#Anonymous on Sep 12, 2016 :
Most people living in Vancouver work in the Portland OR area.
Salaries are a bit shocking, as these certainly have not caught up to the rest of the US.
Additionally, in Portland, there is income tax.
Living in Vancouver, it’s almost worse, as Vancouver companies often do not want to pay what Portland companies do, the rent is nearly the same, and often – since most of us live outside of downtown, we get taxed on what we buy, too.

As for wine, local wine is even higher than others. A Pinot Noir from the Red Hills area (Newberg, etc.) goes for a minimum of $40 in the store.
I can buy a CA wine or even a cheap Australian wine for $15, but most of these are the low end.
Wine, like in Portland, in Vancouver is sold in stores.
Prices have gone into overdrive here, with no relief in sight. Sad.
