The best of Vancouver Our Stars of Vancouver is all about recognizing the best in business, service, entertainment and city offerings as voted by our readers. Although our life and business has changed since voting began, when times are tough it’s important to show the positives around us. There’s a social media post going viral these days encouraging people to shop local when the time comes that our lives get back to (the new) normal... in the meantime share reviews on your favorite businesses, buy gift cards or use their online or delivery services to help support them as we all navigate this unprecedented time.
