Re: Hookers, pimps, needles and garbage

... boot. The behaviour you have now - freelance prostitutes hooking on street corners, "escorts" operating out of high rises in Olympic Village and Yaletown, unregulated brothels and massage parlours - is perfectly normal in regions where prostitution continues to be illegal.

Suggest you get out of your basement suite and enjoy Queen Elizabeth Park and Langara Golf Course. Not to mention the fresh air of the Tsawwassen peninsula. :mrgreen:

Re: Renters are getting hammered too...

My friend pays $1,500 for a 560 s.f. apartment at Maynards. It's a one bedroom and den. :shock:

...it's still cheaper than buying though. :D
Yaletown park units are going for $1500-1550 for only 500 square feet. Seems that $1500 is the minimum for a newer 1 bedroom place.

Re: Main Street + Olympic Village is the new West End

... Island, Canada Line (Olympic Village), Olympic Village, the Concord Pacific 'village', Expo Line (Main Street and Chinatown), Chinatown and Yaletown. Exciting! Will it be done? Looks unlikely based on the inability to build essential infrastructure like the Broadway line.

Re: Main Street + Olympic Village is the new West End
