Porous Horace: Heh. I knew I'd get some good snarky replies. Thanks, maudites Anglaises.

Vous emmerder les Anglais, vous sentez la douleur, aussi simple que cela.

put shakers on each of the cables, close bridge, turn them on, let it fall, turn them off, open bridge to traffic.

seems simple fix. happens what? 2-5 times a year to affect commute traffic?

change1211: Wow, there is some pathetic Vancouver hate going on in this thread. If it's such a terrible city then how come it keeps on getting ranked as one of the best cities to live in?

Because it has a HUGE marketing department.

In reality, Vancouver is a shiathole. Everything in Vancouver is poorly-made, overpriced, and sold by people who would sooner miturate in your ocular cavities then smile in your direction. Vancouver is a dead amusement park, staffed by accursed souls who grew up in an insane asylum.

Vancouver people. Small hands. Smell like cabbage.

"Woah! There goes the windshield."

That guy made me laugh. I like how there isn't anyone ranting and raving. The most anyone said was that woman saying... "it should be closed down" followed by the announcer's " was."

Clicking the link for me gets:

I just wish these idiot webdevs would code sites with the assumption people block their random insecure scripts from running.  To me its weird to demand my browser run all your sh*t just to show a damn youtube.
Did a quick look on youtube, didn't find this specific video.  Apparently they've had some trouble with this bridge before, though.
On February 10, 2012, during construction of the replacement bridge, a crane collapsed, causing a 90-tonne concrete section of bridge decking to drop into the water below. While no one was injured, the accident delayed subsequent construction.  WorkSafe BC inspectors evaluated the safety practices on the construction site.
On December 19th, 2012, cold weather caused ice to accumulate on the supporting cables, periodically dropping to the car-deck below.
ICBC, the vehicle insurance entity in British Columbia, reported 60 separate claims of ice-damage during the incident. In addition, one driver required an ambulance due to injuries. The bridge was closed for several hours while engineers investigated.
