C'mon Catherine, they use aggregate (asphault pavement > 80%)....straight from your engineering materials notes lolll

They just fill/patch it and once ppl drive on it, it comes back again. Definetly worst city for potholes

No no. I just moved to Regina, and its by far the worst roads I've yet to drive on in Canada! I've been in Montreal and lived in Calgary and Edmonton, Regina by far worse. I have yet to drive on a smooth road. They seriously just dont give a shit about their roads here. And everyone that lives in the city says that too. I challenge anyone of you to try find a street here that isn't an obstacle course of pot holes or speed bumps. Now in winter, is worse as they don't believe in snow removal it seems. Rut central.

Guess what every major city is bad. You know, when it feels like you took a detour into the Rockies. All your worried about is being able to get home, and how manny hundreds lighter you will be. This winter I feel like someone puts that same quarry in front of my right front wheel.

I can't say for other provinces, but between Montreal and Toronto, Montreal is definitely worse!

My vote goes to Montreal, you could lose a Fiat in some of the potholes there.

I've driven in almost every major city in the NE USA and most provinces in Canada and I have to say that Winnipeg has the worst roads of all! and the worst drivers too!

I've driven nearly all of Canada and I would have to say Winnipeg - not because I live there, just because it is simply the worst.
