A report drafted by Wildrose MLAs Shayne Saskiw and Drew Barnes and sent today to Transportation Minister Ric McIver calls on the Redford government to commit to a hard timeline for the twinning of Highway 63 and the immediate disclosure of an infrastructure priority list.
Saskiw and Barnes compiled the report after touring Highways 63 and 881 and meeting with community stakeholders in August. Its recommendations reflect feedback Saskiw and Barnes heard during their two-day tour.
The attached letter from the entire Wildrose Official Opposition was signed by all members of the Caucus supporting the key recommendations of the report to twin Highway 63.
Wildrose Infrastructure and Transportation Critic Drew Barnes said that Albertans are tired of the same old government micro-announcements and photo ops – like the one planned for tomorrow – and that it’s time to take action to put the safety of Albertans first on Highway 63.
