I don't like Bowman. Our front street hasn't been cleaned in 2 years, that's summer or winter. Back lane, not once this winter.


May i ask what part of the city?

They give you a reference number for a reason.  If you are not satisfied, escalate the issue.  Call back, quote the reference number, and then contact your councilor.

Squeaky wheels get greased.
Yep we may need to contact our councillor. We?ve followed up a few times over an almost three year period and nothing.

Too many cars parking downtown, increase will help pay for transit. Theres no shopping really downtown so most people should try taking transit to work and they will save the 3.50 an hour. 99 per cent of the cars have only one person per car. Too easy to fill up the downtown parking. Councillors don't answer the phone anyways and if they did its the secretary who will pass the message on. City councillors don't do what they used to do. I haven't seen mine since election day. The odd time might see them in the district paper giving money to some organization.

Transit is always a great option for people who have direct and convenient routes.  Lots of people need 1-2 connections and can make this difficult.

I've been considering taking my bike to work, but I get concerned about the safety part of it...every year you see one or two people get hit by cars.
