VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF // It Hired Mexican Wrestlers to Enforce Our Mask Rules

Vancouver Would Be Cooler If is a column that advocates for things that either exist in other cities and/or could otherwise serve to improve and celebrate life in our own.

(via) This is not to advocate for violence against Vancouver’s small but persistently stupid crowd of anti-maskers who endanger us all with their devout denseness. Obviously, these enthusiastic lucha libre wrestlers in Mexico City’s Central de Abasto market are just having a little fun while reminding some of their forgetful fellow citizens to protect themselves against Covid. Still, here in Vancouver I wouldn’t mind seeing one of these oiled up studs dish the occasional body slam, pile driver, or flying elbow. It’s all fake, right? Really, I just like the idea of these guys roaming Skytrain stations and trains doing their thing, maybe even breaking up the occasional douchefest get-together in a Yaletown penthouse. A boy can dream.

Vancouver (and the World) Would be Cooler If Our Housing Crisis Was Solved Via Video Games

Vancouver Would Be Cooler If We Had More Safe Indoor Spaces for Skateboarding

Its vaulted ceilings may have once carried the tenors and altos of Catholic choirboys, but nowadays the acoustics of the abandoned St. Liborius Church have been repurposed to carry the screeches and echoes characteristic of a DIY Skatepark. We think Vancouver would be cooler if we had an all-inclusive indoor community skatepark of our own...

Vancouver Would Be Cooler If It Had a Massive Floating Housing Project at the Port

Imagine a colourful, mixed-used, housing complex like Amsterdam's Silodam floating at the foot of Victoria Drive.

Vancouver Would Be Cooler If It Had Floating Camp Sites in False Creek

Imagine Belgium's Vlot Kamp - essentially eight floating campsites accessed from the shore by canoe - next to Olympic Village.
