What the Burnaby Mountain Gondola Teaches us about Loss

“The working theory amongst city builders whenever a group of NIMBYs pipe up about any given development in an urban environment is that people simply don’t like change.

That’s nonsense. People love change.

If you get a sought-after job, a new girlfriend/boyfriend, a first car or win a million dollars your life is going to change dramatically but you’d be hard-pressed to find someone complaining about that.

What people don’t like isn’t change, it’s loss.”
