Collected by editorial for use in a February 2002 issue of the Burnaby NewsLeader
Caption from metadata: "Gord Thorneycroft says he used to be able to enjoy his morning coffee looking out onto a quiet, tree-lined lane while working in his garage behind his home on 9th Ave. But workers building the new 10th Ave. connector tore out the trees last September, the City of Burnaby isn't making any promises to erect noise barriers, and his lane has become a thoroughfare to the Bombardier Skytrain plant."
