  • Christmas garbage: It’s the thought that counts

    Trump win could spur liberal resurgence By Brandon Kostinuk What!? President-Elect Donald Trump could be good for liberal Americans? Well, it isn’t so absolute as much as theoretical, and very much grounded in an expansive political estimate on a diverse and ever-shifting US political culture. But, nevertheless.

    Hello? Is anybody home?

    On Nov. 15, the City of Vancouver approved a one per cent Empty Homes Tax which will penalize real estate investors who leave their homes empty for more than six months out of the year.
