Alward Government Being Assailed Over Roads

The Alward Government coming under fire again for its winter road maintenance. Provincial Transportation Minister Claude Williams says this winter has been the worst in the last twenty years and you have to deal with the realities associated with that.

Bay du Vin Liberal M-L-A Bill Fraser says he will pass along to Williams the hundreds of reports he has received about the condition of the roads. He argues they have never been in worse shape.

Williams, who says the budget to maintain roads has not been reduced, claims the plows have been out when required and if extra supplies of salt and sand were needed, they were bought. 

He also points out when it's stormy, you can plow a road and an hour later with the drifting, it will be snow covered again.
