That city where if you own a house already, you can sell it and buy two of the same in Toronto, or three in Calgary, or an entire street in Winnipeg.
My mouldy 1200 square foot bungalow in Vancouver costs one million dollars because it's got a yard. A yard with trees? That'll be a million-two.

Person A: Man, that nutcase Martin Bryant guy shot 35 people in Tasmania!

Vancouver has the highest density, highest property values and best heath standards of Any city its size in the world.

1. A city in Canada everyone's heard of.
2. A city in Washington no one's heard of. When people hear Vancouver they think Canada and when they hear Washington they think Washington DC. So we're not so popular. But hey, we're next to Portland, which is something. And we have lots of meth.
No one cares about Vancouver, WA.

Beamerville. The highest concentration of luxury cars and souped up civics you'll find outside of LA. Offers the best seafood in the world at good prices. Downtown consists of 99% condo towers and marinas. Very nice and all, but make sure you avoid the DTES next door (Downtown Eastside)! Real estate on the west half of the city will cost both your arms and legs as well as those of your children and grand children. Ownership of a home starts at one million dollars. Have fun paying off the mortgage.

"Sonofabitch...I make 200k and I can't pay off my mortgage! Vancouver sucks!!!"
