Can’t wait to Leave Vancouver

I have grown up in the GVD and the people in this city are so fake. The influx of rich investors has made property unaffordable and all the best music venues are dropping like flies. So excited to ya escape what Vancouver has turned into ever since the 2010 olympics... I’ll only miss the mountains and 3 good friends.

Vancouver is a Potemkin village, (see coal harbour) and it's people are Potemkin people. They should be called Potemkinites. It always has and will always be.

I’ve lived in Vancouver for eleven years now and I’m so goddamn sick of this place. It’s a shell of its former self. I beg my wife everyday for us to move and she’s now finally listening to reason. I can’t wait to say goodbye to this place. Good riddance.

Such a place of beauty has gotten so cold.
BC used to be Canada's. (California).
Warmest place in Canada , the nicest, warmest, most helpful people around.
What happened to make it so cold here now ?
The weather or is it sadness ?
Most beautiful place evermore.

vancouverites are so surly and short tempered its almost comical. feel bad for anyone stuck in such an unfriendly boring shallow backwater.....not much in vancouver besides hockey, cold rain and snobs.

Vancouver sucks. It really really really sucks. I've lived in multiple big cities and Vancouver is the worst! I can't leave yet because I fell in love with a guy while I was saving up to leave and ended up staying. Trying to convince said guy to leave with me as soon as we can.

Time to go!

I’m going to a nice warm place for two weeks coming up and I will probably find a way to stay there permanently. This city is a very far cry from the badass rundown Mecca of art, jazz and punk rock of its glory days in the 80’s and 90’s. Even the early 2000’s were pretty alright. The 2010 Olympics really did put the nail in the coffin.

There are NO fake people anywhere else. Just in Vancouver.

I recommend any one and every business get as far from Vancouver as possible. It doesn't feel or look like North America any longer. The hobos are like World War Z. Not worth the money.

I left at the start of 2012. A great decision. And yes, I check back here. Because Vancouver IS naturally beautiful...just itself disappointing. DEEPLY disappointing.
