I know it's still summer, but I had to detour around construction in Rivière-du-Loup yesterday, and stumbled upon this.
I was frankly not aware of the J.A.Larue company in Quebec City, makers of this impressive snow blower. They seem to be a major outfit, with a lot of products, including several units larger than this one, which is run by the City of Rivière-du-Loup. You'll note it has a right hand drive half cab, presumably to give the operator a better chance of picking off fire hydrants!
See www.jalarue.com for a nifty web site and some more pics.
