Two Royal Roads University students are gathering stories about friendliness in Vancouver, to counteract what they say are unfair stereotypes of the city.

"There has been some media saying that Vancouver's not such a friendly place," said Frances Clarke, one of the people behind the Our Friendly Vancouver project.

"People have been very positive about it," said Clarke. "We did have some people who, when we started to talk to them, wanted to go into the negative.

"We... would try and gently guide them back to give us one example of a positive experience.'"

The stories are being collected for a Master of Arts in Intercultural and International Communication project at Royal Roads.
