Vancouver is beautiful and Toronto does smell really bad, especially in the k-market in the summer. My least favorite part, worse even than the smell, are those swirling grime clouds that get kicked up whenever I seem to walk down spadina. There I am, minding my own business, and all of a sudden - voila - garbage tornado. So, so, so gross. I've never had that happen in Vancouver, although I'm sure east hastings has some sweet grime-related natural phenomena of its own.
Are a lot of people riding fixed in Vancouver now? I didn't see any when I was there in March.
I'm pretty sure I'm the only guy from Halifax on this forum.
