The horrific car crash on Highway 11, north of Saskatoon on the weekend, which resulted in the loss of an entire family of four, points a finger directly at the Wall Government’s misplaced priorities.
The Highway 11 and Wanuskewin Road intersection has been a scene of repeated tragedy for years and yet the Wall Government has built a 100 million dollar Highway to Nowhere on the west side of Regina, which won’t be driven on until 2019. This road to nowhere is part of the 2 billion dollar South Regina Bypass boondoggle provincial taxpayers are funding over the next 30 years.
“The daily users of Highway 11 and Wanuskewin Road should be outraged at this misspent money around Regina instead of the government rectifying this well known traffic hazard and saving lives.” said P.C. Leader, Rick Swenson.
“The P.C. Party has been fighting for months to bring public awareness to this waste of taxpayers’ dollars and has proposed an alternative which is a billion dollars cheaper and which would save lives by putting the savings to work fixing high risk areas in other parts of the province. There should be the immediate installation of traffic lights at this location until a permanent solution is arrived at.” added Swenson.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the bereaved families.
