BC man fills up for gas in garbage bags

News 1130 is reporting that a BC man was seen in Bellingham, Washington filling up  gas in black garbage bags. Yep, you read that correctly, a garbage bag. I don’t care what GLAD says about their bags being spill proof, this is unsafe. 

The incident took place at a Fred Meyer station. Had it been Costco and we might have seen another round of complaints from our American neighbours (see Bellingham Costco residents complaining about rude Canadian’s and their obsession with milk).

Gas should only be filled up in approved consumer fuel containers, not black garbage bags.
