[quote=fusion2;37765417] I personally wouldn't pick it over other major urban cluster in Canamerica if I had the choice (so I wouldn't categorize myself as a 'Vanfan'), but i'd certainly take it over S.D and many other U.S cities.

I bet, most people, given a choice, would get SD over Van...

You like anything U.S so why would I expect you to say any different.
I do not like anything with snow on the ground in the winter and/or long stretches of gray skies no matter the country.

You'd prolly prefer Omaha to Montreal, Toronto or Van just because its in the U.S

Definitely not Omaha over Montreal!!!


Merry Christmas!!

Oh yeah - Omaha has definately got it going on over Vancouver and Toronto

Was the Merry Christmas genuine or sarcastic? Don't know how to take you to be honest... Underhanded seems to come to my mind...

I like density but Vancouver is hardly a dense city. The fact the entire city has 600,000 people shows it is anything but dense. Paris has 2.3 million on an area of the same size. That's a perfectly dense city (20,000). Inner Shanghai has a density of 30,000 on a land of the same size too, and that is too dense.

Vancouver has a density of 5200.

I don't think anyone would claim that Canamerican cities are models of urban density when compared to most other continents....In our neck of the woods though, Van is not exactly a sparsely populated city, particularly its core.

Vancouver is the 4th densest city in North America after New York, San Francisco & Mexico City. Sorry but that's a fact. I believe you're confusing density with overall population size.

When people usually refer to "the city" of Vancouver they're talking about the Downtown urban core which has a density of 11,577. (making it the most walkable city in Canada, and more walkable than most US cities)

Metro Vancouver has a population of 2.3 million and is divided into multiple municipalities. This allows individual communities to self govern themselves and be more productive when addressing key issues in specific areas.

I think your problem with Vancouver is that it's small (which is totally fine, to each his own) but there's no denying it's a walkers paradise for people that appreciate that sort of lifestyle.
