Quality of life to average Joe 6-pack and working stiff like my family or myself starting from nothing, would require us to work a lifetime and possibly still not paying off our mortgage, then comes home renovation, tax and more tax (HST), stress out at work only to barely make ends meet and figuring out how to send my kids to college, I don't think the quality of life is that good. Life is really too short.
I was in Vancouver in 1989-1990 on contract assignment, I wish I had stayed then when housing is affordable, about 50% more than Calgary. Today, Vancouver average house is >2X Calgary. A recent article in Calgary newspaper cited income in Calgary and Toronto is 15-20% more than Vancouver, so now with average house costing C$1M each in Vancouver, that would be real stress for a lot of people. And also, Vancouver in on the earthquake grid, who knows when or if? In 1989 I was told very few high rise buildings are designed to withstand earthquake. Today, 22 years later, how many buildings are designed so, especially when in downtown, the buildings are so close together

But yeah, i concur, his hairdo probably has gotten a bit stylish (i thought yours would come close to looking like his~from the pic)...and if he gets eliminated early, wait til you see him pull out his disco/boxing shoes and attires~should be more fun for him & his younger teammates in Van-town than in O.C./L.A...

if your dad is the emperor. and if the emperor says he gets into 1st team and no one dare to object, then where's the motivation of working hard?

Ergo, nepotism in motion?

The views from those Coal Harbour condos are so nice .
It is indeed perplexing that they, despite the need to curb urban sprawl, have clustered so many highrises together when nearby Vancouver Island has a history of frequent strong earthquakes. It will be a nightmare for rescue personnel if one is to hit the city itself

Lol, Canada is probably one of the few countries where Brice Leverdex's name is pronounced correctly
07-20-2011, 05:56 PM #43
You mean Brice Leverdez?
Not sure what percentage of Canadians could pronounce (or spell) it correctly, especially out West or far East.
And, with due respect, I'll hope for Sapsiree.

Looks like Badminton Life is livestreaming XD Canadians Ng/Chan vs Li/Yu. (Golly, Chan looks like a juvenille giraffe with those long legs.)
Not sure how well any Canadians are going to do in this tourney, but in MS Kai Dan and Stefan Wojcikiewicz have reached the second round.
Looking forward to updates from people who are actually there.
