When you buy a home, you don't buy a national market, or even a provincial, regional or municipal one. You buy one property in a local market. What's happening in your area could be completely different from that in another province, or certainly at the other end of the country.

The "Socially Responsible Van" tour is, to be blunt, completely and totally irresponsible. The tour capitalizes on and monetizes the misfortune of others. It lumps all residents of the Downtown Eastside into the same dismissive, downtrodden boat of addiction, poverty and illness.

The government of B.C.'s decision to impose a 15 per cent hike in Land Transfer Taxes for foreigners who buy real estate in metro Vancouver will do almost nothing to lower high housing prices.

There are multiple ways to identify as a minority in Canada with language, ethnic, religious and/or racial/racialized status amongst the principal basis. Even if in certain situations you identify as a minority, that may not be how you're seen by others and/or how you feel in day-to-day interaction.
Shots fired! While our media has been pointing out how Chinese buyers are driving up real estate prices, the Chinese media has been dissecting our economy and government, and warning Chinese buyers of the dangers of owning Canadian real estate.
Every city has its hotspot -- the coolest community, the hippest 'hood. It's the place where the stylemakers go, where the trendsetters do their thing. It's about knowing where to go, where to be seen.

As Gord Downie closed the show with kisses to the cheeks of his bandmates and nods of gratitude to the 20,000 fans in Vancouver, the courage the lead singer displayed overwhelmed me. It saddened me, too. Downie, my cultural hero, is battling the same awful disease -- glioblastoma multiforme -- that took the life of my wife, Julia Pelish-Brijbassi, 137 days ago.
