A Better Plan B
If the PEI government wants to make Islanders traveling in cars and trucks safer, how about telling the Federal Government to give Alberta that $8 Million to improve that highway that brings so many Maritimers to jobs in the oil sands. It doesn't quite fit the "Atlantic Gateway" criteria, but if keeping people safe is the issue, lower the speed limit here, get a four lane highway built there. And there's more, it can be a thanks to Albertans for not electing a Wildrose government with its deep suspicion about the role of equalization, and lastly it can remind the rest of Canada of the generosity of Maritimers. How to compensate Island roadbuilders? Not sure.
