The Great Pyramid & Pacific at BurrardTuesday, May 02, 2017
The Great Pyramid of Kufu at Giza is one of the wonders of the world. It has been said that workers built it on a diet of onions. Which ever you look at this it is a true wonder that without iron tools ancient Egyptians were able to build this wonder.
In Vancouver in this 21st century I have observed that the intersection of Pacific at Burrard has been in construction for over a year. Stretches of Burrard from 4th to 16th were blocked for close to a year. While a lot was said and done about how businesses lost revenue during the building of the Cambie Line Skytrain I wonder if any of those who live or have businesses on Burrard will ever be compensated.
I have looked everywhere (including in my emasculated Vancouver Sun) for some sort of progress report or at the very least an explanation for the delay of this work. City Hall has been silent on this one.
My solution would be to import Egyptians and feed them onions.
