Downtown Victoria lower Yates st, Johnson st, and Pandora ave should be classified as district 9. There is too many prawns in the evening.

It can't be helped. A lot of people have opinionated that BC people seem to be profoundly stupid, standoffish, and assholes. They do it to themselves. Even other people who want to defend BC and the capital city Victoria find it difficult when the locals seem to go out of their way to make themselves look like backward idiots. The Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec people must look at Victoria and BC like we are the nutty crazy cousins at the family reunions?

Have you ever had some really slow driver with no traffic in front block up 25 cars behind by going really slow, with no lanes to bypass? Have you ever been to a public washroom where some useless twit is sitting in a stall and not doing their business, sitting around holding it up for everyone else? That is what Victoria BC is like. It is an analogy of the culture, economics, and politics. Even if one wants to defend the place and its people, it is almost impossible to do so when they insist on being consistently screwed up. Victoria is capital city of BC and that is why all sorts of dumb dumb policies and taxes happen. They want to keep the people poor, not prosperous like in Alberta, Saskatchewan and other Canadian provinces.
