Hey Vancouver! Why so miserable?

You’d think that living in a great city would make you happy, but apparently that’s not true for everyone.  Southseacompany points out this article about why people in Vancouver and Toronto are so unhappy.

Vancouver is now a place you try to survive as much as enjoy. All the problems are well known, the greatest being the high cost of housing. When you, as a young person, have little hope of making a comfortable life in a city that you love, of course it’s going to cause unhappiness. There is a sense that Vancouver is being yanked away from those who love it most, taken over by mercantilists and arrivistes from around the world who care little about a city’s “soul” so long as the skiing’s good and there’s a place that sells beluga caviar. And then there are those sitting on a lottery ticket with the house they bought years ago, waiting to cash out, and those sitting on a mountain of debt, praying interest rates don’t go up. It doesn’t sound like the kind of environment that would engender a cool community vibe, a place where relationships between people can flourish. And that, I think, is what the survey on happiness has tapped into.

Where are you people? BPOM? Combat Roach? Laibach? Oracle? Make Vancouver Great Again? Make Trudeau Drama Teacher again? etc?

Locusts congregate outside of our courts trying to subvert our legal and justice system and none of you bother to show up?!

“Moving forward you will NOT see the “Syrian Refugee” label used when referring to this murderer because the left-wing media will want to downplay the fact that these people are dangerous.”

Well so much for that prediction.

Interesting that my posts have such an overwhelming affect on you.

I for one am glad that this issue has not been dropped from the spotlight. We need to highlight the problem of bringing in Muslim Syrian refugees without proper vetting. It is a known fact that the young single male Syrian refugees are a potential security problem due to their easy radicalization.

We have no power. The People’s Party is a beachhead. Support a common cause.

Apparently, they got quickly organized as per command under leadership. The same way when protesting social housing, taxes, teacher’s strike or reave free salt.

How exactly are they subverting our legal system? Trudeau’s ill-advised economic migrant aka “refugee” program is shameful, and deserving of criticism. If I bothered to show up I’d be hurling insults about the refugee program as well and I’m a white guy.

HaHa. Not to say I blame them but where is the screening process to filter out Chinese immigrants who have made off with Millions of the PRC money. I don’t see them worrying about a screening process in those cases.

Idiots or playing games with the people who voted them in.

Vote YES in referendum. Then we will get a new party started in BC that gets at least 5% of the vote.

Whatever happened to our Housing Minister, you know, Mrs Robinson.
Gone AWL? Deceased?
Anyway, she claimed to have a PLAN once.
