    The piece on "Chinatown" is misleading. Since the mid 90's, it has largely beccome a rundown shadow of itself, largely because there are now so many Chinese that an area called "Chinatown" no longer holds any meaning. (It would be like going to Bangalore and looking for "India Town"....nonsensical.) It is now nothing buy 5 square blocks of tourist traps.

    If you want genuine sights and sounds of China, go to Richmond, one of Vancouver's suburbs. It is not a few blocks of Chinese stores. Its an entire municipality whereby you would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between it and a small city/town in China.

    As well, Dunbar is hardly one of the nicest neighbourhoods on the West Side – in reality, it would rank in the bottom half.
