Here is an e-mail we received from a resident. It speaks for itself.
The potholes in front of my house are so big and bad and my calls to have them filled have been falling, not on deaf ears, but on people who feel that it is not possible to look after the roads and pay salaries at the same time.One gets jackrabbited from one phone number to another until somebody comes back from lunch or a break to tell you there are no resources. I see resources piled higher and deeper between here and Canning where they store the chip seal material.It is just that there are no specialists in throwing that stuff into the holes and tamping it down. Are they in a union or something?I considered getting the gigantic raccoon (roadkill) on the highway and having it peaking over the edge of the pothole that wants to tear my tires to pieces. I have to detour to get out of here.The man who delivers the newspaper in the wee hours has to have the patience of Job. The ambulance drivers and paramedics will drive over hot coals and potholes to get to this neck of the woods, not to mention the once a year visit of the RCMP. Perhaps they come around more often, but have disappeared inadvertently in one of the potholes. I should check.Betty Morgan
NO RESOURCES? Huh
