The Economist Names Vancouver Third Most Liveable City

Take that, Toronto.

August 18, 2015

Vancouver is going to need to invest in a new trophy cabinet with the way things are going. This year alone, we’ve been named one of the world’s best food cities by Condé Nast; good old Stanley Park was declared tops among “best places” in the province (so says Insights West), and now The Economist has named us the third best city in which to live. If G-Rob’s eco-plan achieves its goal of Most Green by 2020, we’ll be in serious need of some commemorative tattoos.

We took to the streets to ask locals: What do you think Vancouver was voted third most _____ in the world at?
