I dunno, man. I thought it was a pretty ridiculous comparison. I'm not a huge fan of Vancouver, personally, but I know it's more than a "big suburb" or whatever. In fact, considering how constrained things are there, and the emphasis on compact forms, Vancouver does quite well at being anti-suburban, despite being relatively young. It's less suburban-feeling than Seattle (which still feels big city) and Portland.
