Let's use Servus Place in next snowstorm

Fellow citizens:

I believe that I have come up with a novel winter solution for our next major snowstorm. During my travels on our treacherous roads after the last storm I discovered the best-cleared area was the parking lot at the Servus Place Recreation Centre! Who knew? Now, the main roads going to and fro were not that good; my own road, a bus route, was difficult, my friends were snowed in they were joining with their neighbours to push out cars from crescents.

So how about we get the City of St. Albert to designate that parking lot as a mobile living area for people who have to leave St. Albert while they are clearing the snow. Just get some of those heavy-duty army camping tents, Im sure the local base would oblige. This could even provide the military with a special winter exercise. The rec entre has washrooms and showers you could maybe take your dog and test out the area adjacent where they are going to place a dog park.

This could give the city the week to clear the snow that is obviously needed. I mean if they find it difficult to do anything for the first three days like last time they would not feel so pressured. So, if you like this idea I would be more than willing to start a petition, just let me know!
