Roads Maintenance

It’s nice to drive on a smooth wide road with minimal traffic, but it’s a hassle to get to that point. Road maintenance is seen at almost every other major intersection in Markham, and is a problem that has many more consequences and risks that might appear. Factors such as:

  • Detours
  • Reduced lanes
  • Cracks in roads
  • Worn down road markings
  • Un-leveling of the roads


  • Increase in traffic
  • Higher risk of accidents

Snow Removal

Being in Canada, we get a sufficient amount of snow per year. When snow accumulates on the roads, and become a danger to those on and off the roads. This results in:

  • Slippery roads
  • More accidents

Therefore, snow plows are dispatched to clean up the snow, yet this service also has many inconveniences attached to it, such as:

  • Plows aren’t out fast enough
  • Few plows cleaning many roads
  • Snow gets pushed off roads on to the driveways

Library Services

The library is an important resource tool for many students in the community. It is used for research, pleasure reading and a study area. Although it seems like the library system works well, there are many flaws to it. Such as:

  • Not all libraries have the same access to books and movies
  • Long waiting lists
  • Disorganized book shelves
  • Difficult to find quiet work areas
  • Physically drive to libraries to pick up/ return books
