Marcel Landry, P.E.I.'s snow-tunnel man, now faces big dig to shed
Marcel Landry's shovels are buried deep in garden outbuilding
P.E.I.'s snow-tunnel man — who received worldwide attention last week for digging through snow to get to his cars — now faces a new challenge: Digging to a shed where his shovels are buried.
Millions of people watched online as Marcel Landry from Summerside dug out after a major storm hit P.E.I. last Monday, and news agencies from around the world contacted him after his story aired on CBC News.

"I laughed all week. I didn't think I'd ever get this much attention from shovelling my driveway," he said Wednesday.
It took five people an entire afternoon of shovelling with help from a blower to clear snow from around Landry's cars, which had to be towed out.
That day, Landry used a hockey stick as a snow-digging tool.
"My steel shovels, my garden shovels are in the shed," said Landry. "I wasn't going to dig a hole to get to my shovels. It's kind of counterproductive."
But it might be back to the hockey stick soon: Landry said he's now considering boring a tunnel to the shed.
