Toronto's disgrace at 10 years

Ten years ago today, a snowstorm socked large parts of Canada. Most municipalities large and small managed to handle it, being that snow is part of Canadian life, with one notable exception: Toronto, Ontario crapped its collective pants and ground to a halt. Mel Lastman, maniac furniture salesman turned mayor, gave up and called in the military to help them dig out. So wherever else you might live, just remember: your city may have its ups and downs... but at least you don't need the Canadian Army to plow your driveway for you.
