Why be against progress?

The issues about LRT versus SkyTrain and the replacement of the Massey Tunnel is getting to be repetitious and boring. That is the reason why most readers are ignoring them.

I believe SkyTrain will eventually be extended from King George Station, and the Massey Tunnel will eventually be replaced. It is only a question of time.

Not everyone is against progress. If we were against progress, we would have no transmission towers to bring us hydro power, TV or cellphones, no railroads to transport our natural resources and passengers, no highways or trucks on them to bring us our consumer goods, no oil or natural gas pipelines bringing energy to our homes, and no ships to transport  our natural resources to the world, and return with cars, trucks, and household goods. Our whole economy would come to a standstill.
