**APRIL FOOLS – For those that haven’t looked at the calendar today…it is April 1, 2011. Thanks to everyone who played along with the joke. Have a great weekend from all of us at Energeticcity.ca
We are hearing reports this morning coming from inside the Government that the plans are about to be unveiled for a sky train to be built between Fort St. John and the Alberta Border.
The high tech, state of the art multi-billion dollar project will be a lasting legacy for the Peace Region and will help take large trucks and gas guzzling industry traffic off the road.
The Skytrain is being built for a few reasons:
– Instead of having to four-lane the highway between Fort St. John and the Alberta Border, the skytrain will take traffic off the highway allowing the South Taylor hill to stay as is.
– Northern BC’s economic activity means that we are currently unable to use all of the government money this area receives, so by building the skytrain we will use all of the oil and gas money this area generates without having to send any to the Lower Mainland.
– The Skytrain will quickly get cheaper and more skilled Alberta workers into the Peace Region saving BC residents from having to work.
The train is expected to have stops in Taylor at the soon to be built Village on a Diet Interpretative Centre, the Farmington Store, Mile Zero post, the Encana Events Centre, Pouce Coupe and the Tomslake General Store.
Construction is expected to begin shortly on the estimated 14 billion dollar project.
