LETTER: Very little hope

The current backslapping by politicians regarding the widening of Fraser Highway and much-needed expansion of Highway 13 is, for the most part, greeted by Valley taxpayers as long overdue.

Pushing aside the smoke and mirrors regarding current and anticipated future cost to complete the projects, if the province waits another 10 to 20 years to complete the projects, just imagine – based on current tax burdens – how much Valley inhabitants will be forced to pay for something that is urgently needed in this decade.

It appears to me that councillors Les Barkman and Moe Gill are the only voices of common sense in the Valley.

Due to my cynicism, I have very little hope that there will be forward thinking regarding the urgency of the traffic situation.
