So in my last post, we see that the Sound Off page is not available because they're "rebuilding the canada.com network".
O.k., fair enough, I'll buy that...maybe it's all just a coincidence. So I found the link for the canada.com Sound Off home page: http://www.canada.com/shareit/soundoff/index.html
What's this? All of the Sound Off sites for every other city are still active. Coincidentally, Vancouver is the only one showing no active Sound Off boards. Just in case they drop that page, I'll copy and paste the entire text contents below (I've bolded the lonely Vancouver heading):
