Vancouver Magazine, May / June 1997
Whistler – we all know what happened there. The Gulf Islands, the Sunshine Coast? Lovely, and priced accordingly. The Okanagan and the Shuswap – in just five years, between 1988 and 1993, average selling prices more than doubled. Vancouver’s traditional cottage country is no longer a place to get away from it all, if by “it” you mean high prices, big crowds and all that time spent waiting in ferry lineups or otherwise getting around.
