Crossing highway

Youngsters from the local day care tried out the new crosswalk at Couchiching during an official launch there Monday. The crosswalk—the first in Northwestern Ontario that’s on the Trans-Canada Highway—will allow pedestrians to cross Highway 11 safely. An educational campaign is underway to inform drivers that they need to be prepared to stop there.
