79% of Trail voters want Columbia River pedestrian bridge

The mayor of Trail is celebrating the result of Saturday’s referendum which saw a convincing “yes” vote for the pedestrian bridge idea.

Almost 80% of the near 2,000 people who voted were in favour of borrowing almost $5 million for the initiative.

Here’s Dieter Bogs.


1,565 said “yes” while 411 said “no”.

Turn-out was 35%.

Bogs says council and some residents worked hard at pushing the “yes” vote.

It’s now up to Trail,Rossland and Warfield to negotiate a deal on the sewer crossing with Trail paying for the pedestrian and extra utility components.
