Snow Shovelling Call for Tonight

After all this snow, Jim Kot is looking for help with the rink:

Looking for shovellers after 6:30 this evening.

Snow Shovelling Critical Time for the Rink!

From: kris.tom <kris.tom@sympatico.ca>

Hi Champlain Park

Urgent request to shovel the the snow that has fallen between 4:00 and 6:00 pm in preparation for the rain.

If shovellers could arrive at about 6:30 pm for about half an hour we should be in good shape to save the rink for the carnival.

Thank you.

Subject: Candle Lighting on Thursday at Westboro bus Station

Hello fellow community members:

The Westboro Community Association is going to light a candle and lay flowers to commemorate those who lost their lives in the horrific bus crash on Jan. 11. We invite you to join us on the platform on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 7:00 p.m. and do the same. There is no ceremony or event; just the community together lighting a candle, laying flowers . . . whatever you think would be appropriate. See you then.

Water Main Break at Keyworth and Sunnymede

I just got back from a walk to find out why there was a large pile of ice at the bottom of our driveway on Daniel Avenue. Turns out the water main has sprung a leak in the middle of the Keyworth and Sunnymede intersection. Water is pouring out of cracks in the road, making a nice little brook about 1m wide and 2cm deep, flowing quickly west down Sunnymede (there’s a slope there). It was flowing into Daniel Avenue earlier this morning and froze up along the gutter side of the street. Since then, city crews have opened up storm drains closer to the leak and have closed off Keyworth, with signs at the Amanda and Clearview ends saying road closed, local traffic only. Keyworth buses have been diverted to Daniel. Thanks to the city crews for their quick action; hope repairs go smoothly.

P.S. The Holiday Craft Show seemed busy when I popped in, they’re open until 3pm today at the Field House.
