a city that thinks its better than toronto, but really, really, really isnt. Toronto will always be the best city and vancouver and other lame cities like edminton and calgary need to relax and stop being so god damn jealous! Vancouver is crowded with methwhores and heroin addicts, and has serious drug issues that need to be sorted out before the city shames Canada at the olympic games in 2010!
Yo man, vancouver is so much better than Toronto!

Oh.. you must be on crack you jealous douche...

A large Canadian city with more crime than any other in North America per capita. They say its one of the top 3 places to live... but thats only if your rich. The home of the 2010 Olympics. Most people are lower middle class drug addicts. Cocaine, crystal meth, marijuana, crack, all surprisingly popular with the entire lower mainland population. Think Washington, D.C... but in Canada. Nice govenment and media perception.
Vancouver: "I live in a nice neigborhood, and still robberies, B&E's, and auto theft happen in broad daylight".

Oh... I forgot to mention how pleased people are with our low "gun related" homicide rate. You dont need guns to kill somebody.

A city on the west coast of canada surrounded by mountains and ocean. A multicultural and Liberal city with many surrounding suburbs.
Vancouver is a beatifull city but has a darkside to it. It is full of Aids ridden Junkies, East indian, Asian, Native, and Honduran gangs. And all kinds of annoying artsy fartsy weirdo's from other parts of Canada. And lots of arrogant gas bag white collar territiary workers from fucking Toronto. Bunch of fucking whacko communist motherfuckers and conservative business people. And fucking punks and lowlifes and the suburbs are disgusting here. I like Greenpeace and the ethnic foods. Can not wait to move to the heartland or Island when I am done college.
