“What really surprised them in #California was the sharp decoupling there is in Metro #Vancouver between incomes and #housing prices,” said Andy Yan, an associate professor of professional practice at #SFU who also heads its City Program.
I really do want to make housing collaboration part of the community we build at #DWebYVR

I respect the lizard peoples' holiday traditions, but I would appreciate if they could at least *try* to help me forget we are living in a dystopian wasteland.
I am a community gardener.
This year, someone chopped all the green off my grape vines, including the grapes, in August.
3 weeks ago, someone removed all of the plants in the gardens in our section. They also took all of the supports we had purchased and built.
I couldn’t write about it, when it happened.
What would motivate someone to do this?
My heart is heavy. Our neighbour gardener had built up their garden over years, plants that covered the ground and eliminated weeds.
Starting in 2016 in #FederalCourt of #Canada, he opposed a probe by the #CRA of his #finances after he was named in massive leak of documents from #Panamanian company #MossackFonseca. That leak, known as the #PanamaPapers, revealed how thousands of people & entities used #offshore #TaxHavens.
The Space Between Here & Now looks at the life of 17-year-old Aimee Roh, a #Korean #Canadian girl who has "sensory time warp syndrome" — a condition that makes her time travel to a moment in her life when she smells something linked to that memory.

I just tried and failed to get my 8yo kid into a doctor's office. And I want to talk about that.
It CAN work. I've also lived in Strasbourg, France. And in comparison, there my kid would have seen a pediatrician within hours of a call.
This failure is a POLICY CHOICE by authorities. Not some impossible social hurdle.
Enjoy your amazing trip to beautiful New Westminster!
(trust me, if you know the area, this is kinda funny)

Well friends, I'm settled back in #Vancouver after an epic and indescribable #SilkRoad trip of a lifetime, planned for many years with my spouse and parents, all the way from Beijing to Kashgar, with stops in Luoyang, Xian, Dunhuang, Urumqi, Turpan, Kucha, Aral, Hotan, some 11,000 km as the arrow flies from Hong Kong. It would take me a book to tell you all about it! But I'll post some glimpses on this page, over time. 💖 #KaiSilkRoad #Travel #Asia

Brown says her mother faced #PoorConditions. As she explains, her mother’s tray in the hallway was often pushed out of the way and out of reach, she was rarely taken out of her stretcher to move around, and she wasn’t cleaned as often as she should have been.
A similar story came from a Stage 4 cancer patient who told CityNews she was on one of more than a dozen stretchers that lined the hall..

#Canada govt’s goal is to raise the amount of income the short-term rental operator will have to claim and, therefore, pay #tax on. #TaxChanges will take effect in 2024 & only apply to operators that are not abiding by provincial & municipal rules governing short-term rentals.
“Tidal wetlands are natural breakwaters,” says Eric Balke, senior restoration biologist and Fraser River Estuary program manager with the conservation group.
But not here. For decades, logs have broken free from storage facilities and industrial sites throughout the Fraser River Estuary. They appear as pieces of natural art dotting the landscape – but in reality, they are deadly.
If you were wondering why Prime Minister Trudeau came out today strongly against anymore civilian deaths because last night he went to a restaurant in #Vancouver and the restaurant was surrounded by protestors demanding a #ceasefire. He is listening to people. And now is being lambasted on Vassey Kapelos’ radio show for not sticking up for Israel enough by a bunch of 🦕 people whose livelihood is tied to Israel so…. That is where political punditry is @ in #cdnpoli

Neat, I've never seen Fox Sparrows outside my building before! But there were two of them together, foraging with the Juncos and House Sparrows.
A handsome Northern Flicker announcing his presence in the tree with his piercing calls. When they're on the ground or hugging a trunk, you don't get to see the rich orange undertails and underwings, so this is a treat for me -- Sunset Beach Park, Vancouver, Nov 13

A friend of mine just sent me a link to this Vancouver-based company that makes baking mixes and barley flour with rescued grains from local craft breweries.
According to their website, they’ve used 12,500 kilograms of grain from 7 local breweries in their products so far – and aim to rescue 40,000 kilos more by the end of 2023.
I love to see businesses upcycling valuable resources like this!
I don’t know that we’ll cover all these #housing topics we’ll get into, but we are gathering people for an evening panel and discussion on Nov 29th in #Vancouver https://lu.ma/cdu0r8f4 — @jai is organizing and has put together a great panel.
We’re including cohousing as part of the umbrella of collaborative topics that are part of #DWebYVR
