London Drugs mulls move over tunnel delay

RICHMOND, B.C — The CEO of London Drugs says the company may have to relocate if the B.C. government doesn’t take action to replace the 59-year-old Massey Tunnel. The government has said it is going back to the drawing board with another study on the fate of the crossing, which links Richmond with Delta across the Fraser River. Congestion is so bad that Clint Mahlman says London Drugs’ head office and/or its distribution centre could have to move out of Richmond. “We have about 50 per cent of our employees live south of the Fraser, so there are employees that carpool, work off-hours and work from home,” said Mahlman. “We’ve had employees quit over the commute.”
