Re: Increased highway patrol by RCMP
A big thank you to the RCMP and Mayor Nancy Cooper who are doing everything they can to help make the downtown stretch of highway safer. The RCMP reported that they have increased patrols resulting in more tickets and hopefully more attentive drivers.
As the NDP candidate in the upcoming provincial election, I have been talking to the residents here and many have concerns about this issue.
A long-term solution is needed to improve safety and hopefully city council and the provincial government will be working on an action plan.
I appreciate the efforts made by my neighbour, Allison Morris, who felt compelled to start the rallies that have increased awareness and put this issue back on the front burner.
I appreciate her invitation to work with her on the rallies and we hope that a long-term solution will be found soon.
