Vancouver: Nice but boring says The Economist

The skyline of vancouver is seen from the water.

It may be one of the hottest housing markets in Canada, and popular with buyers around the world, but Vancouver has been branded “mind-numbingly boring” by The Economist.

The article hits back at the city’s frequent rankings as a great place to live and says that the nicer it becomes the more boring it becomes. The business-travel writer, known simply as Gulliver asks: “What right-minded person would rank Vancouver better than Paris?”

CBC notes that Gulliver doesn’t make it clear if he’s even visited Vancouver and highlights a range of things in the city that are not boring.

With the sky-high prices and the many who struggle to afford mortgage payments and rents in the city, there’s certainly no shortage of those who emphatically disagree with Gulliver’s assessment.
