The Viaducts - To Be or Not To Be? That is the question . . .
The Vancouver City Planning Committe would like us to consider the question of removing the Viaducts. I attened a presentation last night at Sceince World by a group of panelists who detailed the reasons for removing the Viaducts. I went with an open mind and no definite position on the matter. I left with a certianty that removing the Viaducts will be good for our city.

At its meeting on October 20, 2015, Vancouver City Council will receive a presentation regarding the Removal of the Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts, and refer the matter to the following meeting to hear from speakers:
