You would think Montrealers would be used to snow by now, given that it has fallen upon the city ever since it was founded in 1642.

But they’re not, apparently. At least, not some in the city’s road maintenance department who didn’t get the salt trucks out early enough on Monday, Dec. 5.

Witness this somewhat shameful video of various vehicles — including two city buses, a police car and a salt truck — slide down a hill on a street in the heart of downtown Montreal on Monday morning after a light dusting of snow that made some streets slick, as as happened so many times before (re: see aforementioned history lesson in the lede of this post).

Watch it — and laugh at the city slickers in Montreal.
