Senior Snow Removal

Bernie LaRusic

This week a quick thaw, followed by freezing temperatures, has made clearing the hard packed snow difficult.

Many CBRM residents do not shovel their sidewalks but wait for municipal plows to do the job and now a Cape Breton seniors organization is encouraging the municipality to help elderly residents with their snow clearing.
