The new standards are absolutely ridiculous. The government doesn't care... they are spending tax payer's money.

What standards would those be . Have ice free roads or snow plowed roads properly sanded. Have those standards changed.

You really need to use google. This is a company that makes Argo look like a lawn mowing contractor. Will they do a better job than Argo? Don't know. But just because head office is in Spain does not mean they don't already do it all over the planet.

Hope your right. For what its worth. I love Spain. However snow is not their business. Hopefully Acciona has a lot of LOCAL people

Spain gets Snow in Northern areas and in their mountains. It would really *bleep* off their skiers if they didn't.
I could wake up early tomorrow and go running, or I could win the lottery...the odds are about the same.

I would be interested in hearing how the folks out in Ok Falls, Keremeos, Oliver, Summerland and Naramata view this announcement. Have friends in Naramata who simply could not believe that lack of service from Argo in the winter. Time will tell.
