Re: BC Election and effect on RE

This pretty much sums it up.  The NDP have been waiting to take a crack at all things liberal, and are simply trying to appeal to younger voters with quick "solutions" on hot topics.  This is similar to the route that Trudeau took (now that reality has set in and he realizes the world is ...

Re: BC Election and effect on RE

It sounds about as doable as all the other NDP promises... Strange that you should say that. Gordon Campbell's long-serving chief of staff, Martyn Brown... "Martyn Brown: On balance, John Horgan's platform works for me" http://www.straight.com/news/895691/martyn-brown-balance-john-horgans...

Re: Jimtan tracker

as far as this board knows, Jim had a condo, and is only interested in the condo market.  The SFH market means little to him, other than as a measure of social injustice, so tracking how much he is up or down based on that metric means little. If he invests in the stock market he will be bankrupt fr...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

If you guys can recall, I called this rebound about 3 or 4 weeks ago when I saw the raw data in the field (homes selling or under contract).  Doesn't matter how you spin the numbers we are at peak or above it.  I still think we will see an increase of house prices this year of about 10% to 15%.  Co...

Re: Should we get rid of Jimtan and TDMA

In any real forum, both of them would have been banned by now. I agree with vanlord - jim has some pretty ridiculous ideas, but at least he puts them out there and defends them.  unfortuantly its come to a point where I'll probably need to put him on ignore like tdma.  who the hell engages trolls ho...

Re: New affordable housing policies for the young

There is equality before the law; in the justice system and for access to education. Then, there is the cultural empathy of equity.  That people deserve a fair break. Everyone should be treated as individuals. That birth circumstances don't matter. We are brothers and sisters. This is a Christian i...

Re: What do you see out there in March?

There are different kinds of trolls. The most common is the mischievous troll. They just want to get a rise of you. Ignore them, and they will fade away. The other kind of troll is the one who wants to dominate the cyberspace, They're the kind who will bully and threaten the vulnerable. Think of Am...

Re: What do you see out there in March?

It would actually help more if you just ignore the troll.  By definition, they will troll anything you post here, including actual facts , to goad you into replying... and then repeat cycle.  Its why they call them "trolls" The troll won't last long if you guys took turns to trash him eve...

Re: What do you see out there in March?

There's a troll running around the forum, insulting people and libeling Steve. I''m the only one willing to bring the troll down. Then, there's a realtor who attacked Steve's character and professionalism. This is not on. You may disagree with the bear assessment. Its your task to offer the counter...

Re: Predictions for 2017

If nuclear conflict were inevitable, I'm guessing China would take out Kim themselves.  The last thing they want is a nuclear war in their backyard. The situation is complex. China still needs North Korea as a buffer against South Korea + American allies, Remember the Korean War of 1950-3. How will...
