Oc­to­ber 1997

Vancouver Magazine - - Throw Back -

Among the chief con­cerns of the day was the Lions Gate Bridge so­lu­tion. As guest edi­tor Dou­glas Cou­p­land put it then: “One of these days a Volvo full of nuns and pup­pies is go­ing to fall right through what re­mains of the driv­ing sur­face.” We got our act to­gether and re­ha­bil­i­tated the bridge at the turn of the mil­len­nium, al­though the more rad­i­cal ideas, in­clud­ing a dou­ble-decker bridge and a gon­dola cross­ing, were scrapped.
