The growth of South Glens and Cardiff over the last five years has resulted in making Cardiff Road busier all the time. Since the road has never been upgraded to reflect the growth factor, we all recognize the problems. […]

Reading Time: 3 minutesBy Stephen Dafoe

Morinville – Rising waters on 97 Street and 79 Avenue in South Glens prompted many phone calls to Town of Morinville offices Tuesday as well as a visit from Edmonton’s CTV to investigate the matter.
