EDMUNDSTON, N.B. — Hundreds of students in Edmundston staged a highway protest saying there have been too many deaths on the Trans-Canada Highway near the boundary with Quebec.
About 500 students took to the streets, calling on Ottawa to widen the two-lane stretch of road between Edmundston and Riviere-du Loup, Quebec.
The high school and university protesters marched from the University of Moncton’s Edmundston campus to the office of Liberal MP Jeannot Castonguay.
Castonguay was not at his office.
More than 89 people have been killed on Route 185 in the last 10 years.
