BTO Bridge Honor Sought

A new bridge in Winnipeg, Canada due to open in 2013 is the subject of a petition being promoted by a Canadian radio duo that wants the span named in honor of  Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Saying Randy Bachman and Fred Turner have '...represented Winnepeg to the world for over 30 years with their straight-ahead, industrial strength Rock n' Roll', Greg Glatz and Marlo Boux of station CJOB are calling on the mayor and other officials to officially name the bridge Bachman-Turner Overdrive.  More than 350 signatures were collected in the early going.  One factor that could make officials apply the brakes; Tim Bachman, Randy's brother and an early member of the band, is facing charges for having had sex with an underage girl (story).
