Although [...]

Council Shamefully Puts Safe and Accesibile Sidewalk Snow Clearing On Ice


Last winter, City Council called for improved standards for sidewalk snow maintenance due to valid concerns raised by residents that Toronto’s current standards are completely insufficient in the downtown and centre of the City.
