Winnipeg downtown sidewalks after the blizzard, one word, treacherous   Leave a comment

It’s been 4 days since the blizzard last week, yet the sidewalks downtown are icy, full of jagged hard snow and in some areas almost impassable. What is the city doing? Waiting for it to melt, that will take another 4 months. Anybody that doesn’t have good snow boots with excellent grips, isn’t athletic and in good shape, will never be able to traverse these snow canyons.

I pity the elderly and disabled people. They can’t maneuver through these obstacle courses. What about people with walkers, scooters and wheelchairs? They are confined to their homes, can’t go shopping or attend appointments. The city has to get its ass in gear and clear these hills and glaciers.

This is a canyon, the little gully to walk on is more slippery than polytetrafluoroethene. Bloody dangerous!

Some disabled person gave up and left the chair, and hopefully called a taxi.

Meanwhile Winnipeggers keep trudging along in -30 windchill weather. They are a tough breed.

The super-tough construction workers keep working in these ungodly temperatures at the True North Square site.
