Our Friendly Vancouver?

Friendly Vancouver
Frances Clarke and Tara Hansen, Royal Roads University students in the Intercultural and International Communications MA program, are on a quest to remake Vancouver's cold reputation. Gathering stories about friendliness in Vancouver, they are using them to counteract what they say are unfair stereotypes of the city in order to shfit the way citizens engage with one another. Clarke and Hansen have been setting up a booth at Nelson Park, in Vancouver's West End, to ask passers-by to share their stories of kindness or friendliness. Listen to their CBC Radio interview for Vancouver's The Early Edition (1:33). What do you think? Is Vancouver a friendly city? Read more and share your stories on CBC Radio's website. Clarke and Hansen received a 2015 Royal Roads University Award for Public Ethnography for this project.
