Writer says Alberta highway system falling apart

Highways in ‘deplorable’ condition: writer

Dear editor,

Premier Jason Kenney, Transportation Minister Ric McIvor, Honourable Rick Wilson:

Would you kindly fix the roads I was already taxed to fix, so I’m not causing damage to the car I am taxed annually to drive, which I purchased with income you already taxed, which is in the driveway of my home that is highly taxed?

The lack of good highway maintenance has caused highway surfaces to be in deplorable condition, and possibly the infrastructure could also be weakening.

Please fix the highways.

Wayne Maygard, County of Wetaskiwin
