Cowtrail 63 has always been murder highway.  With all the wealth created by thousands of workers in the Tar Sands, there should be a MODERN, four lane highway between Albian Sands and Calgary.  What is there instead, a monument to gov't pandering to the oil companies, MURDER ROAD, a two lane death trap.  We all know good bros. who have been blood sacrifices to maximizing profit at our expense.  Even traveling by Diversified's Junkyard Specials we take our lives in our hands to go up there.  Then  if it looks like the tarsands cos. will not make exorbitant profits, then they shut down over $50 billion worth of projects, leaving us holding the bag.  Then there are the BS stories about us giving up what we and our parents fought for, so the gods of BIG OIL will build the plants.  The mighty gods will learn much to their regret that they can only push so far, and they will lose the whole ball of wax.  That is coming as sure as the sun will rise.

My deepest and most sincerest condolences to the late Mr. Sutton. Cry this highway is literally a killer.I always hated driving on there,seen too many dumb accidents due to speed and lack of respect for other people on this highway.i believe they should have twinned this road but i am sure there would be accidents still,due to people who are in a rush for no good reasons.I think if the road was 4 lanes,would have to really make sure the speed is regulated strictly,cause i can see more people wanting to speed,thinking it's an open highway.

As for the family,that's the most important thing we should remember,I pray they are staying strong and well looked after,I know what it's like to lose a father,it still hasn't got any easier to me.I hope they are well and able to push forward.my thoughts & sympathy are with them all!  Cry
