Putting the high in highways

  • Print

The Tories asked FIVE questions about FIVE different highways in Question Period Wednesday. Plus one about a traffic light in the RM of Rosser.

We heard a question about Highway 2 near Wawanesa. We got one on the TransCanada near Headingley. Why hasn’t Highway 59 near St. Malo been upgraded? Same with PTH 304 near Powerview! And don’t forget the bridge over the floodway on PTH 15. And what about the lights in Rosser?

Oh, the humanity! To be fair, Leader Hugh McFadyen was away at the Association of Manitoba Municipalities meeting in Brandon, and since leaders have latitude to talk longer (and they do, especially Hugh), there was way more time left for questions on Wednesday than there normally is. The Tories had to scrape the bottom of the barrel to fill their 40 minutes in QP. 

Still, five questions? If this is how it's going to be, there's a pothole on Newman Street that needs a little Tory TLC.
