I'll temper my comment, as I don't live in Vancouver anymore (although I'm in constant contact with LOTS of friends and family there). However, I suspect that the last comment, like most of what that particular contributor posts, is a complete load of ****.

Vancouver has a lot of problems, but I think he's out to lunch.

Yah it must be great to pay $3000 a month for a 500 square foot apartment in Yaletown. Watching bum fights from your window every night must be the cherry on top

Yeah, I'm a Vancouverite but everything I know about the city I learnt listening to morning radio in the 'burbs.

Dude I lived dt for 4 years, kits for 4 years  spent my young adult life on Commercial drive. Play soccer in East Van and live in New West. Give it a rest with stereotypes.

Hey, sounds like there's something moving around under the front porch, what could it be?

Must be a stereotype:

"Yah it must be great to pay $3000 a month for a 500 square foot apartment in Yaletown. Watching bum fights from your window every night must be the cherry on top"

Save your energy. You're as likely to get a reasonable conversation from Robert.

I don't block Robert, I do others, like this guy. Especially after he boasted his entire family had gone through Covid already in the winter and they were the new illuminati, the chosen special ones meant to lead the way in the post-apocalypse. If I were a public health nurse I would have given him Naloxone to give the rest of us a break.

Things change my friend dt Vancouver is soulless now. Dt Van use to be surrounded by suburbs so people could get in and out really easy. Now basically Vancouver to New West is urbanized and the suburbs are all pushed to the other side of the Fraser. DT Van is basically in Siberia and the area around is occupied by broke life long singles,  transient students and people here for work who will come and go. The geographically center of the Lower Mainland is actually Central City Surrey. A lot of businesses are leaving dt because they can't attract skilled workers with families. I know this first hand. Its not 2010 Vancouver anymore. If it weren't for the Whitecaps I would honestly never set foot West of Boundary rd and I lived in and around dt for 10 years

Wow, sounds like Vancouver went to shit after Krammerhead left/died!

East Van....is it like how Gabor Mate describes, Portland Motel, dug addicts, central Americans pushing cocaine and heroin?

I remember when MLS was building stadiums in the suburbs.  Because families will come!  Then TFC, Seattle, Portland, Vancouver came along and it was "whoops.  turns out that downtown is where fans are."  And the teams that built in the suburbs to attract families are among the worst for attendance.  Maybe they can build the stadium next to the white elephant arena in Abbotsford that hemmoraged money before losing the hockey team.

I think the sububrb vs downtown argument isn't so cut and dry. Every community's situation is different and needs to be analyzed accordingly. The executives that made the decision for FC Dallas and Fresno looked at the demographic trends for that area and saw huge year over year increase of young families into the city. They think the long-term plan for that area will bear fruit. It's not unlike what SpursFlu is getting at.

Canadian Premier League expansion - Bundesliga involved in Fraser Valley project?

there is also talk about expansion in British Columbia. One location that has been targeted by the league is Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley Regional District.

Putting a second team in BC, in general, and a team in close proximity to Vancouver, in particular, is a major priority for when the league expands next. That team could see major financing from the German Bundesliga.

Pacific FC may get B.C. rival in Canadian Premier League soccer

“It would be fantastic … the Lower Mainland is a clear goal for the league,” said Pacific FC president and co-owner Josh Simpson.

Simpson was responding to a story in Transfermarkt, the authoritative soccer website, which reported on the weekend that placing a team on the Lower Mainland, possibly the Fraser Valley, is a “major priority.”

 
 

“That team could see major financing from the German Bundesliga,” wrote Oak Bay-based Transfermarkt reporter Manuel Veth.

A Lower Mainland CPL team would give PFC some annual away games that are just a ferry ride away. It would also allow for a handy B.C. back-to-back Mainland-Island road-double for other visiting teams. PFC was one of seven charter members of the CPL — Canada’s pro soccer league mandated in order to co-host the 2026 FIFA World Cup with the U.S. and Mexico — during the inaugural 2019 season. PFC placed third in the recently-completed 2020 pandemic-abbreviated season played without fans amid a bubble hub in Charlottetown, P.E.I. The 2021 CPL season is of more immediate concern for PFC than potential future provincial rivals.
