Nationally, real estate markets remain healthy, with home values showing modest to strong price appreciation in almost every Canadian city. New measures introduced by the federal finance ministry on October 3, designed to cool the housing market, have led to a decline in sales in Vancouver.
Using humour to perpetuate Trump's demeaning and offensive rhetoric towards women, to sell a Mexican product, is disgusting. This is a lot bigger than La Carnita, it's about recognizing that as a culture we cannot adopt this way thinking by making light of comments like this.
Thing is, it's not just about Cleveland. It's about dehumanizing and objectifying indigenous people, turning them into insulting caricatures and inaccurate stereotypes. It's about fans putting on redface and headdresses, doing tomahawk chops and war whoops. It's about clinging to the racist past instead of progressing into an equitable future. But change is happening...
For die-hard urbanites on the hunt for a condo in the heart of Canada's largest metropolis, the old real estate adage location, location, location mea...
Expect your warmup routine to take a little longer at first when you start adding in these exercises. But after you run through them a few times it will take you no longer than 10 minutes to complete. If 10 minutes is still too long for you to spend on a proper warm-up, think about this:
Sure, Thanksgiving is mostly lauded for the classic feast of turkey and cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, and an array of pies that will make our inner piggies grunt with overfed satisfaction. But before you get lulled into that turkey coma, try doing something a little more active together as a family this long weekend.

Women's homelessness is a significant, yet often hidden, crisis facing this country. Research shows that for every person who is absolutely homeless, there are at least three more who fall into the hidden homelessness category.
Leaves are falling, pumpkins are donning doorsteps, and costumes are starting to take the place of beach gear in stores. Halloween is just around the corner, and Toronto is one of the best places in the country to celebrate the spooky holiday. Consider one (or more) of these five must-visit Halloween festivities to get spooked and embrace fall this October.
If the study was properly designed and executed, the data would have been more compelling and conclusive than what the report indicates. Because the TPS failed in this respect, we know more about what the public and the police think the cameras may do rather than what the cameras have actually done. The $500,000 funding provided by the provincial government does not appear to have generated a strong return on its investment given the meagre results.
Toronto is showing signs of the city coming into its own as a global technology hub. More firms are making the move to Hogtown, and the city is also turning out its fair share of hometown heroes when it comes to successful tech companies.

September 20. It was an ordinary Tuesday, at least it started out that way. The sun was shining, I worked on a writing assignment in the morning and ...
Since Black Lives Matter Toronto's sit-in during Pride 2016, many of you have shown woeful levels of misunderstanding of where our community as a whole sits with the police. I've heard several of you say that the police don't pose a threat to LGBT people, because we've made "progress." "The bathhouse raids were 35 years ago. Everything is fine now between LGBT people and the police!" is how the argument goes, as if conflict between police and LGBT people is a thing of the past. What you mean to say is that your battle for your rights (which did not include an agenda for LGBT people of colour) was already hard fought decades ago.
People like to excuse police violence by claiming that it's just a few bad apples. Perhaps that's true, but then who is electing the police union leaders who make it their job to defend these bad apples? See, here's the thing about bad apples -- if you don't root them out, then the whole barrel will rot.If the police union was really protecting the police force, then they'd be the most outspoken critics of police brutality and unnecessary police-involved shootings. But they're not.
