Historic accord splits control of properties

They’re not making any more land, but we still seem to be finding some to build on.

The 21 hectare Jericho lands in Point Grey is part of an agreement to split control of three Vancouver properties between a crown corporation and three First Nations – the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nation.

David Eby, MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey, said he was heartened to learn that a deal had been made regarding the Jericho Lands.

“There had been a lot of people in the community, myself included, that believed this land would be tied up in negotiations – potentially in court – for many years,” he said. “There’s a very clear and well-established traditional use of this land by First Nations. They were certainly entitled to it and it sounds like they received a fair share of their lands. It was certainly a surprise to hear that it has happened at all, let alone so quickly.”

Mr. Eby said the significance for the community he represents is that development will proceed faster than many anticipated.

“I would not be understating it to say that many members of the community that are neighbours to this property are incredibly concerned about the type of development that could potentially be located at this site,” he said.

“I can tell you everybody from affordable housing advocates to environmental groups … to the West Point Grey Homeowners’ Association has weighed in with different perspectives about what should happen here. That consultation will be challenging, but it’s critically important that it happen.”

Garbage piling up around charity bins on Vancouver’s streets

http://globalnews.ca/news/1593838/garbage-piling-up-around-charity-bins-on-vancouvers-streets/

vancouverite logic: “by leaving my garbage on the side of the road i’m helping someone and saving crap from being put in the land fill. i feel so good about myself, i think i’ll go to lululemon and get a treat.”

Coffee talk around the office is that both the cancellation of the iip and weakness in Chinese real estate sales and prices is what is the key contributor to the mood shift in terms of buying intensity on westside sfh.

As most of us recognize, when a frothy market changes direction after a long climb, interesting things happen.wonder if there will be any impact on the hot Surrey building lot/dating market…guess only time shall be the arbitrator of that.

With the viaduct being knocked down, the Strathcona area will feel more like downtown than ever before. The city is being transformed. If you want to live centrally, you have to pay. Otherwise … you’ll be like Westside Realtor posting the opposite of what’s happening on a blog no one reads. LOL 🙂

so 100 ppl in texas have been contacted citing possible links to ebola patient.

hopefully patient zero didn’t have a secret lover, visit any sex trade workers, or have any illegal habits and is afraid of telling officials about those because he doesn’t want anyone to find out.

The VANCOUVER REALTOR HUNGER INDEX for September 2014 was 56%. How does this compare? The 17-year average for September is 52%. At 56%, the 2014 September VRHI was higher than 8 years and lower than 8 years since 1998.

Ebola has gone airborne. The Government is lying to everyone. Do people think that Western governments always tell the truth and that only the Chinese government tells untruths?

‘I don’t see a bubble’: Joe Oliver says three big markets distorting housing numbers.

Why doesn’t spineless joe pressure CMHC to put a cap $400.000? That will cool the three big markets instantly.

Interesting, Yattermatters states that listings are down in September, but according to this article, there has been a surge in listings in Vancouver. Who to believe?

Van Sun; “Pete McMartin: Vancouver — Lotus Land or Lowest Land? Sagging incomes among city’s most educated raises questions about job quality”

http://www.vancouversun.com/Pete+McMartin+Vancouver+Lotus+Land+Lowest+Land/10253972/story.html

“Last week, Andy Yan, the researcher and urban planner with Bing Thom Architects, gave a talk at SFU’s downtown campus, during which he asked his audience a question.

Where, he asked, did they think Vancouver ranked among the country’s top 10 metropolitan areas in terms of median incomes for those between the ages of 25 to 55 with bachelor’s degrees or greater?

“It was the first time in my career of giving lectures,” Yan said, “when an audience gasped at the answer.”

The answer was:

Dead last.”

@space889 – Geez…I thought Canadians are above such petty acts as identity thief and stealing…I thought that was reserved only for scums like Chinese people….

@Tiger – Uhm…maybe drug dealers or hookers?? Home “spa/massage parlors” make a lot of money and probably more private and better than condos where one don’t have full control and worry about strata mgmt knowing about it.

Seems lots of local Caucasians still got the yellow fever despite having full on hate for scummy mainlanders…

Bull! Bull! Bull!

it’s ironic that vancouverites dump garbage to avoid paying fees when the city’s claim to fame is being the home of 1-800-GOT-JUNK

American news camera man in Liberia now has Ebola. If it’s so hard to get, how did this happen?

It seems to spread very easily.

@20 “she doesn’t want to offend the totatitarian pigs with whom she wants to do business with.”

In other words she is smart and doing what is in the best interest of BC. Too bad more politicians were not like this.

Speaking of smart politicians. We should congratulate Harper for making this recent land deal with the First Nations so quickly. He knows the bubble is about to pop and wants to unload the land before it does. Even taking a 50% interest selling the land at bubble prices is better than waiting a few years and selling it after the crash.
