The snow was cleared on Portage Avenue, for which I am grateful. But as often happens, mounds of snow were left in front of openings such as driveways, side streets and sidewalks.
I want to commend the young man who, while stopped at a red light on Portage Avenue by the CNIB building, put his four-way flashers on and got out of his car to assist a visually impaired person get over one of these mounds in front of the sidewalk in order to cross the avenue.
Realizing others would encounter the same treacherous obstacle, he retrieved a shovel and cleared a path.
What a wonderful and thoughtful young man! This winter may have been cold, but the people are warm and caring.
