Nelson Snooks is protesting the pushing of snow on his property in Corner Brook.
Nelson Snooks, a Corner Brook senior with a lung and heart condition, is taking his quest for a snowclearing reprieve public.
The access point to his property at the end of McLeod’s Lane is continually buried by city snowclearing equipment, according to the man who can be seen outside the municipal depot today protesting.
He uses the place at McLeod’s Lane, which he does pay taxes on, to paint and carve. He said he has been trying for years to plead his case to stop plow operators from pushing the snow high in that area — eight to 10 feet at times, he claims.
Snooks says he can no longer physically remove the snow.
