This Plow Moving Snow INTO The Street Perfectly Depicts How Done With Winter Montreal Is
This is painful to watch.
Now that we've had a taste of spring, I don't want to think about winter anymore. The sun is shining and most of the snow has melted from the sidewalks (or, at least, this is the case downtown). If I squint I can even pretend that there's no snow left at all.

Snow plow operators have had a really difficult winter, too, thanks to record amounts of snow. And it's obvious that they are sick of clearing snow from the streets. The IDGAF attitude is spreading to these operators, as a video posted to "Spotted: Montreal" demonstrates.
TL;DR A video posted to Facebook this weekend is a good example of how done Montrealers are with winter.
