by Sean Orr | Vancouver is world’s third most unaffordable place to live. Ha ha, this is awesome. We were just talking about this in the comments section of another T&2S. I believe one of the statements made was “Vancouver is far from the most unaffordable city in the world”. Wrong!
Vancouver vs. suburbs: What homes you can get for around $750,000. I don’t know if they did this on purpose but all the houses in the suburbs are depressing and tacky. Reverse white flight!
KK on Twitter: “Christy Clark addressing Vancouver’s arts and culture community promises to a) restore arts cuts b) seek new year over year arts funds”. Hmm, that’s cool. But will she unfreeze minimum wage? Restore welfare? Restore family services? Reinstate elected reps to Translink? Call a public inquiry into BC Rail? Reinstate the freeze on tuition? Stop giving subsidies to the oil and gas industry? Take the BC pension plan off the stock market? De-privatize BC Ferries and fire David Hahn? Cancel TILMA? Reinstate the carbon tax? Cancel the Enbridge pipeline through unceded territory? Create a missing women’s task force? Create a mental health task force? Halt the Gateway Project? Fix the electoral process? Reinstate funding to extra curricular sports? Relinquish private power licenses on our rivers? Instate a housing legacy? Stop the export of raw logs? Put a moratorium on fish farms? Nope. Will the NDP? Nope.
Vancouver man gets life in prison for 1975 U.S. murder of aboriginal activist. This when one look into the man’s eyes would tell you he was innocent. Judging by recent comments I’m going to get called out for saying that, but god damn, I used to serve this gentle warrior coffee everyday. This is our Leonard Peltier and it breaks my already broken heart.
With courage, we can fix EI. Or with piles of cash. That might help too.
Hate Campbell? Don’t worry: Join the BC Liberals anyway. A regional roundup of election reports.
Strike could disrupt real estate transactions. Errbody wants a piece of dat pie.
