…”Vancouver: A city on the edge of the continent, and itself”…”Canadian dollar on its hottest streak since the currency first floated in 1970″…
SOMETHING ABOUT….”a city where the population will grow, not shrink; where the young will not abandon it; where people are flocking here, not fleeing it.”
Now at a crossroads and must decide what kind of city it wants to be, they say.
“It threatens to become like a hundred other North American cities — another Toronto, another Dallas — but, as its geography has been compelled to do in the past, it can go its own way and forge something unique”.
Despair the former. Believe in the latter, they say.
Cheers to a unique Vancouver!
SOMETHING ABOUT….“The loonie has rallied 3 per cent this year, part of a broad-based surge against the U.S. currency, which has wilted amid a revaluation of growth prospects under a Trump administration.”
