I think Vancouver is the nicest city in Canada

Ive been to many cities, TO, MTL, VAN, PEI, OTT, QUE, Victoria and out of all i think Van city is not only the nicest most beautiful city in canada but one of the nicest in the world. I think BC is the nicest province. The last time i was there was last summer and every time i go visit, (just anywhere in BC doesnt have to be Van) it just gets me so excited cause of how nice it is over there. Everything from the Pacific ocean, to downtown Van (especially waterfront), to the little shops in the historic buildings, to Metropolitan centre, to Grandville, or any of the many suburbs, its really a special city that every canadian deserves to visit at least once in their life. All the little suburbs there bring their own culture to the Bc lifestyle and what makes it unique.

when i miss being there i just look up specific spots in Van on google maps, do street view and it brings back memories.

And the skytrain is probably the best public tansportation system in canada, how it runs directly to every suburb is great. Thats why 1.5m people take it everyday.

If you think Vancouver is nice, wait until you go to Surrey!

As someone said before,

Puckgenius is the best at drive-by trolling. He'll start a thread with a title/original post that may start a flame war and then never post in that thread again.

My hat's off to you for this one, sir

I think you're wrong.

PS Skytrain is a joke. Go to Beijing, NYC, or London to see a real metro.

Everyone that thinks that Vancouver is the nicest city in Canada doesn't actually live in Vancouver.

It's not all it's chalked up to be. It never stops raining, everything is ridiculously expensive and we have the worst driving laws in the province.

I would actually agree that BC is probably the best province in Canada...but Vancouver is not the best city in Canada, sorry.

I visited Montreal once and on terms of beauty Vancouver knocks it out of the park in my opinion.

I didn't get to experience the night life but I assume it's better in Montreal since that's the first thing people bring up when they talk about Montreal.

Beauty is one quality when comparing cities, unfortunately for Vancouver, its probably the one of the few qualities that it beats Montreal out on.
