Well said. It breaks my heart though to see people who were born here priced right out of the market. Houses are ridiculous. What buys a shack here will often buy a mansion in other parts of the country and usually 2 mansions in many parts of the US and the more of us that live here, the more we damage the things that intrinsically made this city a great place to live.
Tell me how long must a fan be strong? Ans. Always.

I left a beautiful lovely city in 1979, and what I came back to in 1992 just broke my heart.

What's very bad is that unlike other cities that have high real estate prices such as the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, and maybe even Seattle and Toronto in which there's at least a somewhat proportionate higher high-paying job opportunities - i.e. high real estate = high amount of high paying jobs, that's not the case with Vancouver. High real estate is mostly because of foreign investment, and Vancouver is not the best city for young professionals as....assuming you get a decent job....it's not nearly enough to buy a standard home in the city and understandably there's an exodus for university graduates to other cities like those four above.
祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。

改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。

祝你狗年行大運。

恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。

Along with Vancouver having the worst traffic congestion and the highest real estate prices in the country, it also has the highest rent as well for a one 1 bedroom apartment.

For those who are starting their careers and who do not have their own homes and must rent, it does make sense to go to places like Calgary where the rent is less than half of that of Vancouver, while income is comparable. There's absolutely no way that Vancouver's income is twice of that of Calgary for the same occupation, and Calgary has lower sales tax as well.
