Neighbourhoods like Point Grey, Dunbar and Kitsilano are losing small businesses, young families and vibrant community energy.
Douglas Todd from The Vancouver Sun stipulates why. One of the reasons is that young families have been priced out of the market. I have first hand experience of this with a lovely young family looking for a newish home in one of these neighbourhoods but having to pay over $3.3 million. They love the area and love the fact that their is room in the schools for their young children, something not guaranteed on the East side of Vancouver.
