You want the real truth?

Sunday morning the sad saga ended. Bruce Boudreau was relieved of his duties as head coach of the Canucks, replaced by Rick Tocchet. It was the worst kept secret in living memory. For at least a week the story had already been the dominant one in the mainstream hockey...

Why high interest rates make rent 2 own a good option

The logic escapes me! Ever since interest rates started rising, rent-2-own applications have gone down. The reasoning seems to be that the higher payments required by those higher interest rates make it more challenging to afford a home. That is, of course, true--for...

The Canadas

When we think of “multiculturism,” that word that the senior PM Trudeau carved into our everyday vocabulary, we usually think of ethic backgrounds. Especially here in the Southwest corner of BC, we associate multiculturism with the diversity of our origins, whether...
