Police and paramedics rely on them.

So do truck drivers and hockey moms.

We ALL rely on well maintained highways.

Properly maintained highways, roads and bridges keep the travelling public safe. They are also a key part of our provincial economic infrastructure.

We need well-trained, experienced workers who are familiar with their region to keep our highways safe.

In the next few years our experienced highways workers could lose their jobs. That’s because highways maintenance contracts could change hands.

There’s no guarantee the experienced crews will keep their jobs..or be there to keep our roads safe.
