Long live the historic Ross River bridge

Calgary – I was thrilled to hear that the bridge in Ross River has been spared demolition [T.W. Paterson’s Chronicles, Cowichan Valley Citizen, April 9].

I crossed it in 1983 with four similarly dusty friends on ATVs having travelled what was left of the CANOL road all the way from Norman Wells, NWT. It is an important piece of Yukon and Canadian history. Who knows, perhaps the CANOL and the bridge can be part of the everexpanding Trans Canada Trail!
