Where I grew up, one politely avoided embarrassing others by bring up the fact they lived in North Vancouver, which at that time was most definitely the wrong side of the tracks (I hear they even had hoodlums).

Nowadays, owing a home in North Vancouver is an accomplishment eliciting envy and admiration. Who would ever have thought?

If only one had been crafty enough to ignore the dim-witted sneering and get in before it became unattainable.
