Now That’s Citizen Engagement! Max Kermanator wins name-the snow plow contest

Normally when a municipality asks citizens to weigh in on a subject they are lucky to get a couple of hundred responses, and then they typically come from the “ususal suspects” – insiders who inordinately dominate public debates.

But ask folks to name a snowplow…the numbers speak for themselves with tens of thousands of responses. Topping the list was Max Kermanator—in  honour of the Arkell’s lead singer Max Kerman with the runners-up as follows:

Max Kermanator – 18723

Plowy McPlowface – 2167


Clearopathra – 868

Icekee Wee Wee – 845

The Big Leplowski – 664


Betty Whiteout – 496

Mr. Plow – 403

Plowasaurus – 340

Here are the names that didn’t make the top 10:

Darth Blader – 336

Blizzard Wizard – 317

Austin Plowers – 285

Eugene Sleddy – 263

Melton John – 221

The Hamilsnownian – 181

Spready Mercury – 149

Spongebob Snowpants – 135

Sprinkles – 94

Olaf – 83

With each winter weather event, City road crews clear approx. 6,518 lane kms of roadway, 866 kms of sidewalks, 244 kms of bike lanes and 2,365 bus stops across Hamilton.
