Ken Chung was driving 140 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on Oak Street, and was moving at 119 km/h when the impact happened.

This is an unimpeachable outcome of a preposterous decision of society to allow the sophisticated machines (performance cars, in this case) to be attainable to beings at a lower stage of development.

Former BCLib cabinet minister, current opposition MLA, and perennial douchebag Rich Coleman pondering a run for mayor of Langley or Surrey… or a stab at fed politics.

https://thebreaker.news/news/coleman-surrey-city-hall/

“Coleman’s imminent move is apparently why there is no widespread panic in the NDP about longtime MLA Leonard Krog throwing his hat in the ring for Nanaimo’s mayoralty. Instead of one late-2018 or early-2019 by-election, there could be two by-elections in ridings that are unlikely to swing. The NDP/Green alliance’s slim, two-seat edge over the BC Liberals may just hold after all.”

This is 100% + good news…

All bridges to and from Surrey will either be highly tolled or removed….this will result in the access from India to China to be severely limited.

This will prevent construction crews from Surrey working at $1/hour from building SFD and Condos for foreign locusts. As one VCI poster notes re savings of $57K and living in basement suites…such wise prudent savings can then manifest into affording to buy SFD next to Jenny Kwan, maybe even Mike Harcourt, SIDA and Glegol Loberston

At the World Cup, Chinese businesses have been quick to hijack the global platform to sell their wares to the world. On perimeter signage and video screens, at promotional booths in the forecourt of the main venues as well as on television and around Moscow, the sight of Chinese characters and the sound of Mandarin voice-overs is inescapable…

This is the BC Liberal/Vision legacy. Populating the city with foreign nationals who don’t pay taxes. 200,000 have flooded in and aren’t paying a dime of tax. They live in luxury condos and mansions and declare poverty incomes. Vision under Gregor continues to approve luxury condo developments whose developers market them in China exclusively because no one here can afford the price tag. The BC Liberals basically trashed our education system while allowing triads to launder millions through BC casinos and our real estate market.

Letter to the editor: Real estate agent expresses regret over words and insists they were not intended as a threat

https://www.straight.com/news/1090696/letter-editor-real-estate-agent-expresses-regret-over-words-and-insists-they-were-not

At the June 7 West Vancouver public town hall meeting, I regrettably stated, “The NDP should be shot,” in response to the high level of frustration my clients and I are feeling.

My frustration, and that of others, stems from the provincial government’s new taxes and the influence they are having on our housing market.

As a North Shore realtor for more than 40 years, many of my clients are seniors who are facing uncertainty. This loss of equity (25 to 35 percent) and increased tax gravely impacts their retirement funds. Most bought their homes when prices were much lower than current assessed values. They worked hard, paid off their mortgages and were rewarded with increasing property values.

Just me
Guest
Just me

And by the way there was no apology. The tone was aggressive.
The substance was that these sellers bought their homes when young for 300k and now they have a God given right to sell them for 3 million.their retirement would suffer apparently if they sold for 2.3 million instead. Makes your heart bleed doesn’t it?

Re: Realtor threat…

Whether one agrees with it or not….a large number of people will depend on their home as their retirement fund. If it doesn’t work out as planned, the backwash could impact society at large in a number of ways.

On the flip side, how much longer can we afford, let alone tolerate, the wages,benefits and pensions of the civil service?

The average person has no control over the price of housing (or any other commodity). Majority of Boomers(and older) were caught up in eras of high interest rates and various economic boom- bust cycles that subsequent generations never experienced. Debts, Deficits and inflation literally forced the economy to be juiced via near zero interest rates for the last decade. The first warning was in 2008-2009 collapse… Blaming Boomers who have paid off their mortgage and whose homes have appreciated from 5 figures into 6 figures is ridiculous. If they had the power…why not make the homes worth 7 figures ? With interest, over say 30 years they have paid over 3X’s the original purchase price. It is what it is. As usual….Gov’ts and Central Banks create the mess and get off scott -free, and ROTFLMAO as the public infights amongst… Read more »

Gotta love the ending:

“I hope that the provincial government will work with local experts to find a solution to affordable housing that doesn’t erode the equity people have earned in their homes.”

The only solution to the affordability crisis is lower prices. Everyone who says otherwise is a liar. People are finally understanding it.

M-
Member

As I see it, there are two possible solutions to the housing affordability crisis: lower prices, or subsidized housing for locals.

The first choice involves depressing demand, and “eroding equity” in peoples’ homes. The second involves taxing somebody in order to subsidize homes. There aren’t enough high-income-earners to tax, to be able to make a meaningful dent in the affordability issue.

However, there’s a lot of unearned equity in houses. Taxing some of that equity will both (1) reduce demand, and (2) generate some cash to be able to provide housing subsidies.

What will unfold is not the size of the house per se…McMansions 1.0 have maximum sq ft allowable built…but the age etc will make them to expensive to upgrade…so expect McMansions to depreciate to lot value in a decade or so and be replaced by McMansion 2.0.

Under construction should fall by 50%. That would lead to mass unemployment and further price drops. This is a process and prices bottom a year after that provided the 50% drop is maintained. In the US this was the pattern. They were building twice what was required then it all slowed down, the prices dropped, construction fell by 75% and stayed there. If you bought 1 year after construction fell by 50% you would have done very well in most of the hard hit markets. Can this happen here? Can we over build? Will foriegn money flee? With 1 Trillion in US securities coming to the market in the next year I do not see a lot of money left over for the property market.

They claim it takes 2-3 years to get a given project to completion stage.

Pre sale suckers learned that the developer has most of the a law on their side and can cancel a project under a laundry list of excuses. The most recent wave was the so -called added (= unprofitable ) costs of construction.

My guess is the next wave of project cancellations will be developers who realize the market is tanking and its best to leave the project dormant ie no excavation or other preparatory work = cut the losses.

Einstein was a racist? His 1920s travel diaries contain shocking slurs against Chinese people

China is a “peculiar herd-like nation,” its citizens “often more like automatons than people,” he writes. He says “even the children are “spiritless and look obtuse.” After commenting on the alleged fecundity of the Chinese, he laments:

“It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races. For the likes of us the mere thought is unspeakably dreary.”

1. Anything he saw at the patent office wouldn’t have been something he could have transformed into an idea like General Relativity. Patents are for temporarily protecting inventions.
2. Science is about offering the best possible explanations for our observations. Much of it gets refined over time, and that doesn’t take anything away from the original work. So say that his theories have been proven to be “bullshit” is naive at best.
3. He debated Niels Bohr. Famously.
