My cousin lives on or near the burnaby side of the street that seperates it from Vancouver, and my aunt live near the university. Or the other way around. Still, it's a pretty good skyline for only 205,000

You mean Boundary Rd? Do they live near the PNE area, because that is a residential area as well.

BURNABY IS COOL! :eek2:

It's almost like a mother who nurses her baby, but doing so when she doesn't have enough milk. So she has to go to the store to buy it like Gerber's or....well what is that brand? It's sort of soy stuff, Simelac. Actually it may not be soy but some sort of a goat milk product, or something. ANYWAY, ok I am scrapping my previous example and staeting over. O.K., it's like cows in the field of grass which has been eaten a lot, so they sort of spread out to get at the places where it's growing, sort of.
Stuff seems so tiny and spread out, yet still cool!
I give it an 8, but I will rate it a 9.

Burnaby is beautiful with its numerous parks, hilly landscape, etc...SFU is amazing, especially with Univercity coming up. If i dont get into UBC, SFU will do just fine (then, i get to live in Burnaby)

Skyline 6.5/10...+1 coz i just love the place!

Well, the closer you get, the worse it looks because the skyline is so stretched in one direction that you wont be able to get it all in. These are the best views right here.
