Lately there is talk of wanting to extend the divided highway further north on Highway 2. What is the point of spending large amounts of money on this when traffic is bound to be light due to having only half a bridge (if we are lucky) to get there in the first place?
It is obvious that the bridge situation works in favour of the taxpayer, mainly due to cutting down on nuisance traffic from thousands of tourists. Once they find out about our one half bridge situation, they tend to avoid this route as much as possible.
It is obvious in the coming elections, municipal, provincial and federal, that we must vote to keep our present representatives. By their tactics, they are saving taxpayers large amounts of money. Let’s keep it that way.
Saskatoon is known as “the city of bridges.” Prince Albert can be referred to as “the city of half a bridge.” We could be famous.
