This from Kenora two years ago.


Ontario remains committed to the twinning of Hwy. 17 from the Ontario-Manitoba border easterly to Kenora and will continue to move forward with the first 15-km project (Manitoba to Rush Bay Road, Stages 1 and 2).

Ontario has several steps to complete the delivery of this project including obtaining environmental clearances. In addition, the ministry has to work with First Nation communities, the Metis Nation of Ontario (MNO), property owners and municipalities to identify and attempt to mitigate any potential adverse impacts that may arise as a result of the project.

The ministry is committed to building constructive, co-operative relationships with First Nation and Metis peoples in Ontario, and honouring its duty to consult with First Nations and MNO where proposed MTO activities might adversely affect their rights or interests. Discussions are ongoing and continue towards the common goal of seeing the first 15-km project constructed.

Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford Delayed

I found this to be interesting primarily because of the rarity of P3 projects not opening on time.

The private company in charge of building a new hospital in North Battleford is delaying its completion date.

A public-private partnership (P3) was used for the project, and the province announced Tuesday the company chosen as the vendor — Access Prairies Partnership (APP) — is two to three months delayed.

The reason provided by the province is “a subcontractor unable to deliver according to the overall schedule.”

SaskBuilds Minister Dave Marit said he is unsure of what the specific issues are, but said extra staff and shifts have been added to address the delays.

APP will be fined about $1.25 million per month, said Marit.
Although there are certainly lots of positives and negatives that can be debated concerning the P3 project procurement method, late delivery is not typically among them. While the risk involved needs to be considered when pricing the project, the steep penalty costs will usually ensure that the project is delivered on time.

Here's the full story from the S-P:

Brandon Shoppers Mall - Restaurant Pads in the Parking Lot

The combined Harvey's/Swiss Chalet should be opening this week just in time for the Winter Fair at the Keystone Centre. The basic structure for East Side Mario's is up but much further behind. It was decided to put the Fionn MacCool's on a separate pad. I don't know if it will be proceeding as it has not progressed above the foundation work and is not currently on the online map of the Shoppers Mall:

4. Interchange of TCH at 16 (Mind you that the funding and design were in place. Also how many fatalities have there been?);
5. Interchange of TCH at Elie;
6. 190 Headingley Bypass;
7. Completely grade-separated Perimeter Highway;
8. Interchange of TCH at 207;
9. Twinning of TCH from Falcon Lake to Ontario border;
10. Highway 75 Morris Bypass;
11. Highway 75 Saint Nobert Bypass.

This is my point:
If you think that the government isn’t doing its job, vote it out!
Then you make sure the new one actually keeps the promises.
Who do you propose we vote for? Has any one of the provincial parties ever promised to drag us into at least the 20th century?
Giving you a reason to drink and drive since 1975.
