Letter: I'm actually OK with helping Burnaby clear some snow

Re: Now Burnaby wants you to clear catch basins for it, NOW blogs

My parents lived in Vancouver for 46 years with a catch basin in front of their house. I recall them always clearing out leaves from the Japanese cherry blossom trees and the snow melt.

I never gave it a second thought that this was not their responsibility. I'm not sure if they had experienced a flooding on the front boulevard/lawn early on and this is why they did it? Learning by experience? I can't ask as they've both passed.  

Regardless, thanks for bringing it to the attention of those who want to do something for their neighbours and city. I'm going to go and check ours.
