Snow Plows vs Global Warming

Canada is one of the few countries to benefit from global warming. The uncovering of untold natural resources under melting arctic ice, the cold Canadian winters will become warm extended seasons, and finally the money saved from no longer needing sidewalk snow plows...

Well, unless you live in Quebec, then you have to deal with invisible snow.

  • Five bucks says it's some union contract bullshit that guarantees plow drivers so many hours a month... whether there's anything to plow or not.

    BTW..... LMAO @ poutine.

  • We've already been over this. They do dry runs over the course to find trouble areas, and, if needed, even shave down high spots.

    Beats the shit out of hittin' a snag of concrete in the snow to ruin your machine, then having to call out another to finish the job.

  • Most places in Canada cannot afford to do that, or rather most places in Western Canada. The money flows from West to East to support a system that gets to do dry runs.

    In Western Canada not all cities clear the sidewalks. Sometimes it is the responsibility of the home owner or the business owner to keep their sidewalk clear. I should know I've been paid by businesses to do that work, by hand, with a shovel and since it was the only work going at the time I was the lucky one.

    Those Western c More..

      But I do see waste: your comment is a perfectly good example of wasted time, and full as usual of bias against Quebec. We would all be better off without your oil sands' tax money.

    • @donnoshit You would like to think that wouldn't you. Just try to live without the transfer money. You Quebecers would be taxxed to death, and you would not be plowing your roads everytime a tiny amount of snow falls. You enjoy better road clearing than the provinces who send you money.

    • @Jb0713 This doesn't happen in Toronto or Hamilton, both in Eastern Canada. What now?

    • @neosporin No need for dry runs when you can just call the military. :)

  • It's either that or we would pay a whole lot of these fucking old retards doing nothing. Montreal's city workers are a bunch of illiterate high school dropouts making 80,000$ doing these kinds of silly jobs. That's where their unions took us. And with the fucking losses of 2008 (thanks USA), many Montreal residents who have no pension plans of their own will be asked, through city taxes, to compensate these losses and ensure city workers a dandy pension of their own. Makes me wanna puke.

      Yes. I should have said (thanks to subprimes, etc.). Even if Goldman Sacks and FreddyMay / FannyMack were big players, Eurpoe played a big part in the subprime scam.
