Bridge officials in San Francisco’s have approved 76 million dollars in funding for a suicide barrier at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
But now, the question sits as to whether BC’s bridges should follow suit.
Delta Mayor Lois Jackson says she hadn’t heard about this development for San Francisco, but now that she has she says something should be done in B-C too.
“Well I think from my perspective, knowing that this is a possibility I’ll probably take it to our council and our police board and look at the order of magnitude.”
There hasn’t been any previous discussion on barriers for B-C’s bridges.
But Jackson says now that she knows it’s possible, she won’t be shutting down the conversation.
