JACKSONVILLE, N.B. — A truck driver’s wife is turning her attention toward Ottawa in her continuing campaign to have wildlife fencing placing along Route 7 between Fredericton and Saint John.
Brenda Pike’s husband, Tracy, of Jacksonville, was injured this summer when he hit a moose along Route 7, and Pike has since been a leading voice for government action to get moose off the highway.
As part of her campaign, she not only intends to write to Prime Minister Jean Chrtien, Defence Minister John McCallum and Transportation Minister David Collenette, but she dressed up as a moose and joined in with the Halloween spirit last night.
Pike attached yellow moose warning signs, like those seen along the highway, to the back and front of the moose costume.
While making the rounds alongside trick-or-treaters last night, Pike circulated a petition seeking support for the safety campaign.
