Vancouver the 17th best city in BC

When it comes to job market opportunity the city of North Vancouver does well at a respectable 3rd in the province. Here in Vancouver we come in as the 17th best city in BC.

For the second year, BC Business has ranked 36 communities in B.C. based on their job markets.

The publication looked at core economic indicators – average household income, income growth, population growth, unemployment rate, people with degrees – and added a new indicator of average household income for the under-35 demographic.

Peter Miron, senior research associate with Environics Analytics, who compiled the data for BC Business, says measuring income for the under-35 age group “is a good way of measuring the overall economic health of a community.”

what is to become of the McBarge? thoughts, rumors anyone…

let’s have some fun with this one. i say the end result will be less than desirable given the secrecy of the whole thing and will somehow involve the taxpayers paying a hefty premium for what will ultimately be a service/attraction that won’t get used.

Hmmm…discussion about the Mandarin only strata council meetings on Reddits, seems most people there can actually analyze the situation and have a rationale debate, without resorting to *gasp* naming calling and use vulgar terms about a certain group of people.

So just so I get this right: 1 – Calling a region Mainland China a shit hellhole and everyone from there who happens to belong to “Chinese” ethnic group scums, locusts, thieves, etc is NOT racist, cuz it’s about a group of recognized people from only a certain region. 2 – Calling Chinese locust, scum, thieves, dirty bags, human garbages, etc is NOT racist – cuz we aren’t talking about all the Chinese world wide, just those from mainland China, and that one reporter from HK used the term locust first. 3 – Justin Trudeau not naming any chinese MP to his cabinet is NOT racist 4 – Cheering point #3 as a Liberal message of how Canada will progress in the future, where there is no place for Chinese scums is NOT racist – cuz again we are only… Read more »

For health services, Vancouver probably still ranked the best. I wouldn’t want to get sick with anything serious in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek….good luck trying to afford hotels here while taking care of a sicked loved one in VGH, Women’s or Children’s.

And do those places have high speed Internet even?? Or cell service??

The best careers are where you have the power to in artificial restrictions. Like Dr numbers are limited ultimately to maintain business and salary.

That’s why it’s a challenge to get Drs to small towns. FYI, an anaesthetic dr. Got a $50,000 signing bonus (not taxed) and a salary of $50,000/month plus 10 weeks paid vacation to go to a small town 3 hours away from a major centre.

Capitalism doesn’t work When with corrupt practices you can limit numbers of professions, taxi licences, etc etc etc.

@8 – Even if small towns get excellent doctors, for serious illness, you would still need the health infrastructures found in modern hospitals and small towns simply can’t support that infrastructure right now. Maybe when we get Star Trek type technology, it might change.

@southseacompany – I haven’t seen too much marketing for that movie which from early reviews seem to be very good. I hope the movie will do well very at the box office and expose the roles and mess Wall Street & gov’t corruptions created in the financial crisis. Still no one has been jailed yet for that debacle.

Confession time – BPOM and I had a “short” fling as he is a much smaller of a man than he claims thus the resulting bitterness. He is a very tiny angry loser. I left him because he was afraid I would expose him to the various neo nazi groups he belongs to (online membership only because he is still living with his mom….don’t take a shower if you are in his house). Any acknowledgement of his insanity would give this woman/ immigrant hating loser much more respect than he deserves…

@tedeastside – Last time I was there, about 4 years ago, during this time of the year, it was damp, cold, and deserted. People in San Diego was wearing thick dawn jackets freezing their butts off.

Whilst Vancouver is a bit rainy some days, LA is a bit shooty-murdery every day.

19, White and Asian people in LA are just as safe as they are in Vancouver, the vast majority of murders are black and Hispanics killing themselves. Here’s the stats if you don’t believe me.

Please don’t wish people happy holidays and then take a cheap shot at them, it’s extremely douchy – something only a lowlife would do.

Just stick with the cheap shots, then go walk in front of a bus.

OK, China is easing $50,000 USD per year currency exchange for its citizens, encouraging overseas investment by Chinese:

Buy more condos if you can before the price jump in Vancouver.

BEIJING—China’s campaign to turn the tightly controlled yuan into a global currency is crossing a new threshold, as the government plans to make it easier for individuals and companies to invest overseas.

The latest initiative, expected to be announced in the next few weeks by the State Council, China’s cabinet, will allow individual Chinese and businesses to directly purchase stocks, bonds and real estate in foreign markets, removing limits on such transactions, according to Chinese officials with knowledge of the matter. Though initially limited to people and businesses in certain designated free-trade zones, the proposal can be scaled up over time, the officials said.

@paulb fan:

I see no reason for any further rebound.

The BOC is in raising mode as opposed to lowering mode which sparked the last (and I do mean LAST) price rally, and consumers are even more tapped out than they were 2 years ago.

I’m quite happy to see sellers pull listings in expectations of a similar rally though. They’re in for a nasty surprise and I look forward to seeing the looks on their faces over the next few months.
