WOODSTOCK, N.B. — Although a sign says so, a provincial cabinet minister says no one will be charged a toll along the Trans-Canada Highway in New Brunswick.
The Woodstock First Nation has erected a sign saying, “Toll Plaza Coming Soon” near a section of the highway that cuts across band land. The sign has been erected to bring attention to a land dispute between the band and the province.
“People will not be charged a toll for travelling the Trans-Canada Highway in New Brunswick,” says Brad Green, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs. “We are concerned about the suggestion that any group may seek to establish a toll.”
Plans are going ahead for a twinned highway around the land in question, says Green.
