City prepares to clear early snow

This is the first time in 36 years the city has had to launch a snow clearing operation so early in the season. We got between 12 and 17 cm of snow around town and the city says it’s ready, but as usual, some drivers have to relearn to cope. Buried in CTV’s coverage of the story below – about new salt trucks and other means of tackling winter – is the fact that most of the city’s snow contracts only start on November 15.

A very few schools are closed and a few flights cancelled.
