I’m grateful to live in a city where, despite all that’s happening around us, we have the luxury of getting excited over this:
People, if there’s a ploughed space next to where you’re walking, walk on the ploughed space! Yes, I know it’s a bike route and the social rules say you should stick to your designated sidewalk. But it’s okay, really; in these circumstances you can set aside your Canadian sense of the proper order of things in the universe. This time you can do what common sense would tell you to do until, yes, your sidewalk will be attended to and all will be right.
But if you want to play the culture-war card, okay, I get it: It’s an irresistible button to push. But at least appreciate that you live in a place that has the good fortune to do so.
