Winter can be very icy and there are many ways to prevent it. [But] the streets are unacceptable, forcing people to go to big box stores instead of small businesses.
Imagine being in a wheelchair for a day and realizing it's really not easy. Trying to get out of a car and being unable to because there are big icy snowbanks on the curb. Even in the handicap parking spots.
I want to support small businesses but I can't because it's actually limiting. Some small businesses I have to go to to get medication, but I have to get others to go for me.
Support workers advise you to be independent but I cannot be in the winter. This town has a large population of disabled and elderly people, so why not have it easier to get around?
Scott Street is a main attraction of Fort Frances. Clear the snow and make it appealing to the eye.
If little towns like Atikokan and International Falls can, so can we.
