Is the Southside really laid back?

Editor: The site says the Southside is known for being more laid back. I would love to know who gave out that information.


While recently perusing the HelloBC sites, I looked at the one for Burns Lake and area. I lived in town and the Southside during the seventies.

The site says the Southside is known for being more laid back. I would love to know who gave out that information and what it is based on. Are Southsiders more laid back than the harried, stressed out “town people” of Burns Lake? I imagine the hectic pace and traffic snarls must be terrible deal with.

I would love to go into more detail as I prefer facts over myth.  I see the myth of the Southside is alive and well.  Let for good reasons.
