A growing number of residents in the St. Margaret's Bay area are becoming increasingly alarmed by the province's proposed connector road to highway 103.

The M-P for South Shore- St. Margaret's, Gerald Keddy says a second route, more removed from residential development, is a better option.

"It will cost the government a little bit more money but at the end of the day is a much better route, and doesn't require destroying existing homes," says Keddy.

Keddy wrote the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal asking that family homes be spared in the development.

Bill Estabrooks says construction will be completed next year after careful planning and continued consultation.

Lilydale Collision

Emergency Health Services transported four people to South-Shore hospitals after a two-vehicle collision on Saturday.

Lunenburg County RCMP responded to the call at the intersection of Highway 332 and highway 324 in Lilydale.

Both vehicles were extensively damaged.

Those injured in the crash were treated for undetermined injuries at the South Shore Regional and Fisherman's Memorial Hospitals.

RCMP do not suspect alcohol was a factor.
