Yes I do for many reasons.

The waterfront is one of the biggest natural assets in Salmon Arm. We need a safe and efficient way to direct our traffic out of the downtown core over to the waterfront. Even with the double tracks in place, the wait time is still too long. Any kind of construction work for trucks and materials puts projects that much further behind.

Furthermore, we should take into consideration the environmental pollution impact caused from the vehicles idling while they wait. Through the construction of this project, I believe the city will benefit for years beyond the completion.
