Whatever, Vancouver

Ugh. Vancouver. I don’t know how you can sleep at night. If you could find a few ways to make your town a little more attractive, we’d all appreciate it.  Maybe you could find some more understatedly beautiful residents-or at least some better views.

Maybe you could harness your natural resources to produce more lush vegetation.

You could build a zero entry, heated, salt water pool.  Have it look out over the ocean, and why not the mountains as well?  Just think about it.

Maybe get a real park, one that juts out into the ocean and has a seawall built around it- imagine how nice that would be for visitors.  Maybe let people bike around it?

Or maybe you could pull yourself together enough to get some decent food,

some pristine beaches with built-in log seating,

or at least some nice playground equipment.

And, I’m sure it wouldn’t be too much to ask for you to get an aquarium with a porpoise who swims across the tank just to say hello to my son.
