The number one issue in every corner of B.C. this year is affordable housing. In May British Columbians will head to the polls with a rising class of young people wondering if they'll ever own a home, Gen Xers considering leaving B.C., and seniors telling their seniors advocate that housing is the number one issue for them.
When someone gives you an amazing gift like I got exactly 20 years ago this Christmas, that amazing feeling of gratitude might not come until years later. But looking back, you realize that all those helping hands are what gave you the chance to fight another day.
