Where will you vacation this year?

Where do you go for a vacation if you live in the best city *ever*?

If you do leave will you sublet your place if you own or rent in Vancouver? And if you do want to go far afield do you have the money left over for travel after paying your mortgage or rent in raintown?

Do you prefer to visit expensive cities or cheaper more out of the way destinations?

I’m going to take the family camping in Stanley Park, we’ll hunt for geese and bathe in the lagoon!

“It doesn’t matter what the “real reason” is, it’s illegal.”

Do you have a link for that?"

Jesus, dipshit, everyone knows housing discrimination is illegal. "source please" "link please"' etc. is lazy.

@Extremely rich Van house owner Supraboy: "I will never rent my house to them"

So you rent at a discount to a more "reliable" tenant. Oh let me guess: you don't need to discount because you offer such a stellar product your renters will pay through the nose just for the privilege of giving you money.

@jesse:

You hardly find such good tenants among white renters who are full of complains and always behind payment, and even they have stable and good job.Their top priority is gulping beer and drug donw to their throat at party time ;the paycheck can't even lasts few days after usual the ususal weekend party.Paying rent on time or even paying it at all is not their top priority,or even has any existence in their cognitive function at all.I will never rent my house to them .

@Extremely rich Van house owner.: Relatives of mine rented to a Japanese family for five years. No late rent, not even a service call. They fixed things themselves and were apologetic if an appliance wasn't working.

Now they quickly were getting a discount to market rent because they were such good tenants. As a landlord I would be fawning over these families. Is it improper if a certain culture's mores put responsibility for another's property as highly important and knowing this I pick a Japanese tenant over a locally born one? If both are qualified… It is very difficult not to play the odds.

To whom do they rent then since all Chinese are owners or landlords? Or they don't rent at all, just keep stuff empty for fun?

Was thinking about Larry's west side stats and the recent drop off. There were 123 fewer homes sold in the month after March 18th than the month before. If that trend continued, with each having an average value of around 2million according to Larry, that takes 250 million out of the top end for next month's average. Bear math: There were 1799 detatched houses sold in Vancouver with an average value of 1,155,007 which makes the total value 2,077,857,593. If the rest of the sales kept up at the same pace (and value of home) as March we'd lose 250 million and 123 sales so we'd get a new average of 1,827,857,593/1676 = 1,090,607 A drop of about 5.6% month over month As much as we might all hate hearing about the HAM being pumped by the local pimps, when… Read more »

@bourgeoisie meat beater:

"On the flip side, 30 per cent of the respondents said they had enough money saved to cover living expenses for at least four months."

Fuck, that's depressing and shameful.

70% of Canadians are basically poor.

Many Chinese landlords don’t rent to Caucasians because of unpaid rent and 8 out of 10 are behind their payment due to corrupted life style in drug and alcohol abuse;many of them are potential sex offender like what was happened in North York two days ago.

@Anonymouse: "Language is not covered."

Not explicitly, but a human rights tribunal would have little difficulty linking language discrimination to a prohibited ground. See here (the source is from the Ontario HRC, but similar principles would apply to the BC Human Rights Tribunal: http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/resources/Policies/lang/

"Would you say that requiring job applicants to speak English is discrimination based on the place of origin too? Of course not."

No, you would say it is a bona fide occupational requirement and be exempted from any claim of discrimination by virtue of s.13(4) of the Human Rights Code.
