Highway of Heroes - Trent River Memorial Bridge Proposal sign now

Dear Mr. McGuinty,

Please endorse the Trent River Memorial Bridge Proposal!

We, the undersigned, would like your government to endorse this new Proposal to create a lasting monument in Trenton to the brave men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces who have been killed while serving our country on missions abroad.

The Trent River Memorial Bridge Proposal will complement the recent Highway of Heroes designation along Highway 401. This Proposal will ensure that a lasting tribute is provided to honour our fallen soldiers, by designating part of our built infrastructure as a memorial to the soldiers valour and their ultimate sacrifice.

The Proposal involves the construction of commemorative monuments, honouring our fallen soldiers, on the existing Trent River Bridge on Highway 401 in Trenton. A new memorial park, providing a scenic lookout, rest area and Veterans Memorial will be constructed adjacent to the Trent River Memorial Bridge. This new roadside park will provide people with a peaceful, quiet place to remember our soldiers who did not return home from their missions.

While the intentions behind the proposed Highway of Heroes signs are very good, the way in which the commemorative message is conveyed is rather insufficient in our opinion. Highway signs only last 7 to 10 years and we fear that the Highway of Heroes signs may not be around for future generations to value. Few people take time to read road signs and the rushed environment of a freeway does not allow people an opportunity to pause for reflection. It is extremely important that a memorial park and bridge be established so that the bravery or our soldiers will never be forgotten.

The efforts of our valiant soldiers are far too important to merely commemorate on a series of small road signs along a busy freeway. Mr. McGuinty, please give our fallen soldiers the recognition that they deserve and endorse the Trent River Memorial Bridge Proposal.
