one in five? that is very very inaccurate and mis-informed.

in many places it is like 90%, in some malls it is from 80% to 100%.

generally it must be over 50%.

and there are not just immigrants, there are tens of thousands of Students who are not immigrants but will be given immigration status after they graduate.

and there are tens of thousands of Asians on work permits who will get permanent residency after 2 years.

and, there are tens of thousands of Chinese resident 'visitors' who live here, own houses and cars who are on 'visitor' visas generously given away by the Federal government of Canada.

and, there are unknown numbers of illegals, refugee applicants..

therefore census data of Asian population in Vancouver does not reflect the real numbers of Asian residents in Vancouver area, because it doesn't include the above listed students, work permits, fake 'visitors' real residents, and illegals, refugee applicants.

therefore the total numbers of Asians in Vancouver area? it could be something like 1.5 Million or even 2 Million.

census data shows 407K Chinese? well, how many K's of students, work permits,'visitor' residents, refugee applicants and illegals? you don't know. but these are also in great numbers, therefore the total numbers of Chinese in Vancouver area could be from 600K to 800K or even 1 Million.

and, how about East Indians? Filipinos? Koreans? Hong Kongers? Taiwanese?

regardless of their immigration status, the total number of Asian residents in Vancouver area should be at least 1.5 Million, possibly even 2 Millions.

and it is not just whose immigrant Asians or Chinese are buying up real estates in Vancouver, great numbers of real estates are bought by foreign students, especially Chinese students on student visa. and, visitors, who are not listed by any census data.

because foreign students can expect generous hand-outs of permanent residency, their rich parents in China will give them money to buy houses, condos in Vancouver. and Canada welcomes foreigners to buy up their land and real estate.

visitors hold 10 years visa with half year stay for each entry do buy houses and cars in Vancouver too. after 6 months they go for a visa-run and then return to Canada to live another 6 months.

Canada starts giving Chinese 10-year long term visitor visas this year (2012), hundreds of thousands of such 'visitors' start flocking to Vancouver suddenly. and suddenly the air-tickets between China and Canada become much more expensive than last years, because of the extra demand. and, gas prices in Vancouver area? shot to above $1.5/litre.

and don't forget Birth Tourism, anchor babies. Chinese and other Asians are coming to give Canadian-citizen births with visitor or fake student visas.(fake means real student visas issued by Canadian consulate, but real purpose is not for study but for giving birth etc.)

I agree to an extent, that this an exaggeration.

A lot are illegal immigrants, who just want to get out of China. For whatever reason.

Besides, asians, specially the Chinese never act like a bloc. Regardless of their demographic size.

This lack of cohesion as a community will always be a letdown.

I love Asians. Especially the women. The more the better.

Most of them are easier to get in bed with than other races of women because they know white men are superior to their own kind.

So your love for asians is motivated by nothing more than selfish service to yourself.

Thats hardly called called love.

Besides, if whiteys were really as superior as they claim themselves to be, shouldnt you be able to get any woman from any race into bed?

Not just asian women.

It would seem that black men are superior to white men. Thats why black men are getting all the white wimmen. LOL!!

Of course, it's natural for guys to like the women better, whether it's Asian women for White guys or White women for Asian guys.

Asian women actually like Asian guys more than White guys. However, both groups are great people and deserved to be liked.

these Chinese women are not just physically ill (STD), but also mentally ill.

their value system is perverted.

is Racism okay in America? if not okay, such openly racist Chinese/Asian women should be barred from entry. because they have apparent and proven Racist purpose for coming to North America.

because they play so different than women of other races, this is breaking the game rules in the society. it is damaging the established values and norms in society.

even in the sport game, would you allow players to cheat?

how about online pc games, okay for players to cheat and hack?

Asian women in North America are like those cheaters in games.

more proofs that Chinese are mentally ill:

their value systems are perverted.

their minds are controlled by L.V., BMW, VW..(which cost fortunes to buy but actually worth not much, European cars are unsafe, unreliable yet expensive cars.)

Chinese girls in Australia are crazy lining up to by L.V. bags. Chinese rich guy in Singapore died in a crash, in his 10 Million dollar Ferrari (which proved Ferrari is very unsafe over-hyped and over-prices, only mentally ill stupid Chinese will buy.)

their women go after white European men.

even their 'Communism' was invented by a European.

why are Chinese so much self-brainwashed by everything European? strange..

maybe because of the Opium war? Chinese genes have been transformed to blindly worship everything from Europe? Stupid and Mentally ill Chinese.

and, they are also pushing up real estate prices like crazy.

they'll pay millions to buy some shanty houses which were worth only a few thousand dollars before.(one example in Vancouver, i saw a little house currently listed $2.3 Million dollars. which may sell for 2 thousand dollars some 20 or 30 years ago.)

Why do we continue to permit seasonal residents into the country when so many canadians and landeds are unemployed? They get paid and are eligible for all sorts of benefits, and many of them stay on illegally and somehow get welfare freebies, and eventually landed status. And we continue to increase our trade with communists, human rights violators and any other criminal element wanting to spend money in Canada. And why does the government permit communist china to buy our Canadian banks? What's wrong with this country?

Booming economy? Vancouver does not have a booming economy and it's entirely unaffordable, has lower salary rates than most other cities of its size and lacks the dynamism required to be competitive. Vancouver has only become a retirement Mecca for racist, xenophobic. Anti-Canadian rich Chinese. The European folks of this town need to stand up and be proud of their history. We've handed it over in less than 15 years, imagine what will happen in another 15 when all the non-Chinese students/parents/people are pushed out? You will have a colony, that's what you'll have....no different from that seen in the early days of expansion, except this time around the hosts allowed it.

Too much Chinese money invested and the Canadian government is afraid of losing ethnic votes and worried about 'the economy' even when the ethnic Chinese are taking Over huge swaths of Canadian real estate and industry. Get out I say!

It's ironic that you didn't even acknowledge the aborigines.
