The 2016 budget adopted for the City of Ottawa allocates $102 million to "roads and traffic maintenance":

The 2016 City of Hamilton budget allocates $92 million to roads according to

This implies Hamilton is spending about 50% more per capita on roads than Ottawa (populations are 520,000 and 884,000 respectively), despite the weather-related high maintenance costs Ottawa has. And Ottawa is spending much more per capita on transit.

This does reveal the very different priorities in the two cities!
