Hmm, I wonder how that will affect all the TV shows that shoot there.

I guess the CW will be going dark for a few months.  That's basically their entire slate.

I'm no logistics expert, but that seems like it might be a problem.

You can get there if you drive through America.  But haven't they suffered enough?

Take the 99 if you need to get out by road. It's a gorgeous drive up to Kamloops.

Based on my unhealthily broad knowledge of bad sci-fi/fantasy filmed in Vancouver, I think they started a while ago.

Only if the internet gets cut off.  This is what is going to happen to us if we don't all get broadband.

I'm in Seattle where it's not nearly as bad.  I've started cataloguing my neighbors.  If this is gonna be a donner party situation, I'm not going off my diet.

After 6 months laid up from a knee injury I think you could only use me for pork rinds. I'm sure something on me as well marbled but apparently I've grown accustomed to eating so I'm not going without a fight.

If you haven't already , better start tracking and cataloging the mormans in your community.

Depends on the rail system really.  If the CP and CN lines are still open it won't be so bad.  If they're washed out too (which is entirely possible) then things could get pretty serious pretty fast.  The airports in the Lower Mainland are about to get VERY busy.

Might work if it wasn't washed out per the Article

If the world was really warming that rain would have dried up and there would be no mud for it to slide.

You are forgetting ant like freely suspended chains of linked human beings, allowing other Canadians and vehicles to pass over them. We are a socialist utopia after all.

I know this is Fark and we don't read the articles, but 99 is also closed due to a landslide south of Lillooet.

Didn't we have to build a railroad to get them to join?

Oh right. We're not supposed to mention that.

Until the big one sinks them into the ocean, they're still living in a more pleasant place than most of canada, unless you're racist I suppose.

I went down to the Fraser and filled up all the 5 gallon pails i had laying around.
If I didn't think to do that, the flooding would likely have been apocalyptic down south.

Meh as a Vancouverite I expect to not be able to leave the lower mainland by car between November and March. During the winter, the Coquihalla is the nastiest road I've ever driven. Besides why would I want to go east during the winter? it's cold, they have SNOW there. We have 2 ports, and grow food year round, Vancouver will be all right. The supply chain issues this will cause for the rest of Canada, that's gonna suck. My mom said when the 1 washed out in the 90s it took them years to fix it.

LawPD: So how long before they start eating each other?


It's the only part of Canada where you can grow food in the winter, as long as the hothouses haven't washed away.  Granted, I'm not sure how far a couple of fields of tomatoes are going to stretch.
