RAV Line | Nickname | The temporary name given to the SkyTrain track that we now call The Canada Line. It stood for Ricmond Airport Vancouver. It was built by war-profiteers using non-union labour and it pretty much destroyed Cambie Village for a while, but hey, it sure is efficient and it’s named after our country, so it can’t be all bad!

Usage: “The RAV Line should have gone down the Arbutus Corridorexplore-the-lexicon
