Not happy with how Hwy. #13 and Sec. Hwy. #814 being handled

Dear editor,

Earlier in July 100 people gathered at city hall in Wetaskiwin. We were there to say “Come on, do something about the all too dangerous intersection at Hwy. #13 and Sec. Hwy. 814.”

Man, this is one bad crossing and I cringe every time I cross it.

One hundred people gathered at this rally, not all that bad for a weekday afternoon. I even saw a few kids there as well.

Mayor Gandam was at this protest as well and when asked for a comment, he borrowed a quote from Canada’s great scholar Justin Trudeau: “I believe this problem will fix itself if we wait long enough.”

Editor’s note: Since the intersection in question involves a provincial highway within city limits, both the city and provincial government are involved in this situation. Readers should note that the City of Wetaskiwin is going to look at options for the intersection at their regular council meeting Aug. 19, starting at 4 p.m., which is open to the public.
