Vancouver proclaimed best non-U.S. city by dead-tree readers

Okay, so I’ve heard Vancouver’s a great place (never been but do want to go). But, do I really need Conde Nast Traveler‘s readers to tell me that? A dwindling number of print readers says that Vancouver rocks, according to CBC, making it the top city in North American outside the United States (talk about a drastically narrowed field …) for the fifth time since 2004.

There’s no word on whether Conde Nast Traveler readers in Mexico City, Montreal and Buenos Aires are in tears or considering revenge.

According to James Terry of Tourism Vancouver, reports CBC, “The award is a tribute to the people who work on the front lines of the city’s tourism and hospitality sector.”
