Another winter, yet more lousy snow (non-)removal

What a shock coming back to Halifax on the 30th after Christmas holidays to find the city yet again awash in slush, slop, and snow, still not cleaned up DAYS after a storm. Again streets "plowed" 3 feet out from the curb, instead of tight into the curb. Again sewer catchbasins buried so that meltwater can't drain, but floods and freezes causing a hazard. Again mountains of Bobcat-plowed snow dumped on street corners, trapping runoff so that street corners are obstructed and flooded for pedestrians and those using wheelchairs or walkers or strollers. Again snowbanks are shoved up against the rear exits of buses, making those back exits unusable. Has HRM learned NOTHING from last winter?! —I do a better, faster job shovelling it myself
