The BC Rail Station in North Vancouver: wtf?

Maybe "Metro Vancouver" could just wait a few doggone months to see who is the legal owner of BC Rail ... before deciding to turn this significant BC Rail Station site into a ... a ... a sewage treatment plant (for cryin' out loud).

North Vancouver District Mayor  Richard Walton stands at the former B.C. Rail station at McKeen and  Pemberton avenues in North Van, the planned site for a sewage  treatment plant.

There is a bad smell about federal plans to dump the cost of $1.4-billion worth of sewage-treatment upgrades on Vancouver and the North Shore, say residents and politicians of both areas ...

Maybe it's just the government's way of saying what they really feel about BC Rail...or what's left of it. Garbage. Sewage. Not worth remembering. You can bet certain members of the cabal in Victoria are finding this highly amusing.
 
Fall Federal Election, and guess what will be the top of the garbage heap topic....sewage.

Fall Recall for North Shore MLA......ditto
 
I'm very familiar with that property- I would bet my shoes it's beyond contaminated. Before BC Rail took it over it belonged to a mining supply company as a yard for everything.I'm sure the ground is so laced with chemical soup it'll end up polluting the sewage.
 
oh no, another False Creek clean up job to cost in excess of fifty million dollars
 
I'm fine with the North Shore Station becoming a sewage treatment plant as long as they use it too process Campbell and his ilk! Or they can just flush them into the Juan de Fuca like the rest of the solid waste!
 
The point I was making, folks, is that the North Vancouver terminal for is a very significant, symbolic, strategic point on the old British Columbia Railway line ...

that the ownership of the old BC Rail line is in serious doubt ...

and that perhaps the North Shore can re-consider its values, as in:

which would they rather have -- the major railway terminal for the province -- or a sewage plant?

Oh, of course, it's just a theoretical discussion,
but ...
