Another day on the bridge – hours of waiting to cross – no way to turn around – no way to use the washroom if you have a need, the utter feeling of being trapped if you have to cross because of school or business.
These pictures say it all. They were taken from 2nd Street in Cornwall and show that nearly the entire northern bridge was backed up with vehicles. Imagine the weight on the bridge not to mention the wear and tear on motorists and their vehicles.
All the while our MP has nothing to say about the crisis or calls for mediation. How many cars sit on that bridge each and every day, and how many lives and area businesses are being impacted? Maybe Mr. Russell was right and Mr. Harper would be better off with a Pigeon?
Maybe it is time for Mr. Lauzon to speak? Maybe it is time for Minister Van Loan to come to Cornwall and get involved? And maybe, just maybe, it’s time for the government to step up to the plate and get this resolved. If they don’t like the suggestions made to them perhaps they can come up with some alternatives because the status quo is not satisfactory, safe, or helping the citizens of this riding and the area.
