If the oil companies can't/won't do it I can't imagine the small $m millionaire owner of a WHL team could/would. Apparently the province is working on a highway expansion but it hasn't happened to date. I haven't ventured up there yet, but I understand it's treacherous as treacherous comes. There was a highly publisized crash that killed 7 people earlier this year...Anybody I know that has to visit Fort Mac from Edmonton flies to avoid that highway. I would imagine until they get that highway sorted a WHL team is out of the question.
