Tried to find an online news source that had the full list but the best I got was a a Winkler focused article on CTV which listed the non-perimeter hotspots.

Looking through this there arent too many surprises
I don't know why provinces and cities keep releasing these stats based on raw figures other than to get people all worked up.

On a related topic I noticed a link on that page to a story about how the City of Winnipeg is going to be slashing it's roads budget by nearly 1/3. Ouch! It's also scaling back its six-year road renewal program from $976 million to $801 million. What is "road renewal"? I've never heard that term used in Alberta. That figure wouldn't include capital projects would it? If so, that's an extremely small budget for six years.
