Vancouver reacts to Amazon not choosing it for new headquarters short list

Jan 18 2018, 6:20 pm

While Amazon confirmed it will open a second Vancouver office, the company will not be bringing their second global headquarters here.

That information came to light this morning, as the company revealed which cities – out of more than 100 that submitted applications – had been shortlisted as a possible location for it, and Vancouver was not among them.

In fact, the only Canadian city to be shortlisted was Toronto.

However, news of the failed bid didn’t stop Vancouverites from taking to social media to share their thoughts on the failed bid.

Here’s what they had to say.
