An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
SINCE EVERYBODY else has ideas on what to do about snow removal, I may as well offer my own two cents.
In a column a few days ago I took a friendly dig at urbanites for not counting their snow-removal blessings but I have a couple of serious observations.
If there’s a deficiency in urban snow-clearing, it’s in the detail. For example, the windrows-in-the-driveways issue has been raised every single winter for decades, and nothing is ever done about it. The reason is cost.
It’s too expensive to remove those mini-snow banks, say the experts, so get out the shovels. But other cities do it.
