    Snow? Those Montrealers don`t know snow. Come here to Newfoundland, then we`ll talk...

    it`s a practice run. this way when it actually snow they will do less damage to the sidewalks and front yards.

    It`s a Union Rule: We get paid to plow, snow or not!

    Actually @studioso may have a point. I was thinking they were looking for `bad spots` too. But to look in December? Fixing them would be almost impossible (before the real snow came I mean).
    I`d also have guessed "training" but no sign of observers and, again, it`s kinda late in the year for that.
    Unions, until proven otherwise...

    My guess is that they`re checking for defects in the pavement so they can fix them before they damage a plow.

    Cannucks may not be the brightest bulbs on the tree, but at least in the Great White North they know something about snow. ;-)

    the u.s. should adopt these tiny tractors for snow. they`re just so darn cute.


    huge trucks are fun to get stuck behind on a highway though too...

    You should see the hinging semi plow trucks they`re using in BC now. The front of the truck has a plow and another runs sideways down the length of what is basically a ballasted flat bed trailer. On command, the rear wheels turn and the whole thing swings out to clear and additional two lanes! For major highways only, of course.

    I hope OldOllie is right, and they`re just checking for defects in the pavement before it`s hidden by snow, otherwise that`s pretty messed up.

    Yeah, they`re just learning their route. Finding imperfections and risen segments so they don`t tear the hell out of those areas when they`re covered in a foot of snow.

    either that or they are unionised workers , in which case it doesn`t really matter if work is efficient or not.

    It`s scraping the ice / freezing rain off the sidewalk. I wish MY city would do that.

    Wow this is disgusting, clearly they are getting paid to work whether there is snow or not, by some random contract loophole. Nice pollution for nothing and leeching off the government teet there, Montreal.

    Income taxes there are higher than anywhere in canada, btw.

    The title/caption of this video are equivalent to claiming a video of a bombing range is just an operator with terrible aim.

    Looks more like they`re putting a sidewalk snow removal machine through it`s paces to make sure it works properly BEFORE it`s actually needed.

    Whoever submitted this, way to immediately jump to the wrong conclusion... and post video out of context... I suspect you know your description was B.S. Ontario & Quebec both pretty much have their sh*t together when it comes to urban snow removal.
