Victory

"Amazing news! We won the victory with the support of thousands of supporters worldwide. The government informed the community 2 months after the petition has been started the advanced timing of twinning the highway. It's a victory we are all proud of!"

On April 27 there was yet another deadly car accident on Highway 63, this time killing seven more people who did not need to die.

34-year-old Pastor, Shannon Wheaton, his partner Trena, their child Benjamin and four others were sadly lost in this avoidable incident.

For years everyone, including all of Alberta's political leaders, have agreed that we need to twin Highway 63. But agreement and minor progress are not enough. Perhaps if our government had acted sooner Shannon and his family would be alive today.

The current plan, if they even manage to meet this commitment, is to twin 50 percent of the road over the next three years. This is not good enough. We cannot let more people die while we wait for the Government to complete this project. Our Premier, Alison Redford, must take immediate action to see 100 percent of this highway twinned in the next three years.  

Sign this petition and share it with all of your friends so that we can ensure that the highway is improved and this awful tragedy never happens again.

      While I have only driven on this road once. then number of deaths is way too great. This is a public safety issue and needs to be twinned.

      People are dying on this highway and should be twinned while I live on a very quiet road and money was spent to make it a highway. Our tax dollars are NOT being used efficiently or effectively. Make changes that make the most impact and save the most lives!
