Moving to Vancouver, Canada

edited August 2007 in Social Entropy++
So It looks like my family is very likely moving to Vancouver sometime in October. So I'm wondering what is there to do out there? The only time I've been out of my general area (Southern, Ontario) was when I went to Disney World when I was 10.

Also how is the job scene out there? I have my High School diploma and planning on going back to school in the next year or 2 but till then I'm going to need some form of income. Cant mooch of my parents anymore (although I will be living rent free).

EDIT: Also anyone know what the provincial tax out in BC is?

    A while ago I met my friend's girlfriend who is Canadian.
    The conversation came around to it being Canada Day the next day.

    I said "What does one do on Canada Day? Eat Poutine and wear Tuques?"

    She literary leaped over the table to hug me. Seems she hadn't met a person who new what a tuque was since moving to Australia almost a year previous.

    Man, I've never heard that expression and I've lived in Michigan my entire life. I wonder if at the border they tell people that we call them Knit Caps over here, and then everyone just abides.

    American Bacon killed John Candy, star of Canadian Bacon. It'll also most likely contribute to the death of the film's director, Michael Moore.

    Coincidence?

    Torque and Touque are two different spellings.

    You fail at this.
