I guess that it can be substituted for an sidewalk in Nanaimo's case since there are very few sidewalks in this city.
How it's done in civilized Canadian Cities. They don't plow the damned snow on the sidewalks and wait for it to melt.
Many other vids.

Out shoveling today and just in time along comes the city truck. He made 3 passes while I was out there. The last one he managed to get right up on the curb and plow the snow back onto the sidewalk.I didn't think that It would have p----d him off by waving at him on his first pass. No, I didn't give him the single digit salute. LOL
All they need is 2 small machines to plow the sidewalks on all major types of roads. You say they have more snow and a bigger budget. Naturally, and the City of Montreal must be 100+ times the size of Nanaimo. Therefore, with our size, amount of snow, and for the safety and security of its residents, there is no comparison with Montreal. Just a minor investment, a policy change re removal and sidewalks for the safety and security of its taxpaying residents.

Not that I disagree with you but, Montreal's snow budget is more than Nanaimo's total budget for the whole year!! So, we plow the roads normally, then our 2 machines come in and do the sidewalks. Which roads should we start with?. By the time they got the sidewalks cleared, the snow would be gone!!! See my point? We don't get enough predictable snow around here to justify the cause. Just my thought on the subject
..... to where????
