“I am not young and I am an ex-homeowner. I grew up in a house with a garden and my children grew up in a house with a garden, just 10 thousand miles away. Then we moved to Vancouver I took one look and I knew then and there that buying a house here is a definitely a bad idea and so we’ve been living in a co-op ever since. We’ve been trying to enjoy life in this town taking advantage of what it (apparently) has to offer, although as of late it’s been getting increasingly harder to find this place appealing. Still, the reason I am here is my job – a well paying, secure job with good prospects for the foreseeable future and a good pension when I’m done. But first and foremost I love mobility, so we “travel light”, so to speak. If life around here does finally piss me off enough I will take my cash out and move somewhere where the sun shines more than 10% of the time.”
