Slippery sidewalks lead to fines for some homeowners

The bitter cold weather and mix of ice and snow have lead to very messy sidewalks and streets in Toronto, resulting in a lot of slips and falls.

Emergency Services say they have received dozens of calls about falls and broken bones as a result of layers of snow and ice coating city streets.

Property owners have about 12 hours to clear their sidewalks after a snowfall could receive a fine of $125 for failing to so.

The city said they have issued 200 warnings and handed out dozens of fines to residents who haven't cleaned up the snow and ice.
