Freeway never improves a neighbourhood

Duncan – John Robertson would have us believe that a bypass is too big a sacrifice to make but destroying Duncan with a cloverleaf is not.

I can’t think of one instance where a neighbourhood has been improved with the addition of a freeway, for that, in reality, is what Mr. Robertson is proposing.

If it were built, the demands of the growing population of Vancouver Island would make the “improvements” obsolete and a bypass would have to be built anyway, leaving behind an even more divided town than it is and that is a sacrifice the citizens of Duncan shouldn’t have to make.
