Bondith: The saga began last February when Desaulniers cleared her snow onto the main street outside her house.

She deserves everything that happened to her.


She deserved to be fined, which the city threatened and is the established recourse. If she deserved some asshole pushing twice as much snow and damaging her property, that would be the law. Plow man should've let her eat her $2,000 fine and move on.

AndreMA: "tying up the courts over such a small amount of money"

He'd rather that she tie up a different court with "leaving the scene of a property damage accident"?


That's not an accident. When you do it on purpose, it's "vandalism".

Mattyb710: Isn't small claims court there specifically for cases involving such small amounts? Not sure why the moron would say she's "tying up the courts over such a small amount of my money".

tentaculistic: Woman hand-clears snow from driveway into street. .. big truck with a snow plow pushes all her snow back into her driveway, backs up, gets more snow, pushes that into her driveway and into her yard... pushes so hard that it barricades her door gets and breaks her gate and fence.

I don't understand her potential fine was $100 to $2,000 for just shoveling some snow into the street, but the bully of snow plow guy who harassed her and damaged her property only had to pay $300. Dollars Canadian!!

Then the bully of a driver has the nerve to say that she was overreacting and the amount of money she's asking for isn't worth the time in court??

Señor Plow no es macho.

Back to the story, why do people insist on snowblowing their driveways into the street after the plows have finished? It happens all the time near me and annoys me to no end. I get it if the plows haven't come around yet, but otherwise it sits in the street and turns to ice.


That's two problems: If it's snow from the driveway, it's because they're selfish assholes who can't or won't keep the snow on their own property where it belongs, and/or can't be bothered to carry it across the street properly and dump it in the place that's been set aside for that purpose. Push it across the street if you must but please clean up your mess afterward. .

If it's snow from the plow ridge then it's already on the street and it's officially still the city's problem. The homeowner is just moving it from one part of the roadway to another which isn't a problem in most jurisdictions as long as it's not done "with overt dickitude or recklessness as to the douchebaggedness aforethought".

Came here to say this. Plow guy overreacted in the douchiest of ways to a slight against the city that hired him, which he was able to fix by turning the steering wheel and straightening his ankle slightly. Instead he deliberately damaged her property during some kind of moral outrage crusade, and she had every right to sue him and the city to fix what he broke. The amount of money involved doesn't enter into it.

Yeah, after reading more closely, causing property damage wasn't cool.  Plowdude should have stopped at pushing her snow back into her driveway.
