There is an interesting article in this weeks Manitoulin Expositor concerning Cardwell Street running between Manitowaning and the edge of the Wikwemikong Reserve. I myself drive this stretch of road quite often and can attest to its poor condition. Nothing has fallen off my vehicle there (yet) but I know that it has contributed to a broken tail pipe, loose muffler and damaged wheel rims.
For sure someone is getting funding to maintain this road and perhaps it's time they do something before there is a serious accident resulting in a tragedy which a dollar value cannot be put on.
Read the article at www.manitoulin.ca and post your thoughts in this forum. If you haven't driven this road lately take a run over there soon and you'll see what all the talk is about. It’s a very scenic area of our island… to bad we can’t enjoy it.
Here's a little bit of information from this weeks Manitoulin Expositor. Check out the full article at www.manitoulin.ca ...
"The municipality cannot afford to spend the $2 million estimated needed to rebuild the road, while the province has no legislative route to 'upload' a road to its responsibility-even though in many other instances, such as the roadways into Gore Bay that seem to be identical in nature, yet are maintained by the province. The Wikwemikong band, in the meantime, is prevented by funding regulations from spending money on a roadway outside of its own boundaries and the federal government has no direct means of contributing to a project that lies within a provincial area of jurisdiction."
It looks like everything will be worked out but how come no comments to this message? Am I the only one who's lost a tail-pipe? Maybe I just drive too fast!
