“I left Vancouver about 15 years ago after growing up & being educated there. Vancouver is THE most beautiful city in the world – when it’s sunny. Unfortunately, those days are few. I don’t want to put down my hometown but wake up people – those real estate prices are just stupid. Created more by poor government policy than anything. Greed combined with short term thinking to make present careers look good. It’s good to see that people are waking up and realizing it’s just not worth it. Being house poor in a rainy city with a bogus transit system. Most livable city – my derriere! The good news is that there are great alternatives in terms of where to live. In the short term there’s adjustment but I have no desire to move back to grey wet days. The thought of living in Vancouver actually depresses me. If you live in Vancouver, seek God: it’s possible to be salt and light in the darkest of places. Your only other option is to wallow in a dark, damp, grey, downward spiral of negativity and depression while you wait for the next sunny day.”
