Vancouver: Built on Illicit Drugs and Guns

On Christmas Eve BBC World Service Radio program 'Assignment' aired a documentary: "Vancouver Gangland". Ho Ho Ho, Tourism Vancouver !

The Canadian city of Vancouver is routinely named as one of the best communities in the world in which to live. But the city, which is to host the 2010 Winter Olympics in the coming weeks, is fast developing another reputation: one built on illicit drugs and guns.

An interesting look at Vancouver's underbelly which, if you live in Canada, isn't exactly unknown. It is available to listen or download at the above link. (Audio: 23 mins).
