This is a bit ridiculous since bikes aren't feasible for all. Punishing people who have to drive inside the downtown core, whether they live or work there is asinine. Public transit in Vancouver isn't exactly reliable.
I personally take the train for my work commute, but that's only because I live close enough to a train station. As soon as you need to take a bus the whole thing falls apart (in my experience).

Vancouver's always had a hatred for cars - just look at the ridiculous Lions Gate 3 lane shuffle - all because they didn't want highway conditions in/out of the downtown core.

Same reason they're ditching the viaducts, same reason they're cranking the parking tax. Also the reason why developers are told to only accommodate 60% of the suites with a parking space in new towers (which you'll pay a fortune for anyway), but double the bicycle parking availability.

I'm not against their policies, I just think it could be implemented better - we'll eventually all switch to car sharing/autonomous car services anyway, but they seem to cosy up to the corporates at this time and screw everyone else. Evo, Car2Go, ZipCar etc - they're not exactly affordable compared to actual car ownership. They might be comparable, but certainly not cheaper.

Why don't they implement their own car2go equivalent - subsidised via the billions they want to spend on skytrain out to UBC and deploy a fleet across the entire GVRD. If you could 'park-n-ride' anywhere as a matter of convenience, who the hell would bother owning a vehicle (aside from special use occasions when you might take a road-trip, or rent a truck for hauling furniture etc).

We need better solutions, smarter ideas - not reruns of the same crap that doesn't work.
Hell, if they just implemented fast, express bus services, north/south and east/west with limited detours, the city would move faster. From MEC on the North Shore back to my house took me 90mins. It's goddamn 30 minutes without traffic, 45 with moderate and an hour with a grind. To hell with that.. That's why I have my own transport!

It's one thing to pay so much for a performance and then not watch it, but it's their money and they've bought their spots ... It's really not her call what they do with their spot.
Rihanna Tells Fans Not To Catch Pokémon During Concert

Rihanna wants her fans to put down Pokémon GO during her concerts and watch her perform. This is, of course, a completely reasonable request, which sadly shouldn't have to be made.

For those who have never heard of the game... lucky you! All you need to know is that it is an Augmented Reality game from former Google division come independent game development company Niantic, based on a Japanese franchise of characters, which apparently causes people to lose their minds!

It may well be more addictive than crack, if these and similar headlines are to be believed.

The food was good, but the service was pretty dry and not very welcoming. The server dripped grease on my wife's blouse from the Iskender Kabob he was serving to the other side of the table and didn't even apologize for it. Pretty negative experience overall.

The room was nice, but the bed wasn't very comfortable and the toilet paper would serve better as sandpaper. Parking was ridiculously expensive. My experience was positive until I came home and saw a bunch of extra charges. It would be nice if the walls were a bit thicker because I could hear the lady in a room nearby who never shut up.
