    Background: Montreal, Canada, was unable to dig itself out of last weekend's blizzard because the city's 1,500 snow removal workers were out on strike.

    The combined efforts of the storm....one of the worst on record... and the strike crippled the city-centra.

    Montrealers resorted to "snowmobiles" and skis to get around city streets littered with snow-bound cars abandoned during the storm.
