A wall of ice might work

Finally, some practical advice on how to spruce up Route 90, thanks to Gail Asper (Sprucing up the city, Letters, Nov. 30). Why not plant some small trees on this route? If there's enough room for a fence, surely there would be enough room for some plants.

There's nothing prettier than greenery in the summertime and even snow-covered branches in the winter. Problem solved.

I also agree with letter writer Connie Leblanc (Manufactured frenzy, Nov. 30) who complains about Black Friday's "vortex of revolting greed." But why copy the Americans even by using the name Black Friday? How about White Friday, which at least matches the scenery outside.

With all due respect to Gail Asper, I would suggest that making a wall on Route 90 is not a priority for our city. She equates building a $7-million wall with maintenance of foundations and roofs of houses.

I might politely suggest that Winnipeg's foundation is being eroded by sprawling suburbs and poor planning. Winnipeg's crumbling infrastructure is at risk due to short-sighted development decisions, as opposed to planning sustainable communities. If we are to do the latter, then issues like Route 90's appearance become irrelevant.
