Yeah, sure. Maybe the drug addicted low lifes were sent to Vancouver but I see you kept the violent ones that like to shoot 10 year old girls in the head while they ride on public buses, women that like to slaughter their families with knives and gangs that like to drag highschool kids out of buildings and kill them, and thats just in under the last 2 weeks. Do we even need to go into the slayings and violence that go on every summer during carribean day festivals etc? You are right it's not arrogance to be No. 1, and to be number one you have to be ranked by a third party. In various rankings done by people who know better than you and I what the criteria for what rates as the best cities in the world. Vancouver always at the top IN THE WORLD, sometimes even first, while Toronto lags way back. Here's a ranking of top cities done in 2004 Vancouver is tied for first, Toronto is way back tied for 13th. A drop off of 9 spots from 2002. Must be all of that violence in Toronto. Also note that Montreal has jumped ahead of Toronto in the rankings: http://theage.com.au/articles/2004/02/06/1075854028808.html Here's one from 2002 where Vancouer and Melbourne tied for #1 spot. Oh there's Toronto tied for 4th. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/2299119.stm Also the same ranking as reported by CNN: http://archives.cnn.com/2002/WORLD/europe/10/04/world.cities/#fulllist So you are right. It is not arrogant to be No. 1. Thanks for offering me the invitation point out the fact that Vancouver is #1, not only in Canada but in the world. So now we know where jealousy is the #1 sport, right spanky?
