I admit that sometimes, as a long-term renter, I do think about what it would be like to own a home. But that doesn't mean that I consider renting a stopover before buying. Renting is its own lifestyle and although currently dominated by millennial city dwellers in Toronto and Vancouver, it is not unique to this generation, nor to their respective cities.
There is a serious prospect that none of the Canadian teams will make the National Hockey League playoffs, an issue that has been the object of a fair bit of discussion in the sports media. Last week hockey moved to the very center of cultural diplomacy when standing alongside Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Barack Obama questioned Canada's hockey dominance by pointing out that the Stanley Cup was currently the propriety of Chicago, the President's home town.
Canada has been responsible for some of the greatest technological innovations in the world. Over the past 150 years inventions like the Canadarm, the telephone and pacemakers have dramatically impacted our culture and how we function in society, with 2016 being no exception.
Taste the Feeling is Coca-Cola's newest global campaign that hopes to capture the hearts and minds of a younger generation. Although the brand has been under a dark cloud of increasing scrutiny due to an ever-increasing and health-conscious public, Coca-Cola is resilient. And iconic.
Central Italy is a mountainous area with fascinating, high quality food and wines yet due to the cost of transport and import restrictions seldom do these unique products reach the Canadian market where they would be greatly appreciated.
The city starts its $35-million makeover of Burrard Bridge this month, so expect traffic chaos. Mostly, though, I feel hoodwinked by the consultation process, which changed nothing except for adding a major element which was not spoken of at all. The city decided, after the consultation, to include suicide prevention barriers after one single health officer spoke to the city to insist they should be done.
March Break is just around the corner, and if you're like many Canadians, you're probably wondering how you're going to afford to pay for it. Luckily, there's an easy way to save money, keep your children happy, and teach them a few life lessons too.

I am fading in and out of the conversation -- lost between the hum of the bus and the fact that it's after 10 p.m. On any regular night, I'd be getting ready to go to bed and thinking about school the next day. Tonight I'm trying to get out of -20 degrees Celsius and find us all a bed.
At the onset, it was polarizing for me to take on the moniker of 'The Prep Guy'. When people think of prep, they think of the Kennedy compound or weekending in the Hamptons. Probably pretty far off from a brown guy from the GTA. Having brands pull out of deals after learning my waistline, or backing away from a partnership because I am not the traditional prepster they originally planned for, was definitely disheartening.
According to the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, Toronto is home to Canada's largest Jewish population with approximately 200,000 Jews living in the Greater Toronto Area.

Islamic history is replete with pioneering inventions and discoveries, many of which are ingrained in modern society.
In the name of beautifying streets and the desire to create urban promenades, we often end up with poorly planned arterials that subject pedestrians and others to unnecessary safety risks. Look no further than the Front Street at Union Station in Toronto, where every morning a flood of commuters inundates the neighbouring streets.
If you are fortyish lesbian living in Toronto who's been to bed with every other fortyish lesbian living in Toronto, some of whom reside with cats, you can finally experience yourself on screen thanks with Portrait of a Serial Monogamist.
Across Canada, our elected leaders are rewriting laws to accommodate Uber, while largely refusing to act when it or its drivers break the law. In no other industry would it be acceptable for a company to continue breaking the law while the government fiddles.
According to a new study, when it comes to your romantic desirability, your choice in vehicle doesn't matter -- at least not in the way that you'd think. As it turns out, breaking the bank on an exotic car won't increase your chances of being lucky in love, as the majority of Canadians (51 per cent) find mainstream brands, such as Ford and Toyota, most attractive for a potential mate to drive -- even over luxury and exotic cars.
