The pessimist in me would say this is a result of NIMBYism... but in reality the truck would have been hauling that route anyway.
Up until this point in time all major roadworks by Ministry of Highways and private land development projects relied on gravel barged in through Tunstall Bay.
Local residents in Tunstall were understandably upset with this longstanding arrangement and protested to block access when the Cowan Point development was being constructed around Josephine Lake.
As barges were no longer viable this truck was hauling gravel exacvated from behind the Building Centre which being processed up in Valhalla for use as bedding for utilities.
Land development and roadworks projecs from that point forward relied on gravel imported by ferry or more often crushed onsite / locally.
I remember sitting upstairs in our apartment on my dads rolling office chair and suddenly started to roll around….. 🤔🤣
I remember that day well ! That little cottage was our fibre arts weaving house. It was knocked off it’s pins but nobody was hurt. 👍
I’m sure Jagjit remembers this day too, probably VHS’s all fallen off the racks and strewn everywhere.
I was on shift that day, prepping for opening!
Oh I remember that day!
Richard Goth and Linda Goth wasn’t your loom that building!!
Ha! My sis and I got a good scare that day. We were at home upstairs and it felt like an earthquake.
LOL oh that day
Yes, somewhere I have the roll of pics I took that day… still remember the sound of the truck coming down the hill trying to brake.
Starting Monday, British Columbians wanting to access restaurants and other recreational spaces can no longer use their original proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Instead, they’ll have to use the province's vaccine card in digital or paper form.
Residents were able to use their original proof of vaccination, such as the wallet card given out at vaccination clinics, as part of a transition period to the province's vaccine card program.
The new vaccine card features a person’s name, confirmed vaccination status and a QR code that’s scanned upon entry. You can save a copy of the card on your phone or print a paper copy. Residents currently need to show proof of one dose of COVID-19 vaccine using the vaccine card. Starting Oct. 24, proof of two doses will be required to access non-essential spaces.
