Replay live chat: Will the city's new snow clearing plan work?

Replay the Saskatoon Morning live chat about snow clearing.

The Saskatoon city council has passed a new snow clearing plan that includes new clearing routes, increase in fines and how long vehicles won't be allowed to be parked on snow routes. 

The city will be divided into two major snow routes. The Green Circle snow route will be the priority, which includes Circle Drive and 62 other primary roadways. The Blue Square route includes Broadway Avenue and 141 other streets. 

Once a snow route declaration is made, vehicles must not be parked on those streets for 24 hours. It used to be 72 hours. 

If you do park along a snow route during that 24-hour period, the fine is going up from $65 to $100. 

The city says these changes will help it do a better job to get the snow cleared off streets. So Saskatoon Morning asked its audience the following questions: What do you think about these changes? Are they a step in the right direction? Also, what letter grade would you give the city so far for its snow-clearing efforts so far this season?
