Big Tunnel Thing

A 2,400 foot tunnel that starts at the main Canada Post office on Georgia Street and runs to Waterfront Stations is set to be filled and heritage activists are "dismayed" at the plan to destroy a piece of Vancouver's history. The tunnel, built 54 years ago, is an early example of mail delivery technology that is no longer used. Even the mayor, who is likely the last non-engineer to be able to walk through the tunnel, admitted the city had an option to take it over but decided "it would be an enormous expense." [Globe & Mail]
