The Province was set to break ground on the new $3.5 billion dollar Massey Bridge project today but opponents had other plans. The 10 lane span is meant to address traffic congestion. Critics though claim it's a waste of money. Jordan Armstrong reports.
Vancouver Mayor and Mayors' Council Chair Gregor Robertson is maintaining his position against the Massey Tunnel replacement.
“The Pattullo Bridge replacement is certainly first and foremost our top priority for bridges,” said Robertson.
“I think it can be a much quicker improvement and investment with an additional tunnel there versus a gigantic bridge.”
