According to residents of Donwoods Drive in Toronto, the roads that ply through their streets belong in Beirut rather than Canada:
Donwoods Drive is a doozy.
A gateway residential street to Hoggs Hollow, the steep swath of pavement can rattle teeth and bones. It practically crumbles beneath the weight of a bike or car.
“This is the worst road in the city,” says a cyclist struggling through the intricate maze of ruts and pockmarks on a sunny May afternoon.
Standing off to the side, councillor Jaye Robinson nods in agreement.
“The residents email me and say, ‘We feel like these are the streets of Beirut, not a Toronto neighbourhood’.
Councillor Jaye Robinson will be receiving her Looks Like Beirut certificate shortly.
