I lived the first 22 years of my life in richmond,
then moved to T.O. ( for the last 4)
yes everyone is in bed by 11 in Vancouver, its the pot.
IMO toronto and its 4 actual season , night life , and city living is a much superior city.
funny thing is growing up in BC they actually teach you to hate toronto.
^^ Another example of why Toronto is better. Growing up they teach equality, and if you don't like it, you're forced to live with it.
When I first moved to Toronto, what I loved most was walking through my neighbourhood at 1am and seeing whole families, grandparents included, sitting on their porches talking, saying hi to people passing by.
vancouver is full of ex torontonians so it can't be that different. they have had some amazing weather recently, but a pile of rain for the past 2 months. it's true that their nightlife is not as robust as here in to. we get lake ontario and they have the pacific. vancouver has world class skiing facilities within reasonable distance. they got the olympics (plus the world expo in 86) and we got squat.
but in the end we have the best hockey club in the world so toronto wins. too many loose canon players in van.
