How to Piss Off a Vancouverite

Yes, it's an expensive city. But that's like complaining too many people hit on your spouse because they're so hot. It's a gorgeous city in a beautiful setting with top-notch bars and restaurants, a thriving arts scene, and more. Guess what's driving the cost? People moving here, at any cost, because it's so awesome. It's a vicious cycle. Would you prefer it be less awesome? We wouldn't.
