I am in edmonton as well and this year has been ridiculous! Much can be attributed to the vast range of temperature we have been seeing.

I'd say Montreal, although Boston in the US is terrible. Texas has great roads, probably the best ones I've driven on.

I lived in Edmonton too and potholes ARE pretty bad...but to be honest, Winnipeg has the worst. The first thing I noticed when visiting Winnipeg is how bad the roads are. The curbs are crumbling so badly I know several people who have lost tires because they hit a pothole and it slashed the sidewall open.

Montreal is probably #2 followed by Edmonton at #3.

Agreed actually, that was the first thing I noticed too. Winnipeg has HORRIBLE roads.

I thought new York, but looks like Canada is a winner. I didn't drive mine this winter, but the spring looks ominouse. Sometimes the joy isn't there without the right roads.

Another vote for Montreal! It can take them months to repair.....and when they do, it's crappy work.
