Still shovelling at 91

  • Print

I was sitting at the bus stop on Grant Avenue and Thurso Street when I spied a man walking towards me. He was carrying a couple of shovels.

We spoke briefly as I watched him clear the snow the snow plows had piled up around the bus stop.

He informed me that this is something he does often, clearing the snow from this bus stop, the cross walk and the bus stop on the other side of Grant.

In the spring, he clears the water that builds up at the two sides of the cross walk.

I was impressed, to say the least, especially when he revealed to me that he was 91 and was unsure how much longer he could continue to do this.

I did not get his name, but I want to say "Thank You" for making my life, and the lives of countless others easier by his performing this "above and beyond" task.
