A little bit of white joy -- but be cautious on the roads

  • Print

Give yourself some extra driving time if you’re planning on heading outside the Perimeter today.

A light sprinkle of snow and freezing rain overnight has made some highways around Winnipeg a little slick this morning. Most of the concern is located on roads north and east of the city. The province says Highways 6, 7, 8 and 59 heading north are snow covered.

Many highways in the Westman region – including Hwy 10 and Hwy 16 north of Brandon – are also snow covered.

Meanwhile, the following highways are partly covered or have slush-covered sections:

- North, East and West Perimeter

- Trans-Canada Hwy east to Hwy 12

- Henderson Hwy to Hwy 44

- Hwy 15 east to Anola

- Hwy 9 north to Hwy 44

- Hwy 3 to Carman

- Hwy 75 south

Sanding trucks and snow plows are out in some of the problem areas. With Saturday’s forecast calling for a chance of more wet snow/rain, extra precaution is advised when travelling on all these routes.

Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
