Pee and Poo - the Unflushables campaign's two new mascots - visited the Waterfront SkyTrain Station April 1 to get the message out that only pee, poo and toilet paper should be flushed. The campaign is trying to raise awareness of seven products in particular that should not be flushed down the toilet as they can cause blockages: wipes, dental floss, hair, tampons, condoms, medications and paper towels. Whether they're for cleaning, hygiene or babies, all disposable wipes belong in the garbage after use.
Now, the dynamic toilet duo are set to spread their flush-worthy knowledge throughout the region as they embark on a multi-stop tour. As a result, campaign leaders hope that the playful pair will spark a conversation about the proper disposal of unflushables. Lopez added that face-to-face campaigns have a much further reach, which is why the mascots will visit municipalities across Metro Vancouver over the spring and summer.

The waste management campaign was incorrectly attributed to The City of Vancouver instead of Metro Vancouver. Reactions to the pair have included jokes, insults, and disgust at the explicitness of the characters. A sardonic tone underlies the spectrum of reactions, with everyone wondering if the region really needed to resort to such a childish campaign.
Well, it's time to find out, as we attempt to put a letter grade on how the week that was affected certain individuals, groups and inanimate objects. Grade: A.

Also known as: Faeces, stool, excrement, ordure and several less polite alternatives. Oh, but it varies, not only colour but also in shape and size. I find patronising baby talk quite difficult to read. Tough luck.
According to Metro chairman and Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart, clogs caused by non-biodegradable waste such as dental floss, hair, feminine-hygiene products, condoms and even so-called flushable wipes cost the region millions in repairs and labour each year. Now, Pee and Poo are definitely no Miga and Quatchi. But this is about sewage, not sports, and while trotting out an anthropomorphized turd and a walking urine droplet may seem like a curious way to raise awareness about waste treatment, Metro is hardly the first to turn to huggable, flushable characters.
