Metta World Peace Loves Vancouver & Wants the Twitterverse to Know it


We’re not sure if it’s the friendly people, scenery, nightlife or the B.C. bud that’s got the man formerly known as Ron Artest so enthusiastic about Van City.

The guy just doesn’t want to leave and has been spotted all over the city including Gastown’s Canvas Lounge where he was seen partying in a throwback Grizzlies jersey over the weekend. Local residents have been blowing up Twitter all month long with World Peace sightings in the city.

He’s also been TwitPic-ing photos of himself adorning Van City gear to show how much he loves the place.

We always love seeing visitors show their appreciation for the city. Or who knows? Maybe he’s just trying to pursue his career as a weatherman:
