It doesn’t get much more Canada than this.
According to Yahoo Canada, and video from the CBC and Radio Canada, traffic was stuck on a highway about 20 miles outside of Montreal following a collision which involved between 40 and 50 vehicles.
So, as the stranded motorists waited on the icy highway for emergency crews to clear a path, what did they do? Only the most Canadian thing possible.
They played hockey.
Yes, four travelers spent their delay knocking the puck around, passing the time. After all, it’s Canada. You don’t leave home without your stick and a puck, eh?
