Vancouver earthquake map

Yeah, something to do with earthquakes.  I love earthquakes much more than the whole globby warming thing, but almost no earthquakes in the past year or two.

I think this map is based on the building stock, rather than soil conditions.  It just says that the crummy old brick buildings are going to fall.  In reality, it's the cheap condos on deep soil that will tilt.  Anything on that hardpan will do well, including brick buildings.
