Grandview Cut | Place | It may look like a natural ravine, but the Grandview Cut is actually man-made. It’s where they got all the soil to fill in False Creek during the First World War. A bunch of people were mad that the Millennium Line of the SkyTrain went through here, which is weird because the Great Northern Railway already did.

Usage | “Apparently, the Grandview Cut is a great place to dump used diapers…”explore-the-lexicon
