They will be forced to build a new highway. The talk of a high speed link between Edmonton and Calgary should be expanded to Ft.Mac. Thousands of workers commute every week and everyday between Edmonton, Calgary and Ft.Mac. I know....your gonna ask about the everyday comment. My boss up at Albian used to travel between Ft.Mac and Calgary everyday!
They would need a huge budget even with sponcers it would be tight and with a plane that would take up 10-20% with hotels etc.
