Letter: Deal with tunnel, already

Dear Editor,

A few years ago, while at 30-plus thousand feet, en-route from YVR to Heathrow Airport my seat neighbour, a charming, young European man, and I engaged in conversation.  He was part of a team of engineers which had been contracted to evaluate the Massey Tunnel.

  His couched evaluation of the device through which we, thousands of drivers, travel weekly, if not daily, was this:  “If it were me, or one of my family members, I’d find an alternate route to get from one side of the river to the other, even if it meant driving further and for longer.”

Our governments have the data.  They have a number of reports. What are our so-called representatives  waiting for.....a major catastrophe? Represent us, as you were elected and are paid to do.  Hesitation and procrastination are the hallmarks of the timid and weak.  Just do it.
