Should we mourn the end of the Ste-Cat bubble tunnel?

Globe and Mail has an opinion piece bewailing the Plante admin’s abolition of the Ste-Catherine bubble tunnel plan, but the text actually explains some legit reasons to abandon it: people doing business on the street saw no advantage in it, it risked making the necessary roadwork take longer and be more complicated, and the plan kept evolving in weird ways. Who thinks it would “only” have cost $3.8M once it began to involve “inflated pavilions along the fringes of the site”?
