    Amazing city...
    Anybody else missing the cool town you had to leave behind for whatever reason?

    Surrey's my place of origin. Vancouver's overrated in comparison, IMO.

    I just moved to Vancouver from Alberta and all I can say is that Vancouver sucks. Everything is brutally expensive, the housing situation is tragic and the amount of retarded hipsters is insane. There are too many homeless scumbags because the liberal politics encourage it and every square inch of the city is under major construction.

    What really pisses me off is the morons who buy loud fancy cars and drive around the city showing them off by driving like an asshole. There are so many assholes in Vancouver its sickening.

    I'll stick to Toronto and Montreal. At least the hipsters are manageable there.

    Lol I've been to both cities. You might be right. I was only there visiting relatives. Vancouver is indeed expensive but it's fun to be a tourist though, I was high most of the week I was there. Alberta is a boring place to visit, but to live I can see the perks of a impressively stable city/province.

    Then again this was back in '05.

    I never really appreciated Vancouver until I travelled the world. Now I know how lucky I am to live here.

    Damn, me too... Though I haven't been there in a while, unfortunately. Awesome city, great nightlife, beautiful women, liberal culture and nice, awesome people.

    It's almost as great as Seattle! :)

    Don't worry I'll be leaving this hipster ridden dump as soon as I can.

    Please stay out of Alberta. Alberta has enough dirty, pretentious hipsters from BC, who couldn't find a job in Vancouver, constantly bitching about how things are so much better in Vancouver while taking advantage of a superior economy. People from BC suck at driving.

    How many Stanley cups have the Canucks won? Zero. I can guarantee you the team never will win one.

    Same, except the people kinda suck here... let's be honest. I felt more welcome when traveling than i do in my own town, people (men and women) have their noses up here for sure (not just Vancouver but the lower mainland) and think they're special for some reason. I guess the imports are usually upper class from wherever they're from and tend to have a better-than-you attitude and it's unfortunately an infectious one at that.

    The city itself is something special though and I love it here. I did some traveling with the belief I'd settle down somewhere else but by going away I realize how good it is here and I came back.

    Lol, you're complaining about how expensive Vancouver is, not me. I have no problem affording to live here.

    And guess what, I'm a Habs fan. If you want to talk about how many Cups my team has won, go ahead. Calgary just hired Brian Burke ffs, you're at year -2 of a 7 year re-build that will fail anyways.

    2004, cough... Iginla, see ya! the Canucks may not have a cup but in 20 years the Canucks will have more Cup banners than Calgary and the Flames will still be the NHL's version of a urinal if they even stay in Calgary with a team so lousy the Leafs have guaranteed 2pts every time they play them this year.

    Vancouvers a beautiful city, but I gotta say: some of the smuggest, douchiest people on the planet. I like to visit but I wouldn't want to live there
