Snow removal: how far can it go?

Radio-Canada talks to Olivier Legault of Vivre en ville about his view that we expect too much of the snow removal process, “On doit mettre l’hiver en dehors de la ville le plus rapidement possible.” The group has a document about living with winter in the city.

I’ve definitely seen a growing chorus of crankiness in social media comments, blaming city hall for the effects of weather on the roads, water mains and life in general. But we live in a climate that can be harsh and, existentially, we can’t be excused all its consequences.
