Name[edit]

I have scoured the web and I can find no source that lists the official name of this bridge as the "McDonald Bridge". From everything I have read, this bridge is and always has been the "CPR Bridge" or "CP Railway Bridge". If anyone has a source that shows it to be called "McDonald Bridge", I'd love to see it. Otherwise I see every reason to move this page to "CPR Bridge (Saskatoon)". Drm310 02:36, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

I stand corrected. I found one source on the city's website - a bicycle facility network study. However, I do not completely trust the information. The report was done by a consulting firm, and they also used the name "Idylwyld Bridge" two years after the bridge was renamed the Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge. Drm310 03:09, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Broken source link; additional source needed[edit]

The PDF source regarding the decision to build the University Bridge instead of additional traffic lanes on the CPR bridge no longer exists. However, the same information can be found on the City of Saskatoon website here.

Also, is there a source for the declaration that the CPR Bridge is one of the most well-known places for suicides in Saskatoon? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Businessbard (talkcontribs) 22:37, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
