More snow in the forecast by week's end

The city has been working to remove the 30 centimetres of snow that fell last Sunday, but on some streets in Montreal they seem to be struggling.

It may get worse, since the forecast is calling for even more snow as the week goes on.

Some residents of NDG say driving and parking has been difficult for them since Sunday.

“Snow removal is a disaster in NDG,” one resident said.

Another parent who has a child at Greaves Adventist Academy on West Hill Avenue told CJAD that there are mountains of snow in front of the school.

“They cleaned the opposite side of the street, not the side of the school, and then they pushed all the snow in front of the school, they’ve totally ignored this school and it’s a real risk factor.  I’ve called the city to complain three times,” he said.

On Wednesday the city told CJAD 50 per cent of the snow removal had been completed across Montréal and that it always puts the priority on schools, hospitals and metros, but that if the school is on a side street it’s the responsibility of the borough.

It also said the snow should be completely clear by Friday, if we don't get a lot more snow.
