Oh sure, this only reinforces the notion that Oak Bay and the rest of Greater Victoria on Vancouver Island is "newly wed and nearly dead". This life is only good for the new families with small children and seniors who are almost dead. In the Shrek movies, Shrek said to Donkey, "Change is Good." Everything gets stale with no change to freshen things up. Victoria is only enjoyable if you happen to be independently rich and free from all kinds of work unless you wish too.

Yes, Oak Bay is very nice as are many other areas in metro Victoria. No wonder people are resistant to change. Why change such a beautiful thing?

The only reason why the accountant thinks Greater Victoria is so nice is because he is wealthy enough to not need money. The rest of the average people are getting double ripped off and anally raped economically with general low wages and higher living expenses. Only the lazy and clueless fall for the Victoria is so nice propaganda. Oh, don't worry if the low wages, lack of prospects, and high living costs make you depressed, poor and homeless. You can commune with the nice weather and environment out in the open with no roof over your head.

An accountant needs money like anyone else. Being an accountant he could make it in any city in Canada. He chooses Victoria because its a great place to be.
Naturally the losers don't like it here. They don't like it wherever they are. They are always blaming somebody else for their failures.

All these overly positive, overly optimistic comments about how wonderful Victoria is, is nothing more than apologist propaganda. Many of us who have to work and live in Victoria constantly are disgruntled about the systemic cheap pay, job lack, and the disproportionately high living expenses to low pay. You will get double squeezed if you don't take heed to all these peoples' warnings about Victoria. Don't cry we didn't warn you. It is all a fantasy.

Another groan from the loser crowd who can't make it out of Mom's basement.
Is there such a thing as a good place for losers like this? I don't know of any. They haven't got the balls to move to Edmonton, but if they did they would learn something.

You are everywhere as Brexx. Are you trying to turn yourself into a brand? Brexx sounds like a mining company or a brand of bug spray.

I give myself an identity so people can follow my arguments and understand my position. Unlike you cowards who won't even register a handle because you don't want to have to defend the drivel you spew from post to post.

Yes, Brexx does sound like a product name for insect killing chemicals. Why register one's ID user name on any internet site? You are just falling into the trap that all the various NWO conspiracy people are setting up, to register, control, and track every human alive on Earth, in any place. It is like they are ensnaring everyone with "sweet sugary treats" and nobody is wiser until it's too late to change.

Just curious, do you wear your tinfoil hat to bed as well?
