An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE RECENT DISCUSSION here on the Armchair Mayor about scrapping plans for the Singh Street Bridge raised questions about the need for a new crossing on the North Thompson River.
Why not a crossing between Westsyde and Rayleigh or Heffley, some asked?
This is a good point. The lack of a bridge anywhere north of the Halston adds a tremendous amount of time, and greenhouse gases, for anyone having to travel from one side of the river to the other.
