not everyone is lazy. some people are physically unable to shovel (snow angels is news to me). some people might be out of town when it snows. some people might have a midterm to get to the morning it snows. far too many people are unreasonable ("it's just going to melt anyway!"). the rest are lazy... haha.

a snow clearing service would ensure that all the sidewalks are clear. yes, this would increase greenhouse gas emmissions, but i think sidewalk safety trumps that issue. we could also just increase bylaw enforcement.

an important consideration is the salting of streets/sidewalks, which is very important (thems sidewalks are slippery after thems been cleared). salt is very damaging to the environment and there are more harmless ways of accomplishing the same thing. more $$ of course... typical.
