Downtown Langley merchants would have cut a deal with EcoMedia to advertise local business, not competition in Fort Langley.
