Yesterday @toptekkie pointed out a pretty neat website to view a bunch of internet-linked SDRs from around the world. A lot of them are HF, though there are some VHF and UHF ones spattered around. Lots of these SDRs are connected to great antennas on the roofs at universities so reception is pretty good.

Sadly there doesn’t seem to be an SDR on here for Vancouver. Closest I could find was Victoria. Maybe a good project to go put an SDR and raspberry pi on the roof and hook it up?
