Tear down the wall

Dear Editor,

After following Sylvan Lake’s elected legislatures now for several years deal with the main streets, major intersection and finally the total blockage to through traffic. And see this done against the continuous protests of Sylvan Lake residents.

This all leading many otherwise law abiding people into illegal U turns. Can you imagine the B train driver for whatever reason is driving south faces the blockade at Highway 11. Turning west he faces the choice of going back through Sylvan traffic or going many miles out of his way on secondary roads. The illegal U turn appears to be his best option if he thinks he can do it.

I will not go into the devastation here of down town this intersection may be causing.

The Sylvan Lake elected officials may have the legacy of making some good changes to Sylvan Lake but the facts are their “totally stupid intersection” decision on their watch will be their final legacy. Absolutely nothing else will be remembered. But there is time yet to change.

In the words of Ronald Regan to Mikhail Gorbachev “tear down this wall”.

Walter Sandusky,

Sylvan Lake
