EDMUNDSTON, N.B. — Students protesting the slow pace of the twinning the Trans-Canada from Rivire-du-Loup, Que., to Fredericton will not take to the Trans-Canada Highway during next week’s march.
They will instead walk from the Universit de Moncton’s Edmundston campus to the office of Madawaska-Restigouche MP Jeannot Castonguay during the Feb. 18 noon-hour protest.
Mathieu Picard, a vice-president with the student association at the university, says the decision was made in consideration for the safety of marchers.
Five young men from Edmundston and three members of a Montreal family were killed in a Dec. 29 crash on the Trans-Canada in Quebec, near the New Brunswick border.
