  4. Vivo em Brasília e nossa capital é vergonhosa! Com um orçamento federal bilionário, enquanto Curitiba ganha migalhas da União, Brasília não tem um plano de reciclagem completo, nem sequer no Plano Piloto! Uma vergonha!
    O transporte público aqui também é ruim e a arborização é quase inexistente, se descontarmos a Asa Sul.
    Curitiba consegue fazer tudo com menos dinheiro! Deveria ser recompensada com aeroporto novo e investimentos federais! Um abraço, João Ramon
