First of all, I should say right off the bat that the tunnel doesn’t bother me at all. I commute by transit and the bus gets through the tunnel in no time at all. So…for all you people fuming in your cars you might want to think about your mode of transportation.
I understand that some people need to commute by car, but I would hazard a guess that plenty of people driving through the tunnel could take transit if they chose to.
As for planning ahead, I saw no evidence of that when the Liberals put in the Canada Line. It is already at capacity and it is only eight years old. So, the NDP are not the only government to make that mistake. Personally, I would like to see a smaller, less environmentally destructive bridge and the Canada Line extended to White Rock, but I expect I am dreaming in technicolour if I think that is going to happen.
