With all the snowfall in Canada lately, it's no surprise that snow removal is a hot topic of conversation across the country.\nAnd with Toronto struggling to handle the storm they had earlier this week, many Torontonians and other Canadians have taken to Twitter to express their desire to be "more like Montreal" in this area.\nREAD ALSO: Torontonians Are Freaking Out About Their "Record" Snowstorm And People In Montreal Can't Stop Making Fun Of Them\nTL;DR According to people on Twitter, Montreal is the master of snow removal, and Toronto has a long way to go to catch up in the snow clearing game.\nTo be honest, I was surprised that I kept coming across these tweets when people in Montreal are often the first to criticize the city's approach to snow removal.\nWhile we are lucky enough to have sidewalk plows, the grass isn't always greener... or should I say, the roads aren't always cleaner.\nMontreal has the best snow removal system in place! Lived it!seen it!\n— DC (@dianacraik) January 29, 2019\nMany of these tweets come from current and former Montrealers who feel our ville has the process down pat.\nWhile it is generally very quick, it's far from perfect.\nand if you have snow removal service which isn't useless, like it is in Toronto, you get your roads cleaned, and if you have actual snow "REMOVAL" like this, you're not living in Toronto, you're living in Montrealhttps://t.co/myonlWx8cE\n— bigaltoronto (@AllanBSportsFan) January 27, 2019\nWe weren't the only ones to get kudos on snow clearing, though.\nOttawa got some shoutouts as well.\nAll streets in Toronto should be cleared of snow ! If Montreal and Ottawa can do it, we can too ! #walkto https://t.co/yGYT9naZge\n— Pink Helmet (@Donnadjap) January 23, 2019\nThe tweet below makes a good point, though, that just because we have those little sidewalk plows doesn't mean they don't pose their own problems...\nLike plowing down an unsuspecting pedestrian, for example.\n"Why can't Toronto plow its sidewalks? Montreal does it!"*one of these comes up behind you going a 100km/h and you have to jump into a snow bank to get out of the way*"OK, bad example..." pic.twitter.com/KZUIYOAmSB\n— Joshua Hind (@joshuahind) January 23, 2019\nEdmonton was also mentioned for their ability to clear the snow and get the city back up and running.\nIt seems Toronto is lacking a system or support to tackle these kinds of storms.\nI have experienced snow storms in all major cities in Canada. From Montreal to Edmonton. Believe me, they are much more organized. We need more crew on the streets before the storm starts and during the storm.\n— Proud Little Monster (@imlittleMonster) January 29, 2019\nThough the tweeter below made a point of reminding people that this wasn't necessarily the case for Canada's largest metropolis.\nThere was a time where in order to deal with the snow, the mayor of Toronto would stop at nothing... including calling in the army.\nIn a meeting today, I cracked a joke about toronto calling in the army to help with the snow....Apparently nobody in montreal knows about our infamous state of emergency in 1999This was 20 years ago!https://t.co/p4zkpAP11U pic.twitter.com/pC87PhiVvN\n— Joe Ching (@joe_ching) January 23, 2019\nWhile that is no longer the case, Torontonians have been relegated to cleaning up the snow themselves.\nA city bylaw stipulates that it is the responsibility of the property owner to clear the walkway adjacent to their land.\nProperty owners in #Toronto's downtown core - remember you must shovel the sidewalk adjacent to you, for all of our safety. I'd be happy to have my property taxes raised to ensure our city could purchase Montreal-style sidewalk snow clearing equipmenthttps://t.co/Lk4rWbICeO\n— Heather J Wood (@rollwithheather) January 27, 2019\nThis is something I wouldn't mind seeing in place in Montreal, too.\nThe sidewalks are truly treacherous in this city, in part because of the sidewalk plows that compact all that snow into a sheet of thick ice that can be straight up impossible for some individuals to traverse.\n@cityoftoronto @TorontosMayor Kingston and St-Clair is a mess. Sidewalks and roads, nothing has been cleaned yet. By far the worst preparations for a snow day. You need to learn from other cities like Montreal, Edmonton and Calgary. #Taxpayers pic.twitter.com/913Mp70UP2\n— Proud Little Monster (@imlittleMonster) January 27, 2019\nThe tweet above makes a great point, though, and that is preparation.\nIf you follow MTL Blog then you always know when a storm is coming, because Environment Canada never hesitates to issue a warning when inclement weather is approaching.\nMaybe if @cityoftoronto had real snow "REMOVAL" equipment like they have in Montreal, we wouldn't need to worry about our roads being covered with mountains of snow due to incompetent snow clearing.https://t.co/myonlWx8cE\n— bigaltoronto (@AllanBSportsFan) January 27, 2019\nMoreover, Montreal does make a point of actually removing snow on a regular basis.\nIt's one thing to push snow out of the way, but eventually, it does need to be displaced so that vehicle sightlines are kept open and traffic can continue to move through the city.\nI gave up hope years ago hoping to see proper snow removal in Toronto. This is how you do snow removal the right way. Watch this video from Montreal.https://t.co/myonlWx8cE\n— bigaltoronto (@AllanBSportsFan) January 20, 2019\nSnow removal in Toronto has always been useless. In Montreal, a real world class city, this is how you do snow removal, the right way. @TorontosMayor @cityoftoronto #onstorm https://t.co/myonlWx8cE\n— bigaltoronto (@AllanBSportsFan) January 20, 2019\nSo, what are your thoughts, Montreal?\nDo we deserve the title?\nOr does Montreal have a ways to go before we earn the right to call our selves the Best in Canada?\nLet us know your two cents.
