Infrastructure, broken water main, and maintenance | #TOpoli
So I’m walking the dog this morning and at the corner of Humber and Dovercourt there’s an overflowing geyser …
So I’m talking to the city guy, who’s trying to mark it off with orange hazard cones, and he’s calling it in and trying to get a repair crew out here, and they’re telling him, there isn’t one available right now, is it urgent? Can it wait? And he’s all like, are you fucking kidding me? Cutbacks, buddy.
OK, whatever. It’ll go on for as long as it goes on, and maybe another few sewers will get backed up, and a few basements will get flooded, and the road will turn into a slippery sheet of ice, and insurance rates will go up, but hey — we’re saving a few dollars a year on our taxes, right? Because all taxes are evil.
