    Sure, if you front me 50k.

    Cash only please, though.

    Yeah.... But in the end nobody complains about the rivet plates, everyone raves about the iconic addition to the skyline.

    The cynic in me would call that a frivolous bid. Either way, they probably dodged a bullet... Unless one of them is 'Plan B'.

    Granted, Thales submitted a tender and took the work. But when most respondents are like "ugh, what the hell are you asking for? This doesn't even make sense!", you might want to stop and re-evaluate...

    Thales had to go on the counteroffensive though, the fact remains that they had five years to fix the issues and couldn't.

    If you remember, there was a major service outrage in early February, ...

    Not exactly, the NDP is promising to build the East Clearwater Highway if they get re-elected.

    Come to think of it, they're probably taking the opportunity to get a bunch of prep work for the extension done while it's closed.

    Oof.

    Well, NAIT will have no service this summer. It's not actually Metro line's fault this time for once but the effects are felt most there unfortunately.

    I liked the original design of the library. All they needed to do on the exterior was have chequerboard windows instead of slits (and remove the extension - have it at the back instead of the front)....

    So I was walking around university today, and behold:

    It's still there after all these years! I never noticed.

    Any soil dug up would probably be pretty contaminated, which is another point for the bridge. Regardless, I don't think building Rathole v2.0 would make people very happy.

    I don't think it's hard to see a political motive in, say, China grounding its entire fleet less than 24 hours after the incident. That's not enough time to even attempt any rescue efforts, let alone...
