it's been happening a while now. bigger businesses and industries are moving out of Vancouver into the burbs. things like fab shops and other industries.
it is too bad if tech people want to stay in van but want a house. i guess they can only live in a condo or move out of vancouver? there is tech in burnaby so maybe that is more suitable.
Vancouver will be like Whistler, a resort with food/service/tourism/services/furnishings for tourists and the rich and those lucky enough to already have property.
They need luxury cars, restaurants, grocers, shopping, alcohol, good coffee etc.
this is what Vancouver will become. A place to visit for fun and only the rich can live there or ones that have a home or inherited one.
regular joe workers will be in Langley, Delta, Abbotsford and head into the city for a night on the town for dining/entertainment have a good time at a concert/sport event or sight see around stanley park or the beaches. It's pretty common and most people are used to this anyways.
people have been coming into town for that for years.
