Military choppers airlift motorists off Ontario highway

300 vehicles trapped by Monday morning snowstorm


A snowstorm in southern Ontario near the City of Sarnia was so bad Monday that military helicopters began airlifting stranded motorists from the roadside on Tuesday around 10:40 a.m. The stretch of Highway 402 between Sarnia and Strathroy was hit by a blizzard Monday that left more than 300 vehicles trapped. One of the men rescued told the Toronto Star that his gas tank was “down to fumes” by the time he was picked up Tuesday morning. The man had left for work in Sarnia around 6:15 a.m. Monday and had been stuck in the same spot on the road since 8:30 Monday morning.

    • With that type of attitude B.C. is really, really, glad your gone…Geeez !!!

      • wow we are all Canadian and fighting, what is this world coming to….. haha BC is glad you are gone, hahah are you but one person speaking for a province, stop acting like Americans and live up to our nice and caring name….

    • BC is more than happy to rid itself of lazy easterners.

  3. Dear Canadians – Instead of being cold, why not buy Arizona and make us a colony? With the strong Loonie and semi-non-insane fiscal policy, it is well within your budget. And the Washington DC government is a financially distressed and motivated seller. Besides, they hate us and sue us all the time.

    Imagine relaxing poolside while a former federal employee, that you select, is assigned to rub sun tan lotion on you to assure an even tan. Or, picture yourself hitting a perfect nine iron to the green while warmed by the Sonoran Desert sun. And in the evening, you may or may not wear a coat to go to a hockey game featuring an above average team that used to be called the Jets.
