Large asian population here in Vancouver. The largest Chinese population has settled in Richmond, because it sounds like "rich man". They better cross their fingers, because Richmond is the river delta of the Fraser River. Richest agricultural land in Canada, but it's been covered by sand and built up in this land scarce area. Greater Vancouver is limited by the North Shore mountains, the sea, and the US border (on the other side of that river.) Give it 50 or 100 years and Richmond will be another New Orleans -- flooded -- when our expected earthquake hits.
Didn't have much Chinese competition when I was searching for a better condition somewhat less older Porsche 944, I later realized. If you watch the license plates here, and see an x88, or 800 on it, you can guess the driver.
As for our gweilo superstitions, you won't find many highrises here with a 13th floor. By the way, the word means "white ghost" and I use it on myself often enough, like when I'm handed a plastic fork instead of chopsticks.
