Rick Mercer Report on Vancouver

This is a report on Vancouver’s ‘most liveable city’ status as awarded by the UK’s Economist Intelligence Unit in 2002. That year we tied with Melbourne as the best place for a British Expat to live. Although its several years old, this clip is as funny as ever and certainly hasn’t lost its relevance:

Thanks for the clip! I disagree with anonymous, nothing in there looked like a 'pretty good deal'. I think Rick Mercer is a funny guy, but his best material is his walking rants – This hour has 22 minutes was some of his best stuff.

If I am correct, the 4.888 million dollar house is on Granville (~60th). A year ago, it worth 8 millions!! So 4.888 is a surprisingly good deal.. in 2007.. oops..

ok, that is ridiculous. 400 sf? Do they make them that small? She must have been mistaken. But that house at 479 seemed tempting! Character fixer-upper! Buy and hold! Development possibilities!
