For decades, forward-thinking rebels and people who don’t understand transit have advocated for a third bridge across the harbour. Those wishful thinkers finally had their dreams come true, albeit on a slightly smaller scale. Much love to you, Sea Bridge—you conveyor of cruise-ship passengers and wayward tourists around the blighted hellscape of Queen’s Marque construction. As a bridge you help shepherd us from ferry terminals to merchant shops and overpriced waterfront cruises. But as a god damn sea bridge, your rollicking swaying amongst the ocean waves reminds us of our nautical history and rises within us the tiniest tinge of motion sickness. Way to go, waterfront.
