Needs a title
As a Canadian I must say that I am disappointed in my fellow members of the Commonwealth. It takes a good half meter of snow before we even THINK of shutting down the buses here, and even then the subways would keep running (because they're, you know, underground). Even after all those are shut down we keep driving our cars, the vast majority of which are just front wheel drive sedans, none of this AWD or 4WD crap.
We don't turn a couple inches into international news.
