They should have though of that before deciding to live in the centre of the one of the biggest cities in Canada. If you want quiet, Maple Ridge and Abbotsford offers you this. Enjoy
I live in Burnaby but I do have a small place downtown for sleepovers as I work there. So personally I could't care less as to whether downtown residents will have to suffer as a result. However, my point is that it is completely retarded to zone a 2-3 block stretch for residential (with a co-op full of kids), large hotel, liquor store, a club and commercial/business. This is the situation right now in certain parts of Coal Harbor for example. And as you Zivan, I was born and raised in Europe where unlike here people can actually hold a drink without turning into complete idiots after two 3.5% "beers"...So what makes sense in Europe does not necessarily work here.
