Hey there, time traveller!

Everyone was abuzz yesterday about the province's move to boost the speed limit to 110 km/h on parts of the Trans-Can and Highway 75 to Emerson. I'm new here, so I checked our archives to read a little background. Turns out, the province has been mulling the speed change since at least May, 2006. That's a whole lotta mulling, nearly two years worth, all to change a couple of signs on two highways.I'm glad engineers spent time making sure Manitoba's roads are safe, and I respect the fact that the government has to consult with truckers and environmental groups and the like. But two years?
