EDMONTON, Alta. — With the municipal election heating up, it’s clear that voters in this Alberta city are most concerned about the condition of the city’s roads and fuel prices.
A recent survey of over 400 Edmontonians indicates that infrastructure is the number one concern residents have (which includes road conditions) while eight per cent say fuel prices are the biggest issue on their mind.
Current Mayor, Bill Smith, admits roads are a big concern. “Infrastructure is a big problem facing next council,” Smith tells local media.
Smith has been fighting to make the province responsible for the well-travelled Yellowhead Trail through Edmonton.
“It’s so important to commerce that, I believe strongly, it’s something that I’m going to work with the premier if I’m honored to get back in, so that it becomes a provincial highway.”
