I was on my way from Sechelt to Gibsons to guest star in a musical "Gibsons Gold" lampooning the town winning most livable community in the world.

I was appalled that drivers just didn't have the time of day for these duckling and just drove around them across the double solid yellow line. People were driving 80km an hour in this bend.

Where is our reverence for Life?

Its so sad to see that human civilization has not considered wildlife corridors in their urban planning.

This incident reminds me of the time someone drove over top of a mother duck while driving off the Langdale ferry terminal, orphaning all the ducklings. One of the crew managed to round up all the baby's and raise them to release.

What do you think happened next?

Here is a discussion about a recent accident on the highway with comments from the community, photos of news stories from over the years.
