Problems with too much suckage at OV

Oh yeah, I forgot about The Village. Now it's all coming back! The Sweatered One is not amused. In other news: Mortgage debt growth slows, CMHC says The growth in Canadian mortgage debt slowed in the summer after Ottawa tightened up credit, new figures from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corp. show. The CMHC said Tuesday in its third quarter report that the refinancings it tracks fell by nearly 40 per cent at the beginning of the period, and was still down by 25 per cent compared to where it was before the government made the changes… “The level of household debt remains a concern but there are encouraging signals,” it said. “There has been a significant deceleration in the growth of mortgage credit since March, particularly in recent months, impacting the growth rate of total household credit."

The concerned homeowner said she recognized Lee and his white van from previous incidents over the years, and told him to stop.

Lee then said, "F*** you bitch," spat at her, leaned out the window of his van and punched her in the face, she testified.

She also noted Lee himself lived in a condo in a well-to-do West Vancouver neighbourhood.

HAM in action…

Thankfully when I kick it I won't have half the crap that guy has. Maybe he's dying from all the mold growing on the all the junk in his place.

I really don't get the whole Asian-immigrant recycling bottle thing in the city. I can understand the homeless bottle collecting to get some cash for booze, but this I do not get.

China decries Canada’s “bad example” in climate talks

The commentary published by Xinhua news agency accused Canada of undermining global efforts against climate change and damaging its own reputation in pursuit of short-term interests.

“While delegations from every country attend the Durban climate conference to discuss a second commitment period for the Kyoto Protocol, one can imagine the damage done by this ‘rumor’,” Xinhua said.

“Some are angry and some are depressed, but whatever the expression made by each delegation, they are united in their criticism of Canada.”

@bbb:

According to recent results of a satellite launched by Japan's space agency to measure CO2 in the atmosphere, Canada is actually a net absorber of CO2 while China is a net emitter. In fact much of the developed northern world is a net absorber, according to these findings.

This will be hard to shoehorn into the UN narrative of Western guilt and the new religion of eco sin, however, so expect it to be quickly forgotten.

The culprit has a Korean name. I don't recall the Koreans, north or south, being part of our HAM problem.

@bbb: I think the best response to the Chinese hypocrisy came from Kelly McParland in her article: "China wants Kyoto for others, delays for itself"

well, they had about 100 years time to be emitters before they outsourced their heavy manufacturing.

You must pay a lot of attention to the markets. No way a gain like that could be given back.

Looks like the coast is clear.

Good idea, maybe it'll keep BPOM and Fixie from racist HAM tirades for one day, that would be nice.

Do you like your job? Good, count yourself lucky, because only one in six workers agree with you.

"She was referring to a new study commissioned by Right Management that shows a whopping 84 per cent of employees in the United States and Canada are unhappy in their work and will be looking for a new job next year."

The great thing about not having debt, mortgage or otherwise, is you can go to school, take a long vacation, or just take time off to find yourself.

People are even more miserable than I thought they were. 🙁
