Just for a moment forget everything you've read, been told, and told yourself about how amazing Vancouver is. Take in the incessant rain, the moldy buildings, the poor people seeking shelter on crowded streets, the fascination with wealth and the appearance of wealth, the ludicrously unattainable property, the crowded backcountry with queues (seriously) on hiking trails, the rodent populations sustained by human filth, the clogged roads, the grotesque vanity all around and the rate of consumption it demands, and ask yourself if this is how we should live. Do you actually like this place?
