The MPP for Timmins-James Bay, Gilles Bisson, says people shouldn’t have to die when driving Northern Ontario highways. But the NDP member says that’s basically what Glen Murray, the transportation minister, is saying. Bisson wants to know why there are more highway closures and deaths on highway this year despite more snow clearing equipment. Four people have died in four separate collisions in less than a week in the northeast. The fatal accident took place near Wawa, in Sudbury and by Parry Sound and North Bay. Murray says the reality is winter highway accidents are a tragic part of life. Bisson doesn’t like that response and say there were never this many closures when the Ministry of Transportation cleared the highways.
