Graham Road ‘definitely the worst road in Kent County,’ says MLA
Jul 05, 2019
Upset with the state of an important connector road into Elsipogtog First Nation, a group of elders took matters into their own hands this week.
About a dozen people shovelled dirt and rock from the back of a pickup truck into potholes on Graham Road — craters, they say, that have made the road unsafe to travel and impede the movement of emergency vehicles.
James Augustine, one of the elders shovelling on Tuesday and Wednesday, said roads in the community are “absolutely the worst roads in Canada, right here.”
