"Life on the coast" -- BC Ferries' new ad slogan
They've got it in foot-high letters on bus shelters. Has anyone else noticed this on the Lower Mainland or the Island?

To me, it sounds like some kind of sentence!

2. Now whenever somethign shitty happens
People will look up and think "Yup"

...I don't think people who live in the Interior refer to it as "the Interior" either...

They're more like discriptive terms, for the sake of non-residents, than anything else.
