Fifty-seven per cent of Canadians said slow security was what made Pearson worst in their eyes. The airport also received poor marks from Canadian travellers for bad service and a lack of good dining options.

Internationally, London Heathrow was named worst in the world with 26% of travellers' votes. Toronto Pearson ranked third in the international rankings with 13% of global votes, while Paris' Charles de Gaulle was second.
