Vancouver makes a misleading appearance on Jeopardy
BC, and Vancouver specifically, has been featured on the popular game show Jeopardy! on many occasions over the course of its run on TV.
However, the appearance it made on Monday’s edition of the show, hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, has some people scratching their heads.
Pop quiz. How long does it take to get from the border to Stanley Park?
According to Google Maps, it takes approximately one hour to travel from the Peace Arch Border Crossing to Stanley Park. From the Sumas Border Crossing, it takes even longer, at around an hour and 15 minutes, and from the Aldergrove crossing, it also takes about an hour. The journey from Pacific Crossing to Stanley Park is just under an hour.
So, how did Jeopardy! get it so wrong?
It’s hard enough getting to Stanley Park from East Van in 20 minutes, let alone any of the border crossings.
