Vancouver is similar to the PNW of the US
Vancouver's weather is similar, the countryside outside can be similar, but the cities themselves have totally different vibes and totally different layouts.

Also Vancouver feels much more cosmopolitan than Seattle.

Some people in California do sound like Vancouverites, but I still hear a lot of a twang when I'm there. I just got back actually.

Even the people who sound similar to Vancouverites still pronounced certain words differently by putting the emphasis in different places and of course the elongated vowels some Americans use.

Two that stand out are " detail " and "permit " ( as in needing a permit from city hall ).

Honestly i'm gonna be 19 in December, the last thing I care about is going round and rilling people up. People just don't like me because of my controversial views that I have.

So don't go round saying busted. How childish.
