just walked by this. Although this is not so uncommon in big cities, everything involving terrible infrastructure makes me chuckle. Defence mechanism?


This city is a real joke.

Pretty ****** for this to be happening in a dense area like this. Makes you wonder what other faults there are.

First person to start up the French/English political debate receives an infraction.

That hole is huge. Almost as huge as Price's five hole.

Touché. Anything political.

I realize that infrastructure problems will automatically lead to political talk but let's try to keep it to a minimum for as long as possible. Otherwise I will be forced to move it to the politics board.

No excuses!

But all kidding aside, it's scary to see that stuff like this can happen in a world class city (or so we say). Good thing the area was closed to the public... I can't imagine what would have happened if all the people that are supposed to be there usually were really there.

yeah exactly. Good thing school is out for most people, would have been a terrible beginning of semester happening. So if Guy and St Cath is like that, how's Mackay or Bishops? that's the real problem. I have no faith in our god damn streets.

Anyway, it would be stupid to blame infrastructures on language. It's a provincial matter and in a province where French is the most spoken language, it's normal that most of the people in charge were francophones. But it has nothing to do with what they speak, it's about how they lead this province. In that aspect, despite some investments at the end of the last decade, infrastructures were severely neglected by both Liberal and Pequists governments.

And I hear the results every damn time I accidently drive into a ****ing pothole.

And I wont even go into the whole Commission Charbonneau thing. That didn't help either.

All I have to say is "LOL!!!".

Montreal is a real joke. I live on the North Shore, and refuse to go to Montreal anymore unless I absolutely have to.

My job is right by Des Prairies River, I go there to work and then come right back on the good side of the bridges... I find all my entertainment and shopping needs in the suburbs. Just too much traffic, too many holes and constructions sites in the streets, and **** like this.

Large sinkhole on... the 417 in Ottawa this year. Montreal is old yes, but stuff happens everywhere.

Crimson Skorpion 08-05-2013 11:08 AM

If I'm not mistaken, Ottawa had a few this year. One killed a couple. (not sure if that's the one in the picture provided by Hullois)

Sandvich 08-05-2013 11:16 AM

If we didn't signed Briere we could have taken that money and filled up the hole already.

DekeLikeYouMeanIt 08-05-2013 11:20 AM

This has been happening all over Canada recently. I think Godzilla is hiding in one of the lakes.

roy munson 08-05-2013 11:36 AM

This alone isn't the biggest scandal ever, but it's all the "little" things added here and there that makes me happy I fled to the north shore. Born and raised in MTL, I used to be in love with my city, but nowadays, not so sure.

I like to see the glass half-full, so at least they have some of the equipment already on site for repairs...

I don't remember anyone dying in Ottawa due to a sink hole.

That one in the picture (was in Orléans) didn't kill the driver.

Saint-Jude had a pretty nasty one a couple years agp

I was in Cuba last month and was noticing how much better the roads are there (fewer potholes) compared to Montreal. Actually, just about anywhere is better.
