Welcome to Richmond

March 1st, 2021 — The skytrain on its way over the Fraser River to Richmond. Along the west side of the bridge is a bike lane and at each end there is a welcome sign; on the north it’s to Vancouver, on the south it’s to Richmond. Neither are pretty. When the skytrain extension to Richmond was proposed there was opposition to it being elevated; that it would destroy the ambience of Richmond. Geoff Plant, the local MLA and attorney general, was asked to comment. He said, “Ambience? Richmond doesn’t have any ambience”.
