The Urban Dictionary definition of Vancouver

DH Vancouver Staff Nov 22, 2012 8:44 am

Urban dictionary defines Vancouver as:

That city where if you own a house already, you can sell it and buy two of the same in Toronto, or three in Calgary, or an entire street in Winnipeg.

My mouldy 1200 square foot bungalow in Vancouver costs one million dollars because its got a yard. A yard with trees? That’ll be a million-two.

A funny testament to our city’s high cost of housing, which, these days often overshadows the abundance of natural and man made beauty in this town.

To me this video defines Vancouver very well:
