Letter: Recent Highway 101 closures prove need for a new highway


Yet again, over the course of the last two weeks, our Goat Trail was blocked by the forces of nature and a fatal accident. These are no longer unique or “one time” events but are becoming the new norm.

The response to them can only be the construction of a new, state-of-the-art environmentally responsible real highway.

We call on our provincial leaders and senior staff to finally engage in a meaningful way to make this happen before more blockages and fatalities occur.
