' ' . '. '. 7 The construction job embraces i "t,"11 llJ r ""'"i a"' the first eleven miles of the 18. j "PaWy, Agassiz and Hope to view way extension. All were impressed mile "missing link" in what north shore residents hope will be the alternative, direct and toll-free route between the Fraser Canyon-Hope-Princeton highways and Vancouver. About 75 business men representative of Boards of Trade, city and municipal councils between Hope, Agassiz and Vancouver, formed the motor caravan. They later held an enthusiastic "On to Haig" dinner meeting at Harrison Hot Springs hotel at which Hon. R. C. MacDonald, MLA for Dewdney, was guest of honor. More than 25 cars assembled in Agassiz Wednesday bringing delegates from Vancouver, North Bur-naby, Port Moody, Maple Ridge, by the scenic features of the Northside Highway between the Coast and Agassiz "The sunny, scenic route through the Fraser Valley." Big thrill of the trip came when the caravan swung onto the newly constructed grade of the highway extension which closely parallels the CPR right-of-way where it commences what is claimed to be the longest straight section of CPR track in B.C. The new piece of road, the delegates were told by enthusiastic Agassiz boosters, will hold a similar record for the B.C. highway system.

Cullough of Kent Municipality, the party left the new highway and took a wide semi-circular drive eastward on Seabird and Walleach roads to rejoin the new grade two or three miles nearer this year's objective, Ruby Creek. Hon. R. C. MacDonald, referring to a recent inspection trip he had made over the nearly completed Hope-Princeton highway, declared: "Traffic will be so heavy that there will have to be an alternate route through the Fraser Valley." "I personally believe we should get this road built first it will be less expensive, and then let us all get behind the building of another bridge across the Fraser." The sum of $200,000 is earmark ed for the highway extension and assurance given of a further $100,-000 required to clear and grade the road through to Ruby Creek. Public Works Department, he pointed out, is doing the work it self and doing it cheaper than if let to contract. Local labor is being employed and is giving good value being keenly interested in the success of the project. Clearing and grading operations have practically reached Seabird Bluff over which has been located an easy grade which will not be expensive to 'construct. It is level going then to Ruby Creek and for several miles beyond that point. Petain Bluff forms the only obstacle and while it is rock work, this does not form any serious ob stacle to modern road construction, the party was told. "It is our duty now, declared Hon. Mr. MacDonald, "to convince the government of the necessity of completing this alternative high way. Remember It is eight miles shorter or 16 miles shorter to the motorist or trucker making the return trip." Harry Fooks, pioneer resident of the district with 50 years of service to his credit as reeve, councillor and clerk of Kent Municipality, recalled the long struggle to secure the highway between Mission City and Agassiz. He viewed the new grade as he spoke from the running board of a Public Works truck and stated: "We want this road completed first. It is more essential than any other project to Agassiz, the whole north side of the Fraser Valley and to Vancouver." Seabird Island, an Indian Reserve, which the new highway traverses for several miles, originally comprised 10,000 acres, said Reeve McCullough in addressing the group. It has been eroded by the Fraser River to about 6,000 richly fertile acres. It was above flood level in 1948 although low-lying land. "The time will come," declared the reeve, "when it will have to be taken over to produce food for growing Vancouver." "This highway must go right through to Haig," Reeve McCullough emphasized. He gave credit to the Boards of Trade forming the Northside Highway Committee and to Hon. R. C. MacDonald for the progress being made and declared "Hon. Mr. MacDonald is with us and I believe he will see the road through to Haig." District Engineer George Stowe, New Westminster, who accompan- Cultus Lake Mrs. L. J. Duggan and family, Bob, Roy and Anne, Victoria, are spending a few days with Mrs. Duggan's cousin, Mrs. R. J. Hart and Mr. Hart. Mrs. Gilbert Fraser and children, Jack and Shirley Barnhouse, who have spent two weeks in Mrs. May's home, have returned to Vancouver. ied Hon. Mr. MacDonald is with us and I believe he will see the road through to Haig." District Engineer George Stowe, New Westminster, who accompanied Hon. Mr. MacDonald answered the numerous questions regarding the engineering features of the highway. It was recalled by the municipal officials in the party that Mr. Stowe has an intimate knowledge of the Northside Highway through years of association with its construction, particularly the extension of Agassiz and the original survey, years ago, between Agassiz and Haig. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Pells and Roeer are SDendine a hnliri.iv with their daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Archer, Tacoma, Wash. They are returning with Mr. and Mrs. Archer and expect to spend a few days in Victoria. Mr. and Mrs. A. Dyer and family, Tommie and Sheila, who have spent two weeks in Rosedene, returned to their home in Vancou-i ver. Recent guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Minckler were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Minckler and family.
