Why Vancouver sucks

Oct 25, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Bay Guardian

“This is a very multicultural city”

I'm sick of hearing San Francisco planners, the folks at SPUR and SF Weekly columnists talk about how wonderful Vancouver is, what with all of the slender downtown condo towers that provide walkable ... via Bay Guardian

I live here. It sucks. I've lived here for 7 years almost and I have never met so many rude detached assholes in my life. I'm from the Maritimes. I want to go back to the Maritimes.

It really is one of the only safe havens for white culture left in the WORLD. It's a friendly and wonderful place with actual white cultures still flourishing. Scottish, Irish, German, English, etc etc... Each town has it's own Identity but they are all friendly and they all get along perfectly. There is no gang violence because there are NO GANGS. Because there are no ethnic people there to CREATE GANGS. It is slower paced in most towns but the quality of life is beyond anything you can find here. Here it is lonely if you are white. Because most ethnic people will not interact with you if you are WHITE. They have a lot of negative assumptions about us and it won't allow them to relax enough to be friends with us. They just judge us. It's clear and easy to see that.

New Glasgow, where I am from.. Is predominantly Scottish and Irish heritage. There are signs in both english and gaelic. It's quite something to see my OWN culture actually displayed somewhere in this country. The fact that it is not more common is very sad. Maybe if you guys are sick of ethnic people who do not have the same type of emotional intelligence as you do- you should try a nice relaxing easy life in a Province like Nova Scotia. Halifax is an amazing city and the population continues to grow but it is not crowded to the point of frustration. It is beautiful there and the people are wonderful. You will make so many friends at your first job that you will wonder what these people want from you at first ...until you realize they are just fun loving and accepting people of people.

Or you can stay here or move somewhere else?... Stay here and continue to suffer in this sea of shit heads who don't even understand how to talk to a stranger in a relaxed or humorous manner. That's what I am having to do... Because I've met my fiance here... It blows that I'm stuck but I love her... However... I plan on leaving as SOON as we can. I truly hate it here.
Figures , u inbred Noofies are the last to comment about culture . You must long for your Bay-Men . Why did u leave in the first place ? Did he break ur heart ? HA HA HA !

New Glasgow is in Nova Scotia not Newfoundland you idiot! As for culture at least the Maritimes and Atlantis Canada still have there Anglo/Irish/Scottish culture. It is still very much alive in there accents, folk music, folk dance, folk customs and folklore. Hell universities in Ireland and Scotland send people to Newfoundland and Cape Breton for studies because the culture is so strong there. What does Vancouver have, a multicultural nightmare where it is a sin to be a white male.

Well heres the thing , Vancouver Is not a Westernenized City anymore maybe it once was but NO not anymore , because the art of approaching strangers and showing interest and chivalry and A Casual cafe encounter leading to a fun romance , easy inter-community dialogue were all derived from the English Culture . Take a good look at Vancouver now , what you see on the streets Is exactly the total Opposite , Over-populated for a small city , the Chinese and Indian cultures and the arabic cultures are atleast a good half or more chunk of the population , they refuse to adapt to the English culture , all stay in within their culture groups and all have zero sense of Communitarian development and all have CLass systems and ALL Are against Welcoming and being open minded , arrogance and close mindedness and greed is all i see in Vancouver ...I am telling u guys the name should be changed to India ..I swear .if this is off topic , then readers you must be on Drugs . Open your eyes, MULTICULTURISM AND LIBERATION FOR INDIANS AND CHINESE AND MUSLIMS RUINED EVERYTHING , Now they r so powerful and unbeatable all because of FAGGOT LIBERALS WHO WELCOMED THEM AND TAUGHT THEM HOW TO LEECH OF OUT GENEROUS BENEFITS SYSTEM AND PUT THEM AS FIRST PRIORITY THEN US FELLOW CANADIANS , FUCK U CHRISTY CLARK AND ANYONE WHO SUPPORTED THESER GUYS

The people in the NDP of the 90s are mostly gone from the party. The year is now,2013. The liberals had 12 years to fix the problem and didn't. Hospital beds in a Tim Hortons!!!!! Really!!!!! Bc is second in child poverty ( is the NDP to blame for that?. The HST!!!!!! Carbon tax. Bc rail...Overcrowded classrooms. Scandal after scandal. The NDP messed up with the fast ferries in the 90s, but at least they built them in BC not like the liberals who built them in Europe. I laugh when I hear clark talk about creating jobs when time after time they outsource jobs while the people of BC are unemployed. This province is laughable because of the Libs and the people are gullible for believing them.

I lived in BC for over 30 years, the NDP took the province down years ago and ruins it to this day. When a party has to remove " socialism" from it's platform that's not an indication of wealth creation.

Protip: Socialism doesn't work. The NDP is a disaster, and you're likely some young leftist know nothing.Which is another reason I left BC, too much leftwing political ignorance. It's a terrible place to live.

The right is better yes compared to the left. Liberalism is a proven mental disorder and ruins everything it touches.The NDP ruins the province years ago and nobody trusts them. Look at conservative Alberta, Texas, the Dakotas etc compared to leftists dumps.

When I was young I was a leftist idiot.

When you become an adult, you may change your mind, and the liberals are hardly really conservative. No true conservative party calls them themselves liberals, in BC you have the left and far left, no moderates etc.

I dont think the liberals are prefect but the NDP ruined the province 20 years ago, it's not opinion but fact.Right wing propaganda my ass, more like right wing telling the facts

I want you to tell me how a party with socialism in it's name is good for anything,?you cant because you're an idiot that lives in BC ultra left wing bubble

chiinks. Go0ooks. One can stay in vanchinky for a week long visit on a sunny time of the year and think it is fine place to be. It's when you actually have to live here 365 days a year and put up with 245 days of rain, rude stupid ,bland,chinkies, the crime, the shitty drivers (see chinky ), the over taxation of every goods and service and the crappy customer service in stores. The females are angry uptight little self centered twats who ignore any decent male with a smile, and in general, the citizens are just rude unhappy uncultured dickheads.

But the diversity IS good! Remember Canada is not supposed to be a homogeneous country and the actual native people of Canada, just like the US, are a small proportion of the country. The European settlers took away their country from then. Now it's good to have a diverse bunch of people.

It is nice to see a lot of Africans, Indians, East Asians, Latinos, and Europeans in one country.

I think Canada needs more Middle Eastern, Jewish, Chinese, Indian, Korean, Latin American, and African people! Same with the US! Moremoremoremoremore.

Your the idiot that believes that because a party has a name like liberal, NDP or conservative they govern in a different style. Bc politics is a joke and if you presently lived here you would know that there is no left or right but bad and worse. Or I should say crooked or crookeder. And if right wing tells the facts then tell me what exactly happened with the selling of BC Rail because your glorious right wing government still hasn't disclosed anything about it !!!!!

You're an idiot, I lived in BC for 30 years It's filled with progressive know nothing wackos. They are not all the same moron, you're again too stupid to know any better. You also sound like a conspiracy nut job that repeats slogans like:

" They're all the same!!!" so you can sound smart to your uneducated pea brained friends, whom also parrot the same dumb line. Morons all of you.

You disgust me
