It’s not your fault.
It’s just that being from Vancouver carries some (not so) serious stereotypes with it. Especially when you find yourself in Toronto.
There’s just no way, for instance, that telling us you’re from Vancouver won’t immediately make us save your phone number as ‘new weed guy’. It’s just the way it is in the 6ix. We love you, but we (mis)judge you too.
So whether you’re in town visiting or you’ve made the permanent move, here are 16 things everyone in Toronto will automatically think when you tell them you’re from Vancouver.
You smoke weed
Speaking of which, do you have any on you? We also assume it’s good weed.
You do yoga
You probably sleep in happy baby pose, practice downward dog at the office, and insist on signing your emails with namaste.

You own 700 pairs of lululemon pants
In fact, we assume you’re wearing them right now underneath your jeans.
Sometimes we think you’re confused, so let us help: you’re not actually from Seattle, you’re from near Seattle.

You spend your weekends hiking
And no, we don’t care how many times you’ve done the Grouse Grind in a day.

Breakfast = granola
And you made it yourself and you keep it in a mason jar, obviously.
Good morning to all my sweet people out there ☺️❤️ there has been a lot going on in my life lately and I want to apologize to all my friends that I didn’t pay much attention to the past few days. I see your incredible work and love all of it, please don’t ever think I’m not interested or find your creations not pretty enough to comment. Love all of you dearly💚 Today’s breakfast was a leftover fruit salad with granola and almond yoghurt ☺Happy Sunday to all of you and tons of love your way xxx Sassi #huffposttaste#morningslikethese#breakfastlover

You LOVE sushi
And we in Toronto have no idea what good sushi is.
You HATE the Maple Leafs
For some reason it’s just not enough for you that they suck, they still deserve your hatred.

You own seven umbrellas, four rain jackets, and a wetsuit (for those extra rainy days)
We also assume you’ve found a way to get Vitamin D from water. (Otherwise, how have you survived this long?)
You don’t know what winter truly is
Sure, you have enough annual rain to intimidate Noah, but you have no idea how cold a real Canadian winter can be.

You think we think we’re the centre of the universe
‘Cause we do think that. But you’re still d*cks for not giving us the benefit of the doubt.
Toronto skyline from the Islands on a cloudy evening. I stood there awestruck as the grey clouds rendered the water silver hues while the fading sun light up the buildibgs golden giving the silver and golden contrasts to the evening dark. . . . . . . . . . . . #torontoskyline #toronto #skyline #evening #dusk #clouds #instatoronto #torontoinsta #landscape #sky #sea @hypetoronto @toronto_insta @thetorontostar
You’re going to want to talk about how expensive it is to live in Vancouver
We get it, it’s really pricey. Luckily, Toronto is…wait a minute – no one can afford to live here either.
Did some sight seeing before I’m off to Greece, today was Casa Loma!! 🏰☀️🍃🌿 #casaloma #summervacation #summer #summertime #castle #blue #bluesky #blueskies #clouds #scenery #peaceful #adventure #adventures #sightseeing #earthofficial #fantastic_earth #earthfocus #awesomeearth

You say ‘hey’ instead of ‘eh’
It’s like everyone west of Ontario missed the ‘How to be stereotypically Canadian’ memo.
You have no idea how to party
Just think of all the times you didn’t go clubbing in Vancouver and it’ll make perfect sense.
You hate Drake
Despite Drizzy’s ability to win over the rest of the world, you can’t stand how much he preaches about the 6ix. One dance? Hell, you’d rather stick a Hennessy up your a** than spend another minute listening to Aubrey.
You only drink craft beer
This is totally fine with us. We still think it though. In fact, we’ll buy you one if you tell us you’re from Vancouver. After all, we like to get to know our weed dealers…
