    JPMorgan Lays off Hundreds in Mortgage Business

    Yup. Hot market here in BC's Okanagan Valley. Prices dropping all over, sales inventory up. About freaking time.

    ‘Painful summer ahead:’ Gas prices reach 211.9 in Metro Vancouver, expected to rise

    Russel Brand, an out-of-work stand-up comic who found he can make more money generating clicks on YouTube than he could cracking one liners at seedy bars. Whatever pays the bills.

    Conservatives Get Austed

    What leads you to believe that? I have found Mr. Poilievre to be conspicuously short on actual policy suggestions, and the issues that he is using to froth up his supporters are more designed to stoking the populist fires than actually producing positive change. He is just a politician, and a...

    Gotta give her some credit for being willing to put herself out there like that.

    Alberta Premier Kenney and U.S. Senator Manchin on energy security – April 12, 2022

    I think it became obvious that Kenney was not the one to lead a fight against Notely's NDP in the next provincial election, the NDP have been polling well ahead of the UCP for some time now based largely on Kenney's unpopularity. While Brian Jean is a front runner in the race to succeed Kenney...

    Twitter Users Rip Jordan Peterson a New One

    Twitter users rallied around plus sized model and recording artist Yumi Nu after Jordan Peterson posted an unsolicited opinion on her appearance as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover model that she was "not beautiful". A storm of responses tore him apart prompting him to say he was...

    Diesel shortages and massive food shortages and price increases coming

    What am I missing here ? What does a war half way around the planet have to do with gas prices in Western Canada ? We produce more than we use, the costs of production and transport haven't changed, and the oil producers are bragging about record profits. It's clear who the winners are.

    Avatar 2 : The way of water

    I love this shit. There's something to be said for simple escapism.

    strange new worlds

    I'm looking forward to seeing how the series progresses, what sort of mix of "stand-alone episodes" and multi-episode story arc they choose. The first episode was pretty much an introductory, meet the new crew outing.

    Canadian economy continues to expand, GDP rose 1.1 per cent

    I'm not against it, I'm for it being distributed more fairly.

    Canadian economy continues to expand, GDP rose 1.1 per cent

    True. Could be a lot of things. GDP is not an accurate barometer of how average Canadians are doing.

    Canadian economy continues to expand, GDP rose 1.1 per cent

    "Cut government spending" is an easy default position, but things get awfully quiet when it comes time to suggest where the cuts should be made. At the other end of the equation, nobody in government wants to talk about raising revenues. The corporate tax rate is less than half of what it was...

    Canadian economy continues to expand, GDP rose 1.1 per cent

    There's that. If you read in investment circles there is a widespread consensus that we will be in a recession by the end of 2022, or 2023 at the latest. Efforts by central banks to cool an overheated economy and curb runaway inflation will have an effect on productivity by making it harder to...

    You have an odd idea of what constitutes "help". ;)

    Canadian economy continues to expand, GDP rose 1.1 per cent

    Something has been bugging me. Lots of people want to hang the blame for high inflation on the government "printing money", like all the pandemic relief that went out to Canadians. I'm wondering why inflation keeps climbing even after all the pandemic support was phased out. Coincidentally...

    Ottawa police make 7 arrests and tow 24 vehicles during Rolling Thunder bike rally weekend

    If you look at the "center" of Canada in terms of population, the point where as many people live to the west as live to the east, the center of the country is going to somewhere on the western fringes of the Greater Toronto Area.

    Ottawa police make 7 arrests and tow 24 vehicles during Rolling Thunder bike rally weekend

    The parking tickets should come as no surprise, one of the focal points of law enforcement this weekend was to forestall any possibility of another occupation and they made it plain from the onset that there would be plenty of "no stopping" areas. Apparently the handful of arrests on Friday...

    Ottawa police make 7 arrests and tow 24 vehicles during Rolling Thunder bike rally weekend

    There is certainly no shortage of those streams, is there reason to believe that their coverage is any more objective than the larger sources ? I have heard repeated mention on how things got a little ugly on Rideau Street last night when a small convoy of vehicles made their way into an area...
