Re. Eagle Agecoutay’s predicament trying to get to Hope for medication Jan. 4, where his road wasn’t plowed after repeated phone requests to District Hall and finally as I understood it, the ambulance was called as it was about 5 p.m. and then the plow came to let them in. I sympathize.
The tone reminded me of an award-winning Netflix movie called I, Daniel Blake which was about a man who battles the bureaucracy.
The man in this case in Hope suggests common sense should have prevailed and I agree.
However, as usual the District has a protocol which can’t be undone. Sadly, common sense gets trumped.
P.s. District advises parking on street not a good idea as it obstructs snow removers. However, I am blocked in my garage as my laneway is historically never cleared.
I’ve been snowbound since before last Wednesday when I prepared well for the big snowfall but being a partially disabled senior dependent on my car, I need to get to doctors and am a caregiver for a family member who waits for the snow in Hope to melt so I can help him.
