Scope and content
Item is a segment of a video which consists of interviews representing various opinions on the 1970 report on the Greater Vancouver Area Rapid Transit Study and its recommendations. Those participating in interviews in this segment include Dr. Julius Kane, professor at the University of British Columbia and Allan Kelly, Chairman of the Greater Vancouver Regional District. It is also possible that some of the voice-overs are those of Derrick Mallard as he does not appear in the video but is credited in the full version.
In this particular excerpt, Dr. Julius Kane explains why he would rather invest money in increased, toll-free bus services than capital development for rapid transit. Allan Kelly, on the other hand, explains why fees for transit should be paid by users, and why he believes rapid transit may be a good fit for Vancouver. At some points the interviews become voice-overs for video snippets of traffic in Vancouver.
Appears to be a transfer from EIAJ. Vertical ghosting lines; minor tracking errors; head switching; moderate video drop outs throughout. Audio only on channel 2, segments of low audio. Ends abruptly.
