Reader tedeastside either hates Vancouver or he wants other people to.
Regular visitors here know teds comments have a certain reliable tone to them, but yesterday’s got creative and inspired people to riff on it:
to those proud vancouverites who mention vancouver in the same breath as New York or London probably thinks the following
Shangri-la = Empire State building
Robson Square = Rockefeller center
Nat Bailey = Yankee Stadium
Steam Clock = Big Ben
Olympic Cauldron = Eiffel Tower
VAG = the Louvre
Robson street = Champs-Élysées
Gassy Jack = Statue of Liberty
North Van Sulfer piles = the Pyramids
This of course got some pointing out that Vancouver can have overpriced real estate and still be a decent city, but where’s the fun in that?
