Vancouver before Expo 86. A different world

Few realized the implications of inviting the world to Vancouver in 1986. Expo was a fantastic, professional and world class event. In the years following many changes have rippled across the Lower Mainland. Not all with great results.

We are changed forever  in Vancouver. The price of admission to our beautiful city is too much for many. Many of those who have a several generation history with the area can no longer afford to be a part of it.
