Protesters Crash Massey Tunnel Groundbreaking Ceremony

Vancouver Sun reports, “As a ground-breaking ceremony, the one organized by the B.C. Liberals [on April 5] for the Massey Tunnel Replacement project was a bit of a bust.” About two dozen protesters, “bent on staging a mock news event of their own in opposition to the plan to replace the tunnel under the Fraser River with a high-level, 10-lane [toll] bridge over it,” forced British Columbia’s transportation minister and other dignitaries to forgo any digging and move the ceremony inside a fire hall “where the minister’s words could be heard by the assembled news media.”
