I recently read an article that the average house costs over a million while the average hously income is around $70,000.. I have lived in a few cities. I have built successful friendly relationships in all of them. The interesting thing about Vancouver is every friend I connected with here, except for a few, are also from another country or city (Peru, Australia, Sweden); and the few are from the more down to earth outskirts of port moody/ Coquitlam. Not to say there are zero decent people in your city, just more not than are .
Attending university and being around Vancouver youth regularly led me to 3 descriptive words for them: Over-privileged, uninviting, and un-realistic. Despite my efforts I could not seem to get along. I am moving and will only be in this province for 2 more days. Considering SFU pumps out over 600 business degrees a year and a business degree starts at a measly 30,000-40,000 a year; and assuming you beat all the competition and can even find a job. Enjoy that $1 million per house-housing market, let me know how privileged you are when you can't afford a mortgage. And let me know how the stuck up, unwelcoming persona works for you when you are forced to move to a more affordable city with more work opportunities. Or just keep living at your parents house, I dont care. Young Vancouverites you are going to have a rude awakening if you want to continue living in this city. I suggest you start thinking about it and doing something
