Vancouver of Thousand Ugly Sculptures – Part One

By Eric Bright

Part One

Vancouver is the city that hosts countless ugly sculptures and I am going to prove it to you in here.

I live in Vancouver since 2004. I love the city, the people, and the culture. The city is certainly not amongst the richest of cities in Canada. It is actually a poor city by many standards.

The minimum wage is half as much as is needed to barely survive, and the city does not look healthy by the look of its tens of pan-handlers, beggars, wandering, mentally ill, homeless people, the Hastings’ front view, or any other measure you might want to take into account.

ISPs will start to favour them and neglect the rest of us who might not be able to afford the new fees. So, inadvertently it shifts the ISPs away from net neutrality into a discriminating Internet.
