Court Rules City Must Clear Snow From Alleys, Laneways

An Ontario court as ruled that the City of Toronto must clear snow from its alleys and laneways.

The Court of Appeal upheld a lower court decision that found the city “grossly negligent” in removing snow from a laneway near the Greenwood subway station in 1999.

A woman slipped and broke her wrist near the TTC facility, and sued.

According to the Toronto Sun, plowing the alleys and laneways will cost $21 million a year.
