The Vancouver meme continues apace: Wealthy Chinese buying up (and wrecking?) Vancouver

February 15th, 2016 · 45 Comments

We’d heard there was a New Yorker writer in town a few months ago working on a piece about Vancouver. It’s out now. It’s main job seems to be to continue circulating the catchy narrative about Vancouver.

As always, in my role as chief grump and nitpicker, I thought it could have had a tiny bit more context — i.e. more than a quarter of Vancouver’s 600,000 residents are Chinese and many people are not like this — and, oh, some actual numbers besides the same old partial ones as always.

But that’s just me. Your thoughts on what you learned, or didn’t, from this piece?
