CBC's Doug Greer at The Wreckhouse.
Had an interview today at The Wreckhouse with Doug Greer from CBC. I had a chance to express my concerns about the signs that warn motorists of winds in that area. With todays technology and a weather station already in The Wreckhouse our Government should be able to do much better warning the motoring public of the dangers in that area when the Southeast winds blow across the mountains. Even in the days of the late Lauchie McDougall the system seemed superior to the few wooden signs that dot the roadside today. Somehow i have a feeling that the consumers of this province are paying higher costs for goods with all those accidents on that stretch of highway. A Digital sign on each end of this section of highway with wind speeds flashing in real time will alert motorists to the dangers rather then a wooden sign that's mostly ignored.
