“My wife and I and 3 small children are getting the hell out of this province. I know many in my trade that are fleeing this city, can’t be good for the economy, good luck Vancouver!”

“I am about a year away from becoming a journeyman electrician, once I get my ticket we’re GONE! My wife and I (middle class) and 3 small children are getting the hell out of this province, maybe even out of the country. Not sure where we are going yet LOL but anywhere is better than Vancouver. I know many in my trade that are fleeing this city, can’t be good for the economy, good luck Vancouver!”

  1. So the reason you are leaving is because of high housing prices? Just 1 reason? Doesn’t seem too smart to me. LOL

    • ever pay $20k for retiling a composite roof on single story 1200 sf ranch? i seen it happen. guys that make enough to keep up aren’t cheap. guys that can’t typically aren’t competent. enjoy.

    • So if it’s not enough that you can’t afford a place to live, what the hell else do you want for a reason to leave. Get a brain!

  2. Why leave the province entirely? There’s more to BC than Vancouver (and Victoria).

    Even Kelowna prices are fairly sane these days.

    • There are relatively few opportunities in Okanagan. It makes much more sense to move to metropolitan areas in Alberta or Southern Ontario.

      • And you do realize that the Okanagan is not the only place in the interior too, right?

        (Besides… electrician… a pretty portable job.)

  3. Vancouver will be a very gentrified city when your small children grow up. Where are future well-paying jobs going to come, when there is no industrial backbone to the place. Move somewhere where you and your family will enjoy a peaceful and nice standard of living. I left Vancouver many years ago, having grown up there. I’ve experienced much better job opportunities and much better standard of living elsewhere….
