We don’t need hundreds of thousands coming mostly to Vancouver to drive the living cost up astronomically.
It won’t increase prices in any noticeable way, never mind increasing them “Astronomically”. You’re assuming that they’re all going to be moving into the same housing region, which they won’t, I would guess they’ll be spread across the GVRD, with some possibly going into the interior, and that dissemination is too small to make any real difference on prices anywhere.

Careful now, you’re xenophobia/racism is showing. A not so subtle implication that the people coming will be criminals just because they’re Asian. Completely ignoring that the biggest drug manufactures/distributors in Canada is now, and has always been (At least for the past 30+ years.) the Hells Angels. An almost entirely white organization by the way, because they’re also white supremacists.
