Canada Line turns one: photos from the opening, part 3

Canada Line turns one: photos from the opening, part 3

The lineup at Oakridge-41st for the Canada Line opening. Taken August 17, 2009.

As I’ve mentioned, in honour of Canada Line’s one-year anniversary on August 17, I’ve dug up some little-seen photos from opening day. It turns out we have a lot of photos, so I’ll be posting them in four installments over the week!

This is part three, with pictures from Oakridge-41st, Langara-49th, and Bridgeport Stations. (Here’s part 1, part 2, and part 4 in this series.)

Again, this is just a small sample of many: see the full gallery of photos in this Flickr set!
