"We have never seen it like this before," Ball said on Power and Politics Monday night, describing the volume of snow the city has to remove or push aside in order to allow vehicles through the streets.

Ball also applauded the mass "humanitarian effort" by members of the military, who were sent in to help with post-storm recovery. Personnel and equipment landed on the island Sunday night and will likely remain until at least the end of the week, Ball said.

The Canadian Forces are expected to have 450 troops on the ground by the end of Tuesday.

Those already in the region spent much of Monday digging trenches from front doors to streets.

Some of the top priorities for the troops are to clear roads, attend to elderly and sick residents and ensure that people who need medical care get to hospitals and clinics.
