Canfield Cool To Municipality Taking Over Winter Road Maintenance

Kenora mayor Dave Canfield doesn't think many municipalities will jump at the chance of taking over winter road maintenance of provincial highways in the region.

It's an idea being floated by Transportation Minister Glenn Murray.

Canfield says municipalities know all too well the impact of provincial downloading.

Canfield says money given by the province often diminishes, forcing local taxpayers to pick up the tab to maintain the service.
