City of Vancouver wants to know what kind of rain you like

The City of Vancouver has a couple questions to ask you, and how you’ll be voting in the transit plebiscite is not one of them.

To celebrate Vancouver’s 129th birthday, the city is putting out a “Vanniversary” questionnaire, looking to answer several burning questions about your favourite landmarks, where you like to eat, what kind of rain you like and other “Vancouver-ish” things.

As part of Talk Vancouver, the City’s online platform asking citizens what is important to them, the City aims to get people talking and celebrate their own “Vanniversary”.

The kinds of questions you will have to answer play on humourous Vancouver stereotypes and ask about places in Vancouver that get your attention, from landmarks to beaches.

One such question asks if you’ve ever taken a picture of cherry blossoms and posted it to social media. The answer to that one should come as no surprise.

The survey also wonders what are people’s favourite and least favourite types of rain, where are the best beaches, what neighbourhoods have the best food, how many umbrellas you’ve lost, and more.

Results from the survey will be released on April 6 to coincide with Vancouver’s 129th birthday.
