Montreal closes schools 
because of snow-covered roofs


____________________________________

14 Mar 08 - The Commission scolaire de Montreal cancelled classes Friday afternoon and began calling parents to pick up their children at designated locations after a roof collapse at a specialty food store in Morin-Heights killed three women.

The deaths prompted volunteers at hundreds of businesses and schools to clamber up on roofs to shovel off snow in some cases more than two metres (almost seven feet) deep.

One family south of Quebec City was counting its blessings after the roof of their home caved in.

Stephane Paquet said he couldn't even see his fridge or any of his appliances because they were buried under about two metres of snow.

Paquet estimated the damages at about $160,000.
