A west Quebec mayor is calling on the province to expand Highway 50 after six crashes that killed seven people east of Gatineau in recent years:

Highway 50 is undivided with one lane in each direction from around Masson-Angers to northwest of Montreal, near its end.

L'Ange-Gardien Mayor Robert Goulet said in November there are too many accidents on that part of the highway and that the region deserves better.

Goulet said he can't do much except lobby the provincial government to expand that part of the highway, which was finished in November 2012.
