Record Snow Creates ‘Nightmare’ for People With Accessibility Issues, Says Advocate Urging Better Clearing

Accessibility advocate Darby Lee Young says snow clearing this year had led to some people with mobility issues being stuck in their homes.

A Calgary accessibility advocate says there are people with mobility challenges across the city who are suffering due to the city’s current level of snow clearing, and there are some real consequences.

“It leads to depression. It really hurts an individual’s self-esteem,” Darby Lee Young told the Calgary Eyeopener Monday, of people who find themselves housebound due to record snowfall this winter.
