This has been brought up previously, but we’re still stuck with the name “Disraeli Freeway”. Do you know who Benjamin Disraeli is and what his connection to Winnipeg is? Nope. Nobody does.


Randy Bachman and Fred Turner, however, have had a huge impact on the City of Winnipeg throughout their 50 years of touring.


It’s 2020, the bridge has been completed for 10 years and it’s time to Let It Ride and re-name the Disraeli Freeway the Bachman-Turner Overpass… because we all know, it’s an overpass and not a freeway.
