To Bridge or Not To Bridge the Massey Tunnel?

Ted Murphy  of the Delta Optimist ponders what is going to happen to those plans for the  George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project, saying it is on “a death watch”. He also notes that  “many will be rejoicing at the prospect of the $3.5-billion undertaking not moving forward.”

I  am not sure people are “rejoicing” at the prospect of the Massey Bridge being shelved, but anything that will  impact the  sensitive river delta, the agricultural land, and was voted against by every mayor on the Mayors Council  (save one) should have a solid rethink. Are there other locations that this crossing should be bolstered? Why do we keep throwing our hands in the air about “congestion”? Why are we not encouraging ride share incentives  and rapid transit/bus options? Why are we still not asking the Port of Vancouver to be a good corporate citizen and be part of the solution?…
