While the adorable critters can't get into them now, we all secretly know that will change.
This morning John Tory held what was probably his best presser yet, because it involved raccoons.
Today the Public Works committee will most likely award the new green bin contract to an American bidder that boasts a raccoon-proof bin.
While we all know that such a thing does not exist, because raccoons are unstoppable forces of nature, they released a video comparing the old and new bins as proof of their effectiveness.
Will this raccoon hubris be the downfall of Toronto, or is this the part of the movie where we establish how we underestimated our enemy? Will our city crumble when, Houdini-like, raccoons inevitably solve the new bin and use their power for evil?
Probably. It was good while it lasted, Toronto.
