No plow? Try a Zam­boni

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

VAN­COU­VER — One man has found a uniquely Cana­dian way to re­spond to the un­usu­ally large amounts of snow that have fallen on parts of Bri­tish Columbia by tak­ing his Zam­boni out to clear roads in one Van­cou­ver Is­land com­mu­nity.

Cpl. Dan Cot­ting­ham of the Cen­tral Saanich po­lice says of­fi­cers were called at about 7:30 p.m. Mon­day af­ter a lo­cal farmer took his Zam­boni out on the streets of the dis­trict, just out­side Vic­to­ria.

“I’m not sure ex­actly what he was do­ing in re­la­tion to clear­ing snow, but he might have just been plow­ing it out of the way,” said Cot­ting­ham.

The man had pur­chased the se­cond-hand Zam­boni to spread ma­nure on his field, Cot­ting­ham said.

But with­out in­sur­ance, the ve­hi­cle can’t be op­er­ated on public roads.

“He was thanked, but asked to go back to his prop­erty,” Cot­ting­ham said.
