PARKS CANADA IGNORES SAFETY CONCERNS!!
Parks Canada is about to build a single lane bridge with traffic lights on a busy, designated ‘major collector roadway’ across the Brighton end of the Murray Canal. As far as we know, this is a first of its kind anywhere in the Province of Ontario, where a permanent and potentially dangerous pinch-point, new single lane bridge would be inserted onto a busy highway. We need your help to stop this plan. Otherwise, we’ll be stuck with this bridge for the next 50+ years.
· We need to get our elected representatives at all levels of government to the table to fix this! Only the Minister of the Environment can compel PARKS CANADA to respond to requests our Municipalities have already made to delay start of procurement of this totally unacceptable single lane bridge!
Please support our efforts to STOP PARKS CANADA!
If a single lane bridge were to be constructed, this would create serious safety issues. Traffic delays will have severe economic impacts to tourism and other industries throughout the Bay of Quinte region. Therefore, we the undersigned, demand a two lane bridge be constructed, to current standards, over the Murray Canal at County Road 64 in Quinte West, Ontario.
