Pine Grove Halt…the rest stop on the Trans-Canada Highway near Prawda on the way out to the Whiteshell and Lake of The Woods, and home to Zack’s Burger Bus…is going away (maybe).
The grove (and burgers) make for such an idyllic stop that RUSH drummer Neil Peart mentioned stopping there in his travel journal-book, Ghost Rider. Remarkable book, by the way. I highly recommend it.
The Provincial Government is making budget cuts, and apparently the facilities out there are in need of $1.6 million in maintenance if the stop is to remain open after Labour Day.
An online petition has been started, but it doesn’t look like it will make much difference.
