So we heard all the news about how Vancouver may look like a great place to live, but it's not.  And B.C. as a whole is one of the unhappiest parts of Canada, where not a single city in our beautiful province cracks the top 10.   Toronto is actually a happier city then Vancouver.  Who comes up with these stats?   They say that if you want to be happy, move to Quebec-anywhere in Quebec.  Vancouverites rated their life satisfaction at 7.8 out of 10.  Nobody asked me.  How about you?  And since when is 7.8 out of 10 so bad.

Well I might have a solution to our problem. (if it really is a problem).  According to a new study in  Psychological Science it is said that people show more signs of happiness when they sniff sweat generated by people in a neutral emotional state. It goes on to say that 'being exposed to sweat produced under happiness induces a simulacrum of happiness in receivers, and induces a contagion of the emotional state - whatever that means.  So when somebody is happy, they will infuse others in their vincinity with happiness.  Well if that's the case, then gather round. Let's make Vancouver the happiest city on earth!!!
