Well, I would think that having the Canada Line down No. 3 Road somewhat negates the purpose of having a line on the same route. Would this run along the Fraser, then head north onto Willingdon? And then past SFU, connect back up with the Millennium Line?
I think a good route would be to run along Hastings (where they plan to put the B-Line), all the way to Willingdon, then turn south and make a final connection with Metrotown. This would be different from the proposed B-Line, which is supposed to just stay on Hastings all the way to SFU.
Frankly, I think that we shouldn't be paying insane amounts of money to make superfluous connections to universities unless they do a cost sharing program (whether this means SkyTrain or an aerial tram to SFU, or underground SkyTrain to UBC).
Anyways, I think the route I mentioned would not only help rejuvenate the DTES, but also provide Northeast Van, the PNE, and BCIT with rapid transit, while making a vital cross through between North and South Burnaby.
