By now, most Canadians refer to Montreal as the city with a crumbling infrastructure. Over the years, there has been several reports of concrete literally from the sky, yet politicians have been slow to react. That is until now. Earlier this week, city councillor Patrice Rousillion spoke to This is That to share his thoughts on how Montrealers should best deal with their crumbling city.

"Lets face it," said Rousillion, "We're never going to fix the city's infrastructure, so now we must focus on how we can defend ourselves against it."
