Miss having a culture

There used to be one in Vancouver. Now it is a global colony for the super wealthy and slave labourers who move here looking for the American dream.

Many of you got good money for it.
Since 2000 the housing prices here tripled or quadrupled, depending on whom you ask. At the same time, wages were largely stagnant (declined if adjusted for actual inflation, not the gov stat).
Seems legit.
Many people think this is OK. They've told me so for years. You should talk to some of them, I'm sure you'll feel better. Pretty much established that my skepticism is the problem here.

The culture that you speak of is something to be ashamed of around here.... someone has it out for "closed-minded open-minded people".

Vancouver's never had any culture that's always been is problem. A town stuck in it's rural roots. Today, the new affluent have to interest in culture, just showing off. Affluent provincialism. Only in Vancouver.

open borders globalism is the Green Party. Of course, they come with their own supply of batshittery. There is no hope.

Vancouver is bland unfriendly classist and sterile now. Shame it used to be a pretty interesting city with cool people before the shallow snobs with their prescious real estate took over

The absence

One could argue that Vancouver culture used to be its lack of culture. Which suited the old locals — those who’ve been here the longest just fine. It was a sleepy provincial backwater with not a lot going on. But also, no crowds, no excessive displays of nouveau-affluence, and less homelessness. One could also argue that life was better here back then.

SJW? No I'm just saying the people in Vancouver have gone from provincial bumpkins to affluent provincial bumpkins. Purchased sophistication. Pull the curtain back and there's not much there.
