Vancouverites love their dogs and their pristine city. They value the city's natural beauty, which makes it one of the best cities in the world to live in. There is no dog pooh to be found in its streets or parks. But less obviously, the city hides Vancouverites drug problem and the plight of the sex trade workers. In this painting, similar in style to those in the series on nationalism:"Red, white and blue brainwashed" I chose easily recognizable symbols: two poodles and the city's skyline. However on closer inspection the scenery reveals the underlying tragedy of disappearing women and the remains of drug use.
