  1. In a bizzarre and ironic way, this is a case of the chickens coming home to roost. This building is the BC Electric Building that was built as a station and hub for the electrified tramway service that connected the lower mainland before our modern transit service. Vehicles would enter and exit the building diagonally and travel up the Fraser Valley, Kingsway(via Queen's park) and Vancouver Via Marpole. My G.Grandfather built the cars at the main facility at the bottom of 12th and Stewardson, where the PetroCan is today. Perhaps this New Flyer heard the call of his ancestors.
