A provincial road crew clears a path along Eighteenth Street on the Thompson Bridge, last weekend.

Police say they've had to tow a few vehicles that were in the way of snowplows recently, and they're issuing a public plea for people to try to avoid getting towed.

The city regularly posts dates and times for snow removal in various areas, and they are signed on the streets as well.

Still, police say that in recent days they've had to tow vehicles away from designated snow removal areas to make way for snowplows. The towing, they note, is at the expense and inconvenience of the registered owner.

Canadian spelling is indeed "plow" according to the Canadian Press, which publishes the Style Guide that the Brandon Sun (and most Canadian media) follow. Despite British roots in some things (colour) and French roots in others (centre) we do actually have American-style spellings for some of our words. We drop the æ in words like 'enclyclopædia' or 'pædiatrician' for example. And my car has four tires, not tyres. Cheers.

Why is the Brandon Sun using American spelling? The Canadian media, I believed, upheld traditional Canadian spelling. Please, help keep our identity in every way we can. The word is plough, not plow. Thank you.
