    I traveled from Kilbride to Gower St area at 6pm last night. The roads were not touched, tires were spinning, cars sliding sideways etc. How much notice do the council need to get sanders and plows on the roads?

    Roads everywhere are slippery and i blame the various Councils. St. John's always had a bad reputation but now Mount Pearl is no better. Its November 29 and both areas should have had their equipment ready and able to go. But no, as usual, the first snowfall catches them off guard. Anyone involved in accidents today can put some of the blame on the municipalties. Randy Simms, we always had great snow clearing in Mount Pearl but in recent years under your watch, Mount Pearl's snow clearing is poor. Street cleaning in neighbourhoods is non existent.Mount pearl is a dirty city. Can't wait for the next election to vote ABS Anybody But Simms!
