As I read the response from Lyn Hall (about snow removal), I feel that perhaps some people at city hall don't understand the weather in Prince George.
He said we had to deal with 35 cm of wet heavy snow and rain. Well, most of us knew that's what was coming as it was forecast to happen.
As of 4 a.m. on Saturday morning there was not a sand or plow truck on the city streets. I was on Foothills, 5th,10th and 15th Avenues and was pushing snow. Tenth Avenue is a major route for ambulances to take to the hospital and was rougher then most logging roads in the north.
As of 2 p.m. on Saturday, the little area from 20th Avenue to Exploration place and Pine Street were plowed but excuse me is Pine a Priority 1,2 or 3? (Editor's note: both of these streets are priority 2 roadways, according to the city's snow removal map).
Really, what else could the mayor say but we did a good job as he could not nor would not speak out about how crappy the roads really were this last big snowfall. Seems to me the snow removal policy really needs a makeover when the main ambulance route isn't cleared but streets like Pine are.
Remember, we live in P.G. so expect the worse then what is predicted and prepare for it.Also, referring to a snowfall from last year and still having the same complaints, did city hall not learn anything?
