Name that road

  • Feb. 8, 2006 7:00 a.m.

The main road through Queen Charlotte will be facing a name change in the near future.
The Ministry of Transportation currently maintains the road, which runs through town under three names: Third Avenue, Highway 33 and Cemetary Road. Road signs will be replaced over the next five years.
But Mayor Carol Kulesha says Highway 33 is already the official name of another road in the province.
She says suggestions for new names range from Main Street to District Road 33. She noted that the name change may cause inconvenience to those who must change their addresses in ads, the telephone book and on business cards. The fire department, emergency services and RCMP may also be inconvenienced.
Kevin Gibson, a resident along the section called Cemetary Road, says he will be happy with a new street address. He doesn’t care if its called Windy, Rainbow or Ross Road, as long as it’s not Tombstone.
