What a metropolis our little village of McBride is getting to be--they are giving us a traffic light. The truth be known, it is only a pedestrian light for crossing Highway 16, but still, it gives us something in common with other urban centers.
The whole thing seems a bit ridiculous considering the number of pedestrians that cross the highway, and the sparse amount of traffic, but hey, the BC Provincial Elections are coming up next spring, and our current government must be a bit nervous (they are also constructing a gigantic parking lot at the Ancient Forest, farther up the highway).
Now that we will have a traffic light, one can scarcely imagine what other marks of civilization are in store for us in the future.
