The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) is excited by the momentum behind the campaign to twin Highways 39 and 6 from North Portal to Regina.
Souris-Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki has come out strongly in favour of having the highways twinned. Komarnicki should be thanked for throwing his support behind the idea. This is a major safety issue in southeast Saskatchewan, and for the many people who are on those highways every day.
Therefore, we thank Mr. Komarnicki for lending his influence and support to this effort.
Komarnicki’s move comes after Premier Brad Wall made comments recently that suggest he is having second thoughts about having the highways twinned. Ideally, money will soon be forthcoming for this worthwhile project.
Hopefully work on the twinning will have begun by the time Mr. Komarnicki retires, so that this project will be a legacy to his career as an MP.
