Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

No, that title does not mean I am going to stop blogging. It is the expression that first occurred to me as I read two news reports today that cover ground this blog has visited more than once.

Firstly, the second Amtrak train is now secured in that the Canada Border Services Agency is giving up its pursuit of an unreasonable payment from Amtrak to allow it to operate.

Secondly, it is being officially acknowledged in BC that rising sea levels due to climate change do pose a serious threat to parts of this region. There is a link to map on this story but interest in this story has, of course, overwhelmed the server where it is kept.

In both cases the view espoused in earlier blog posts has been shown to have been right. I like being right.
