No matter how rational or confident you are, the mean things people say can have an impact. The negative thoughts seep in when you don't even realize it. Even a little joking comment could do some damage. Hopefully this can help us all be more aware of our impact on others.
It's perhaps understandable that folks in Toronto have seasonal confusion. After all, while the rest of us welcome spring, Torontonians think it must ...
While an offer with no subjects could certainly be more attractive to the seller, I do not advise my mortgage clients to go in without subjects due to the potential risks involved.
Gone are the days of silver bullet solutions. A personal car is great for many situations, but not for every trip; there are better tools available. The upcoming transit referendum is offering all of us an opportunity to vote for a better toolbox.
Like it or not, this referendum is the meal that is being served on the table.
B.C. may very well have some of the lowest personal income tax rates in Canada, but that doesn't mean the lowest tax bill. So doing that "lowest personal income tax" thing is a cute trick, but at the end of the day it's a trick. And not a particularly empathetic one.

They might take a pause from their business activities while they settle in to their new country, but it's only a matter of time before the money, and the trickle-down benefits, start flowing, right? Not so.
The weather has really changed here in Vancouver and it is looking more and more like spring everyday. I wanted to find out the latest spring tren...
The returns are in and some of the 2014 local election campaign spending in B.C. isn't pretty. How the parties spent their moolah also says something about their campaign approach.
But what's really killing off the economic hopes of most British Columbians is the incessant nickel-and-diming by a government that lacks the political will to set personal income tax rates at a level where the tax burden is shared fairly among everyone in B.C.
I didn't grow up in Chinatown. Neither did my mother and father. My ancestors didn't come to North America to pan for gold or build the railroad. No one in my family paid a head tax.
