Algoma-Manitoulin MPP Michael Mantha rose in the Ontario Legislature yesterday to highlight the poor quality of winter road maintenance in northern Ontario as he read a number of recent news headlines from the region, all of which were in relation to area fatal highway collisions.
"It just isn't working," he said of the winter road maintenance program."Highway 101, 144, 17, 129 are all under winter road maintenance concerns. And just this morning in McKerrow, another death. Enough is enough!"

See what Mantha said four years ago on the subject. "Reading a letter sent to me from a volunteer firefighter from Wawa in response to a tragedy he witnessed caused by poor winter road maintenance which could have been prevented."
