"Vancouver residents got rave reviews for their Olympic hospitality. They love to give directions. They say if you see the mountains you're facing north, if you see the ocean you're facing west, if your car just got stolen you're in Surrey (B.C.) to the east, and if you see people without health care waving handguns, you're in the States."
