Mother Nature hasn’t closed the book on winter in Montreal just yet as a hefty, sticky, downfall of powder has triggered an early-March snow-clearing operation on the island.
The City of Montreal announced this morning that blue-collar workers will begin another massive operation throughout Montreal tonight, starting at 7 pm.
“Make sure to respect the signage [on roads] to help speed up operations,” stated the city on its Facebook page on Sunday.
