LETTER: My name on a bus shelter would be nice

The province is well underway with improvements to Highway 14, and it’s time to review my part in the process.

Readers will recall that I met Premier John Horgan last September in the airport coffee line, and we mulled over improvements to the area.

We discussed, among other things, Highway 14 and a possible medical unit.

Now, I don’t want to exaggerate anything that we talked about, but I recall quite vividly the gleam in Premier Horgan’s eye when Highway 14 came up.

The cynics and scoffers among you may discount my part, but I think it’s no coincidence. You may think that Premier Horgan already had it in mind prior to our brief interlude at the airport. Well, maybe not.

Am I looking for any recognition? No way! But maybe my name on a bus shelter might be appropriate – in gold leaf would be nice touch? Is that too much to ask for?

All I can say: one down, one to go.
