“Which country has the highest 'gun homicide' rate, though? That's surely what he was talking about in that instance.”

CarlRoss1 on May 27, 2014 at 21:54:18

“Surprisingly, Finland with a population near 5 million has the highest per capita gun homicide rate. Higher than the USA.”

“Suicides and accidental deaths/injuries by gunfire are part of the carnage, too.”

“"If communication is the cornerstone of a good relationship, this little guy has a tough road ahead of him."

... That's a pretty harsh slam to a boy who's obviously somewhere between 6-9 years old. Can't we at least wait until 16 to start the gender wars?”

“Can everyone stop pretending to be outraged by this?

The guy made a joke – the same kind of joke men and women make all the time, the kind of jokes we all laugh at when we hear the cast of 'Happy Endings' say the same thing – and she overreacted.

It's a marriage. They had a fight. Who cares?”

“Could we take out all the 'God' stuff, too?”

“It's easy to get rid of the religious and sexist content:

Oh Canada....
In all of us command...
We keep our land glorious and free...

I have been singing it this way for years and encourage others to do the same.

At least we don't have to contend with war-mongering exploding rockets in our anthem.”

“The "god stuff" was added while I was in school, in the 60's. I stopped singing the national anthem in protest at that point.”

“This man is a bigot, clearly, and his letter was distasteful in many ways. This is obvious.

However, I think the Calgary Herald was right to publish this letter. It's a matter of free speech, and the response seems to show most people are (rightly) opposed to him and his views. This is a good thing.

If someone is about to say something foolish or this ignorant, it's better to give them the mic. Let them talk and sound foolish, and let open conversation and debate flow from it.

And if, for whatever reason, people wrote in and the majority agreed with him, well then I guess we'd know just how backwards many people still are.”

“That was one of Maher's most brilliant New Rule finales in a long time. I live him, and I almost always agree with what he says. However, his tone and the way he attacks his targets wouldn't convert anyone on the other side. This, though, was a treasure. It was subdued and wise and eloquent. Bravo.”

“If they're going to monitor these YouTube views like the Gestapo, the same should apply for TV, Radio, and Print media. Daily newspapers still report hundreds of thousands of subscribers a day, even though a small portion of those people actually read their coverage or take in their advertisements that are paying for their operations. TV stations report every single possible view and signal, even though we all know many of those are fraudulent or carry over from other shows. Radio stations, ditto. Music is the same -- whether it's a video or a record.”

“I know what obnoxious means. I didn't understand your 'holier than thou' bit or how i was 'left behind'.

I'm not trying to be combative, I was just confused.

I was just trying to say that I thought her way of saying, "Oh, don't worry everybody... I don't like Facebook, but I use it for..." was essentially the same thing as everyone who takes pride in getting off the site.

I don't care if people have Facebook or not. It makes no difference to me. But, I don't think we all have to pretend to hate it.”

“"While I have zero love for Facebook, I stay on it because otherwise I'd miss out on 75 percent of the invitations in my friends group," writes Marwick

That's just an apologist attitude. It's a way of hedging your bets. Saying 'I have zero love for Facebook, but...' is no different than quitting it just to say you quit it. It's just like saying, 'Just to play Devil's Advocate...' and then going off on a tangent you actually believe in.

You know what? I do like Facebook. I really do. Maybe miss Marwick should admit that, too.”

Clovie on Jan 5, 2013 at 20:24:34

“What an obnoxious response, but perfectly illustrative of those 'hurt at being left behind and irritated by the "holier than thou" and "hipper than thou" signals it sends.'

You ignore the fact that Marwick's explanation is legitimate. She doesn't want to be left out of gatherings because her friends forget they have to use another means to invite her. What about that says that she somehow has some secret love for FB that she's just too hip to admit? Says more about you.”

“But, if you read his comments, he's admitting the entire time that today's generation of home buyers won't have the ability their parents had, and he agrees that there's a huge inequality between affordability and salary.

It sounds like he's just saying he doesn't believe the hysteria. I don't see what's wrong with that.

Also, please don't put quotations around "average" when I never said he was an average home buyer.”

“He's a home buyer, too. I just think the desire to rage over his comments is a little childish. And, I think the article was excellent, as was the interview, but the headline was fodder for it.”

X31 on Aug 28, 2012 at 02:53:16

“A home in Vancouver is in the $850K - $1.6M range. (I know someone who just sold a tiny two bedroom townhouse for $1.1M) A 30% correction does not produce affordability. 30% of $850K is $600K. With $100K down and a $500K mortgage (at 5%) that means payments of $3000 per month -- and $380K in interest over 25 years (more than the "correction" bit off.)

With the average two person household income at $76K home ownership is completely untenable for most. Of course BC also has the highest poverty rates in Canada...

If anything the bubble has been understated.”

stopgeorge on Aug 27, 2012 at 17:32:14

“Do you consider him to be the "average" home-buyer?

Funny you should say "childish" -- because only a child would believe him.

His comments are a slap in the face to common-sense. They are, quite obviously, made for his self-interests.

Seriously, you don't see a conflict of interest here?!!”

“Reading the comments, I think his comments have been taken a bit out of context, or at least the debate around them is a little overblown, which isn't surprising when the headline on the front page is, "IT'S NOT THAT BAD".

Yes, he can afford them, but he wasn't making the comments from the perspective of somebody rich. He's not Mitt Romney talking about his wife driving two Cadillacs, and he shouldn't be portrayed as such.

He's simply stating that Vancouver's real estate and condo bubble is overblown, and that's his opinion. That's really not an arrogant thing to say, nor is it really incorrect. It's what he thinks.

To portray it as the "Condo King" sounding arrogant isn't exactly the story here. Don't knock somebody for being successful, or for having an opinion on his own industry.”
