Peak Vancouver

5639364689_e59ba39d10_o

Peak Vancouver | Myth, Cliche | A means to define/classify those moments when two or more characteristically Vancouver-centric elements combine to typify our urban zeitgeist; the ultimate expression of the city’s spiritually secular, self-absorbed, sea-to-sky flakiness. Often employed ironically as a hashtag.

Usage | “I just saw a pair of old NIMBYs on the False Creek seawall yelling at a naked paddleboarder doing yoga… #PeakVancouver”
