A beautiful city on the west coast of Canada about 40% the size of Toronto, but offering much more by way of quality.

Pros include hottest women and cars, best beaches, cleanest air, best weather in Canada, nicest architecture, densest skyline, highest population density, most boats per capita, always no 1,2, or 3 in the world for quality of life.

Cons include the worst congestion, worst drug problem, poorest ghetto, the least affordable real estate in the country (families live in condos because houses are for millionaries only), and outside of May-October it rains a hell of a lot.

Except for Torontonians, whom from personal experience have nothing good to say bout the city (never expected rivalry among Canadians), just about anyone who has ever visited the place return with praises for the scenery, street life, etc.
Their city has become a verb...I study ecology in UCLA and they've got us reading up on "Vancouverism", so I go wtf. But I've been there before and their skyline is tremendous... puts LA's downtown to shame even without tall buildings!

A beautiful city on the west coast. One of the few places in Canada with potential to be a world city. The climate is moderate and it never gets cold, however it rains alot and heavy overcast is highly common. The best drugs in Canada are available here thus meaning, the best drugs in the world. Vancouver is a real relaxed, open minded, multi cultural, hippie town. The people are friendly, and there is endless things to do. Plus the scenery is gorgeous. However there is a downside. The lower eastside (east hastings and main) is the poorest neighbourhood in Canada. The highest concentration of HIV/AIDS in the western world, and alot of people have hepatitas. However if you don't have unprotected sex with the hookers and don't share needles you should be fine. The drug epidemic does take away from the city (slightly) however you don't see as many junkies shooting up in the streets due to the 'safe shoot up center'.
K: I love Vancouver.
A: I hate that rainy, hippie infested, shit pit!
K: Your loss.

Vancouver is large city in British Columbia, Canada. Vancouver was also put on top of Economist's Liveability List at 98.8 for liveability. Vancouver has been the top city now for five years. Vancouver truly is the best city to live on on Earth. Vancouver is a beautiful place and hopefully someday, you will be able to visit.
