Man up, clean up, set up

When oh when is the mess at the corner of highways 781 and 11 going to be cleaned up

Dear Editor,

When oh when is the mess at the corner of highways 781 and 11 going to be cleaned up and a set of lights set up? Now STOP “PASSING THE BUCK.”

As that corner is now, all emergency vehicles are impeded from all directions — yes think about it — you can do it. RCMP, ambulance, fire department work with lives in their hands at all times — lives are counted in seconds. You do not have the right or power to decide who will live or die.

So clean up that grave error at the corner of highways 781 and 11 then put in a set of lights.

Yes — traffic will have to slow down — go a little further east and there is another set of lights, a little further west there is another important intersection from Sylvan Lake. Sylvan Lake is growing you know.

So please man up, clean up, and set up! Why? BECAUSE IT IS YOUR JOB. YES REALLY.

Nancy A. Hayes,

Sylvan Lake
