Scotland has names on all of their plows / gritters. Some pretty ingenious ones in their fleet.

I believe this is what the city is going to do as well.

This is a fun idea.

I don't think they change yearly. I have a friend who is a driver.

If I were to submit a name, I'd probably go with "snow drifter" or something like that.

Or maybe, "the banker".

Remember the whole British warship thing and ‘boaty mcboatface’ won? I’d have hoped Calgarians were not so basic.

I think it was an arctic research vessel or some other type of scientific vessel.

Also it is awesome

Boaty McBoatface was humourous the first time. Every time after that, not so much.

In fairness here though, it's Grade 9s and under submitting the names.
