OK OK. What is it with Western Canada when it comes to snow removal. Both Winnipeg and Calgary have snow removal budgets that are less than the budget to clear snow off the Champlain Bridge in Montreal. Think about this the budget for Montreal is 15 Million dollars for every 4 cm of snow. That is Winnipeg’s budget for one full year. And in Montreal all streets and sidewalks get cleared within 6 hours of snow. Winnipeg waits till it stops snowing and will only clear main roads. Here in Calgary it can take 3 days to have main roads clear and they claim sidewalks are not a priority. No residential streets will ever see a plow. The street around the corner that has about 20 homes on it has a drift that is over the cars, and no one has come to clear the road. What is there was an emergency there is not way an ambulance or fire truck could get down that street. When i went to the movies Saturday night it was like driving off road on a trail that has been abandoning for years. This is ridiculous; there is no reason why the Cities do not clear the roads within hours of the snow. I found out that the city of Calgary only has 18 plows and at least 3 are always in the shop. So 15 plows to clear the whole city. Wow there is more snow removal power to clear the Champlain bridge than there is to clear a whole city. Something seems wrong with that. Even the small community of Candiac where I lived in Quebec would clear roads before people left for work. I think little Candiac had 8 plows and there was only 20000 people living in Candiac. So come on Western Canada learn how to clear roads, maybe there would be less accidents if you did. If you dont want to clear the streets, do what Toronto did get heated streets, most of the downtown core of Toronto has heated streets, it says them major money. Damn Prarie folk.
