Sounds like a cash grab to me, but the city's defense, as presented by the Free Press, doesn't spell good news for the sacred trough.
London has been slapped with a $1.6-million lawsuit by a man who shattered his ankle in a tumble to the ice during a hockey game at Glen Cairn arena. A statement of claim filed in the Superior Court of Justice in London claims negligence by the city in the January 2004 incident and seeks damages on behalf of Randall Trineer, his spouse, Heather Cushing, and his children, Michael Cushing, 9, and Thomas Cushing- Trineer, 5.Okay, and I should know that there are potholes on every street, and we'll never mind for the moment that they pop up like mushrooms everyday, so I guess that means I should leave my car parked in the driveway and avoid the roads. But I'll have to avoid the sidewalks too, for I am prone to fall on ice and snow and knowing London like I do, expect the sidewalks to be treacherous, the sidewalk snow removal budget taking the back burner to arts and entertainment as it does. So, I'll stay at home, until I have to move to a subsidized housing unit.
