this does discount the poor state of MTL infrastructure. Unfotunately these are not problems that are easily fixed.not only does it take money, but a lot of time for plans and construction to replace old structures.
Exactly, I'm also sure that it was the vibrations and all engineers who works at my job with me say the exact same thing, people just react and say things even if they don't know at all the subject they are talking about. There is also a limit of project they can do at the same time in a city.
