Go to www.rubylakeresort.com and read the experience of the Cogrossi family.

Survive??? Why Sir, you are one of the fortunate ones. Vancouver is a wonderful city. God knows you will be busy, between hiking on theNorth Shore, walking in the parks, skiing on Grouse Mountain and Whistler...I envy you.

YES! YES! YES!
Vancouver is a wonderful, cultural and the best Chinese food. Great skiiing and the scenery is to die for. Hey, it could be worse......



And you are closer to Hawaii for vacations.

Will you survive living in Vancouver for the next 35 years? Hmmm, I don't know. I guess it depends on your health and age.

Felipe, many Canadians would love to move to Vancouver. The west coast of Canada is beautiful, and most people who live out there can't imagine living elsewhere. Climate is relatively moderate, but there's skiing just outside the city and it's right on the ocean, so there's boating, etc. If you like to garden, it's a great place. I don't know that it's as multi-cultural as say Toronto - I think a lot of the immigrants are Asian - and there isn't a lot of history in Vancouver. Canada is, after all, a young country.

My family live in the lower mainland, and I've lived out there as well. I've been in Toronto many years now - would I go back to BC? Maybe!

Give it a chance Felipe.

I grew up in Vancouver, and could never imagine living elsewhere. But, due a changing job market (few job prospects in Vancouver, plus we were getting tired of the high taxes, etc.) we moved to the east coast...to the States no less! Now that we're living here, we really like it and have even talked about retiring on the east coast.

You can enjoy Vancouver for at least a year or two as you explore the area as a tourist, and discover how you will fit in. If after that time it's still not home for you, you can always move. Vancouver is a beautiful looking city...good luck!
