I’m writing about the conditions of the bus shelters in Sudbury, especially the ones on Lasalle.

I’m 85 years old. I was born and have lived here all my life. I have been living on Lasalle for 14 years, and let me tell you, the one in front of my building is the worst bus shelter.

For the past month, a whole side of the shelter has been missing. It’s full of snow. The person who broke it is the guy who plows the sidewalk. Of course he works for the city.

I have phoned the city four times and told others about it. Well, nothing has been done.

Monday morning, I had a 9 a.m. appointment with my doctor. The windchill was in the -30s.

Well, it would have helped me to be able to wait in the shelter, but how could I with the shape it’s in?
I don’t understand why the city is in such a mess. There are a lot of seniors in my building in their 70s to 80s, but I guess the city doesn’t care about them anymore.

And what is the mayor doing? Doesn’t she know that the people that work for her city are not doing their job?

It’s about time people wake up and do something about the bus shelters.
