Seems like our fine govt. here in BC thinks that this is going to be great. Well our house prices have sky rocketed to the point that new ppl that r moving into the interior (this isnt even Vancouver) cannot even afford to buy anything because our wages dont meet the high cost of living here. There is a big boom in construction right now, and workers wanted everywhere. Im amazed that ppl could be out of work here due to the shortage on employees. What r ur thoughts and opinions on this topic? I feel we r going to be in a lot of trouble after the Olympics, the costs r going to be outrageous and we as tax payers r going to be footing the bill.

I was born in Vancouver, and have seen it grow over the past 100 years!!(lol) anyway, if the city does it right and calculates the cost involved and gets the buy-n from the community at large, it could become a very international city and that would be good for everyone. Cost of housing, etc... those happen all over the western world, not just there!
