Re: Crime in Vancouver:
I moved to this city in June of last year. I initially thought Vancouver was my dream place to settle down, beautiful and safe, harmonious and prosperous.
But as the time goes by, I am rather disappointed and to some extent, frustrated.
I work in a convenience store downtown and from the day I started there have been shoplifters. Even worse is that these shoplifters are getting wilder and looking for things of higher value.
One thing in common, all are drug addicts.
I have no idea what tourists think when they see East Hastings, but I did see their astonishment when they saw shoplifters stealing and running away from my store right in front of them.
For now, I’m trying to convince myself that things will be fine by 2010, Vancouver will be the best.
