I haven't been to any of those coats. Just Seattle by air and then bus to Vancouver return.
More likely the person reading the sign is hungover as the directions are good (both are broadly SSE from SB) but the Vancouver distance is in kilometers while the Seattle distance is in miles... I was a bit confused by Liverpool until I realized they are using spherical geometry and it is about right for the great circle.
