Re: Douglas Trail Road
The Douglas Trail road connects Seton Portage with D’Arcy and the Pemberton Portage Road.
The Hon. Jackie Tegart, MLA for the Fraser-Nicola riding, deserves accolades from the travelling public for her efforts in resolving the contentious problems relating to that road’s maintenance issues. Within a few months’ time, she was able to resolve a problem that other politicians have avoided over the last 60 years.
In addition to the people who own property along that road, those people now living in the Bridge River area and Bralorne will now be able to save time and expense during the winter months when travelling to Pemberton or Vancouver.
The Aboriginal communities in Seton Portage and D’Arcy will also enjoy the benefits of a publicly maintained road.
It is refreshing to experience how an elected politician is actually performing her duties for the benefit of her constituents and also for other members of the public.
MLA Tegart’s assistance was a win-win solution for everyone
