Dunbar

Dunbar | Place | Dunbar is a wealthy neighbourhood and NIMBY stronghold on the West Side of Vancouver. According to the Georgia Straight, its reputation goes way back: “In 1926, the Point Grey Town planning commission (and Dunbar was still part of this) had this vision: ‘a city in which the best type of home could not only be built, but also adequately safeguarded from the encroachments of undesirable types of development.'”

Usage: “I heard Dunbar is resisting a new supportive housing project.” “Really? Classic Dunbar.”
