Life is really too short.

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...

    Yes, the property prices in Vancouver has risen more than tenfold since the eighties.
    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

    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.

    Oops, pressed the wrong letter in a hurry.
    Isn't French also taken as a language for all Canadians?
    Ha ha, to each his own. C'est tout

    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.
