While the date has been a fixed thing for a few years now, the first tangible sign that the provincial election is coming up came out this week.
Dennis MacKay, the Liberal MLA for Bulkley-Stikine, was probably pleased as punch to announce the five million dollar highway project for his riding, which will see two stretches of Highway 16, one near New Hazelton and the other near Telkwa resurfaced with hot in place recycled asphalt to preserve the pavement.
The work will get under way in April (just before that May 12 election date) and be completed by July 19th, at which time we suspect that MLA McKay is hoping he is still the MLA for the official ribbon cutting photo opportunity.
