I totally agree with concerns about unsightly green spaces in and around the McTavish-Lochside interchange. I believe they fall under the provincial highways department jurisdiction. However, someone dropped the ball big time when it came to installing an appealing landscape design.
With all the planning and taxpayer money put into that mega project, someone in charge didn’t have that foresight.
It’s a round about time our local municipal, provincial and federal governments pick up the ball where it was dropped, cut the red tape and just get it done. This is their opportunity for playing their part in leaving a positive first and lasting impression on the visitors to our Island and its people.
