So we've just given up on snow clearing?

Posted By on Mon, Mar 4, 2019 at 6:10 PM

Seriously. When a snowfall warning comes up on Environment Canada's forecast, common sense says "ready the plows!" Instead, today, as with most other snow days in the city, our not-so-trusty snow clearers don't take to the streets until there's already an inch or more of snow on the ground with little or no preemptive salting done beforehand. How hard is it to look on a website, see the little red banner that says "SNOWFALL WARNING!" in all caps, and call in the fleet to prepare? There's no excuse. Are you not being paid enough? Are all the plows having mechanical troubles? Do you not have access to the fucking weather forecast? Okay, fix that shit when it's NOT winter and you aren't expected to get off your ass and do your job. There shouldn't still be completely unplowed streets more than four hours after the snow starts sticking to the ground. Get your shit together.
—Honestly baffled that this is STILL a problem
