Woman wants half a million for ice tumble

A Rivière-des-Prairies woman who fell on an icy sidewalk a year ago is suing the city for nearly half a million dollars after she broke her ankle in three places and may have permanent consequences from the injury. (The CTV link is from a year ago.)

She says her sidewalk is just as bad again this year.

(There’s no denying sidewalks have been bad this winter. I took a classic misstep and fall myself on Wednesday, on Jarry.)
