The provincial government unveiled a new highway depot in Renews-Cappahayden Monday morning.

The new depot building, which cost just under $1 million to build, replaces a 50-year-old structure located along the Southern Shore highway.

The 2013 provincial budget includes $4.9 million to construct two depots and  two salt storage facilities.

Transportation and Works Minister Paul Davis said new infrastructure such as the depot is important to meeting the transportation needs of the province.

    If people were smart, EVERBODY would take off for Alberta and let this IDIOTIC so called government sink this province, as it is doing now. I guess the money for the two new depot's must have come from the same spot as the $1 billion she found in 60 days to close the gap of the deficit from $1.6 billion to $566 million on the (DEATH DAY) budget day !!!!!

    Do they actually have any one left to work out of that building? Or are they all gone to Alberta after the layoffs?
