Geology[edit]

The well known extreme Cascadia subduction zone risk of a mega-earthquake (9+ possible) and associated tsunami needs to be covered. Vancouver is ill-prepared for this and its high population, high-rise glass buildings and low-lying coastal make this an important issue. The proximity to Mt Baker is also a factor that is neglected in terms of environment threats. DavidCampbell99 (talk) 18:22, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Terminal City[edit]

Does this term really refer to Vancouver? In ictu oculi (talk) 07:47, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, it's a long held nickname - see the name of the roller derby league. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 168.167.213.73 (talk) 18:49, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Only passing reference to real estate prices[edit]

Vancouver is in the grips of an accelerating real estate speculative bubble[1]. When factoring in average wages, it is the third least affordable city in the world[2]. This should be added to the article IMHO.

[1] Yes, there’s a housing bubble. No, Ottawa has no clue what to do [2] Vancouver ranks third most unaffordable housing market in study, worse than New York and London
