ESL business owners with college level overseas English vocab, Vancouver is so multicultural, historically port cities have always mercilessly simplified languages for the sake of business and trade.

Vancouver History:

Jak King Vancouver historian: I have a couple of books published (http://thedrivepress.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/the-drive-is-published/, and http://thedrivepress.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/the-encyclopedia-of-commercial-drive-is-released/) and I’m working on a number of others. Always researching ….

Hi there! Just wanted to remind you that Goad’s 1912 Map of Vancouver in 4 volumes is available online. Grandview is in Volume Two which you can find here:

http://www.reinstatethirdpartyappeals.org/salsbury.html – The Salsbury Garden Story

I think Goad’s 1912 map is one of the true glories of urban cartography and provides a unique picture of Grandview at that period of time. I use it every single day.

British Columbia

British Columbia is the only province in Canada west of the Rocky Mountains. BC is known for fishing, skiing, festivals, vast forests, and distinctly Pacific coastline views. People who live in BC are mostly from Aboriginal, European, and Asian backgrounds and live mostly in Vancouver and Victoria. Smaller cities such as Kelowna and sacred places like the Queen Charlotte Islands are known worldwide, some places in BC are so remote they are still untouched by development and only accessible by boat or small plane. BC Ferries are vital to transportation between the Mainland and Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast as well as other coastal communities.
