“Three of my friends are leaving the city. One has already left in the spring, another has left just 2 weeks ago and third is leaving in about 1 month. All 3 are professionals making decent money, 2 of them are leaving the country, one of them is moving to another province. I guess one good thing is that they create job openings for other professionals. There is a good chance I’ll be leaving the country also in the first half of 2012, and i’ll be selling my property when i leave. Not sure how this compares to overall vancouver immigration statistics but I just wanted to throw these anecdotes out there.”

“No offense but who cares? People leave cities all the time and more people move in. End of story.”

Anecdotes about fine young skilled educated professionals leaving are vastly over-represented by sour renters.

We look to post both sorts of anecdotes here — but it’s the former type that appear in abundance. We’d like to post more of the latter, please send along any stories of “fine young skilled educated professionals arriving” (and their circumstances), and we’ll post them. – vreaa
