I just watched a girl walking along the sidewalk in her city fall into a sink hole and drop 19 feet.

The camera taking the picture was a local security camera.

That is scary.

Pot holes were not bad this year.

Unfortunately the roads are still dismal.

"Winnipeg sinkhole resembles crater"

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/story/2012/04/27/mb-sinkholes-winnipeg-120427.html

A damaged road, on Ingersol Street near Ellice Avenue, is one of many that drivers have encountered — sometimes without warning — in recent days.

"It was a bit of a shocker," Barak Mymin, who rides a scooter, said of his encounter with hole in the pavement on Tuesday. "It was a bit of a wakeup call."

Mymin said the hole he hit was relatively small, but was jarring nevertheless.

"I didn't see it and went over top of it and it slammed hard," he said. Mymin said the hole has grown larger since he first noticed it. "If I'd driven over it at this point it would've done a lot of damage to my scooter."

Another sinkhole on Corydon Avenue has Brian Jones comparing Winnipeg roads, unfavourably, to other cities in Canada.

"I think they're probably the worst in the country," Jones said.

While true that all things in life are relative, lets compare our roads to something more comparable, instead of a country halfway around the world, for instance Calgary.

The roads in Calgary and Alberta compared to Winnipeg and Manitoba are a much better comparison...and we lose.
