MIN­IS­TERS’ CO-OP­ER­A­TION

Journal Pioneer - - FRONT PAGE -

En­hanc­ing road safety, sup­port­ing trade, fos­ter­ing in­no­va­tion, and ad­dress­ing cli­mate change were key pri­or­i­ties dis­cussed at meet­ings of Canada’s min­is­ters of trans­porta­tion and high­way safety Mon­day in Ot­tawa. P.E.I.’s Min­is­ter of Trans­porta­tion, In­fra­struc­ture and En­ergy Paula Big­gar was pleased with the col­lec­tive agree­ment to pri­or­i­tize stronger, safer, and more sus­tain­able trans­porta­tion. She also shared with her col­leagues the steps the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment has taken to make Is­land roads safer through leg­is­la­tion, en­force­ment, education, and en­gi­neer­ing. While the num­ber of driv­ers and ve­hi­cles on Is­land roads has steadily in­creased in the past sev­eral decades, fa­tal­i­ties, col­li­sions, and im­paired driv­ing have con­sis­tently de­creased.
