Bidding wars for Vancouver real estate can have unintended consequences if a buyer offers more than the property's appraised value.
At present, this time-consuming service is an uninsured one and its accompanying opportunity cost -- taking physicians away from attending to other patients on a fee-for-service basis -- is borne solely by the physician. Because the College considers the medical document to access medical marijuana equivalent to a prescription and, since prescriptions and activities related to prescriptions are insured services, physicians cannot charge patients; fair enough. But what about the for-profit corporations who are benefitting at the physicians' expense?
So thank you Canada. No one elected me to speak for the Americans, but I decided to do it anyway. Thanks for being such a good neighbor! I am talking about the less public things for which we owe you thanks. You have a big heart. And you are generous. We and the world keep eating at your house. You really are so nice.Thanks for that!
I am watching negotiators from impacted countries like the Philippines working earnestly on a new agreement to reduce global climate pollution. At the same time, I am reading stories back home about Prime Minister Stephen Harper telling the House of Commons yesterday that regulating greenhouse gas emissions from Canada's oil and gas sector would be "crazy." Let's be clear who is crazy here.
The West Coast is a part of who their father is. And that's an important thing for them to know.
If these expenses are an example of presidents acting frugally in the face of funding shortfalls, taxpayers should be very concerned.
While the outcomes for HIV may have changed over the course of the past two decades, there are still stigmas attached to the disease that can create gaps in treatment. To help remove such stigmas, the government of Canada must commit to making TasP a national strategy.
Opinions run hot around pipeline conflicts, and more is ahead of us. There are many arguments for and against civil protest, but one of the most persistent is that these people are hypocrites. That if you drive a car, take a plane, use hairspray, or otherwise consume fossil fuels in any way, you have no right to stand up. This comparison is troubling for a number of reasons.
Dear Santa: You probably don't get Christmas letters from an entire province, but this year we hope you'll think of adding B.C. to your magical journey.
More than one million visitors arrive every year to see this accidental tourist attraction. The goats first appeared 40 years ago, when the Coombs market was built by Norwegian immigrants who had grown up with sod roofs and wanted to bring that feature to their adopted country.
Have you noticed that when politicians in the U.S. and Canada talk about education reform, they say it's what "the economy" needs. They tell us the only way to do that is for schools to produce the kinds of workers that corporations want. Given the fact that there can be no economy without a healthy environment, isn't this focus on what the economy needs a bit short-sighted?
Once upon a time, India was a nation where women used to be worshipped. Though we still build temples of goddesses to celebrate them and pray to them, the treatment of the living-breathing goddesses sitting next to their devotees tells different real life stories.
I thought for a while that work tires me out more than it used to because I'm getting older, that I just don't have as much energy as I used to. But, um, I'm 31. I'm not exactly shaking hands with the dude in the black cloak.
After more than a decade of waiting, the Southern Residents are no better off now than when they were listed as endangered 15 years ago. Federal fisheries managers appear unwilling to address the availability of Chinook salmon, an essential food for whales, lest they rile interests in the sports and commercial fishing sectors.
