On­line com­menters weigh in Re: Snow hap­pens, deal with it, let­ter, Jan. 10 Cit­i­zen

The Prince George Citizen - - Opinion -

sub­scriber101: It’s not sim­ply a mat­ter of not enough equip­ment but good plan­ning is se­verely lack­ing. Where were the city’s plows at 5 am Satur­day morn­ing when we re­ceived 23 cm of snow overnight? They did ab­so­lutely noth­ing un­til 8 a.m. and that is sim­ply un­ac­cept­able. I know this be­cause I had to take a fam­ily mem­ber to the air­port for a 7 a.m. flight and not a sin­gle road was touched. PG_Res­i­dent: Agreed. The City should just back off from prom­ises and ser­vice level agree­ments. They are just set­ting them­selves up for fail­ure.

ndale27: Noth­ing like a lit­tle cheap, ig­no­rant sar­casm to set­tle mat­ters. How­ever, back in the real world, I have a hunch that the vast ma­jor­ity of those who com­plained about the lousy snow re­moval af­ter the storm on Dec. 28 have no less ex­pe­ri­ence with snow driv­ing and the vari­a­tions in the ef­fec­tive­ness of snow re­moval than Pearce does.

The vol­ume and in­ten­sity of crit­i­cism was un­usual be­cause, plain and sim­ple, the city screwed up.
