Shitty sidewalks

So a local paper asks: "Why are we still discussing lousy sidewalk removal?" The simple answer is, for as long as Car is King and non-drivers (taxpayers or not) remain second-class citizens, sidewalks will stay an icy, un-walkable mess. When will Bobcatters realise that plowing sidewalks into skating rinks, without also salting them, is worse than not plowing them at all? And FFS, stop dumping craploads of snow and slush on street corners! Rise up, peds, and demand better from your local councillor!
