A reader called with a suggestion after hearing on radio Corner Brook Mayor Charles Pender asking residents to phone a number to report potholes in the city.

“I suggest the mayor ride around the city himself. It wouldn’t take long for him to see for himself where the potholes are,” she said.


A Corner Brook resident says he wishes a plow would do some cleaning on his street when the sun is shining and water is running.

“My street is covered in ice and is full of ruts. One pass of a plow on a warmer day would clean it off for good.

“It would be a good job for those operators to fill in some slow times when they aren’t battling a blizzard,” he said.


A local driver was happy to see some work being done on Corner Brook’s West Street filling in the craters on the street in front of the Greenwood Inn and Suites.

“My joy was short lived,” he said. “It wasn’t long after the tractor and workers had left that the holes were back ... and I would say worse than before.

“It’s time to do more than fill the holes with gravel and pray for spring,” he said.


A Corner Brook man says he’s amazed at the way drivers hurtle around on city streets as soon as the sun shines.

He says Saturday was a pleasant spring day for a change, except for the “race car drivers” he had to watch out for.

    The snow clearing this winter was terrible. Junks of ice every where on our streets. I believe its caused by the way public works clear our streets and which contributed to large ice issues developing. The most pot holes ever. Our road infrastructure is very poor and in need of extensive repairs not just pot holes filled. We go thru this every winter. When are the Mayor and council going to wake up and formulate a plan to fix the aging infrastructure instead of pandering to sports groups and the arts community?
