Tom Cochrane Gets Manitoba Highway Named After Him

As it turns out, life really is a highway for Tom Cochrane as the Manitoba government paints outside the passing lane lines by naming a highway after the Canadian rock icon and native Manitoban.

A 322-kilometre section of PR 391 connecting Lynn Lake and Thompson will be renamed Tom Cochrane’s Life Is A Highway, in honour of the Lynn Lake-born singer, Infrastructure Minister Blaine Pedersen announced today. Cochrane performed an acoustic version of the similarly named hit single in the Legislative Building.

Cochrane’s signature song Life is a highway, from his album Mad, Mad World helped launch him to international fame in 1991. Since that time he hasn’t looked in the rear view mirror.

Cochrane, who was born in 1953, is also the frontman for the rock band Red Rider. He has won eight Juno Awards, is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, an officer of the Order of Canada, and has an honorary doctorate from Brandon University. In September 2009 he was inducted onto the Canadian Walk of Fame.

Canada Wants Mandatory Backup Cameras In All New Cars By 2018

The Canadian government wants to see all new cars sold in Canada to come with rear-view camera systems starting May 1, 2018.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau made the announcement Monday from École Élémentaire Publique Le Trillium in Ottawa.

Garneau proposed new regulations that will require rear-visibility systems on all new vehicles sold in Canada to help drivers see behind their vehicle when they back up.

“I’m not one for tricks, but I do like giving treats, and one of the best ones I can give this Halloween is to make rear-view cameras and displays standard equipment on all new vehicles, including base models. This helps children be seen and provides Canadians with one of the best safety technology systems to reduce back-over collisions,” Garneau said.
