If your location is correct you live in a very snobby area of Vancouver :haha:

The interior still leaves me with all the expenses of BC

Guess you aren't aware that you pay less for fuel and insurance in the interior then? :haha:

I live in North Van and the wife and I keep thinking about getting over to the island. Least our place has gone up in value so could make it work.

What kind of vehicle do you insure?


I do consider to move out of lower Mainland... and not possible... other suitable (city) place is in Washington or little south... But who love Obama and or Trump? ;\

Port Moody is snobby? Obviously you never been to West Vancouver. I'm in North Vancouver living with my parents right now and I'm going to look for work out in Ottawa or Calgary when my current contract is done. Working on a Tableau project using housing data and damn it's insane. The issue is that I can't move to some backwood area since I'm a minority, people may think I'm driving up their house prices.

Folks at Port Moody are pretty well off but I wouldn't say they are snobby. West Vancouver and west side of Vancouver is where it's at! I just wish that Skytrain goes to where I work, by the automall, but that's a long shot.

I never liked that Word Minority .


if I could I would move as far out of the city as possible . I currently live in Aldergrove which reminds me allot of the way Whalley used to be way back in the early 70s but it still has problems but know where near else where, but prices are still up there especially Meat prices are still just stupid this area does usually have the cheaper prices in Fuel last I checked it was 1.19 per litre but still that is expensive for me to drive my ranger 4x4 becasue it is a pig on fuel. I remember years ago saying that I will stop driving ( not believing it would every happen) when fuels cost reached 4.00 per gallon. in langely it is around 1.40 per llitre that is just stupid. and living where I live ther are only 2 bus's the 503 which heads west and the other bus which goes to Abbotsford . it would take me at least 1 hr on a bus just to get to Surrey ( WHalley world) to catch the Skytrain and even on the sky train it is sketchy I used to see guys rubbing up against woman during rush hour or reaching into woman's purses when I had to go to Metro town in Burnaby every day for two week I always seen these things going on every day . I would get up ayt 5 catch the first bus at around 6 get to Metro town around 8:15 .

Please explain why it's a shit hole and it's not a dick question since I'm looking at it as an alternative to BC. How about the Maritime for tech jobs? I was very close to moving to Halifax for a Java developer job but it was pulled at the last minute.
