Posts Tagged ‘Snow Czar Montréal’

Snow removal is a very important, and sensitive, part of the winter here in Montréal. A new Snow Czar has just been appointed, Luis Miranda the mayor of Anjou. This part of Montréal has the best record on cleaning streets and pavements/sidewalks.

As soon as there is 2.5cm of snow on the ground, the snow ploughs come by and clear the streets of snow and leave salt/grit on the road. Pavements are cleared by a small snow plough too so that you can walk along them.

Once the snow fall has stopped, the snow left by the plough will be removed. See the images below to see this in action.

Large stock piles of snow exist around Montréal waiting for spring and summer to come and melt it. After last year’s record snow fall, it was still melting in dumps in August.
