The road just reopened.

Imagine living in a region where a town of 20,000 people is literally relegated to two goat trails if the single, windy, hilly highway with numerous two-lane sections without detours is blocked by accidents every few weeks.

Or a region of 400,000 people dependant on two lane windy, mountainous highways as emergency escape routes.

Nah, that would never happen!

First he wants Calgary sprawl, now he wants an eight-line freeway to get there.

Like I’ve said, we’ve backed ourselves into such a ridiculous situation that we ‘like’ endangering our lives by creating choke points unfathomable to the rest of the western world.

I mean our sole escape route out of #yyj is Main Street in Lytton.

On a happy note the driver who was involved in this accident is doing much better all things considered. Still hospitalized with surgery coming up . We came  close to loosing him .We still would like to thank the off duty paramedic who stopped and started CPR before the life support showed up .Please message me if you know his name .

Traffic has returned to normal at the intersection of Johnson at Broad Streets after Victoria police blocked off the area Saturday morning.

Police had the right traffic lane cordoned off at the intersection just after 10 a.m. VicPD officers at the scene would not comment to Black Press Media. The lane was reopened at 10:30 a.m.

Officers were bagging items that were on the ground, next to a bike that was lying on its side near the intersection. Two pylons marked where a red substance stained the road on Broad Street, just south of the intersection.

“red substance” stained the road.

“red substance” stained the road.

Just human blood, no big deal.

A random guy got stabbed a few times in the gut.

Just another typical morning in the downtown Victoria run by Helps and her band of hapless helpers.
