[…] Looking for a starter home? How about this former cocaine and fentanyl packaging site? […]
Very, very BIG NEWS !!! Canada just won the World Cup. Just watch and see housing prices go up very high. Vancouver will go up, but Surrey will go up much even higher. Everyone will want to live in Vancouver now. My developer buddies are now planning a big parade from Surrey all the way to Vancouver. We love soccer & rugby. Next, the Rugby World Cup will come to Surrey. Thank you Prime Minister Trudeau, the great one. Free roti for everyone with salted chickpeas.
The NDP said no. Vancouver is out.
It was a pointless bid. Only 10 games for Canada, and they’ll be spread across 3 cities? There’s basically no chance of seeing a decent game. But I’m sure many will pony up hundreds of dollars so they can take selfies whilst watching Serbia play Costa Rica.
just like the N. American bid was the only plausible option for FIFA despite all the staged build up to this announcement, the same will happen when it comes time selecting a host city for the 2026 Olympics where after the usual nail biting and sleepless nights the folks behind the Calgary-Vancouver bid will be left holding the bag

Langley condo owners who never moved into their units take legal battle to a higher court
Former B.C. premier Mike Harcourt is speaking out about the government’s new speculation and luxury home tax
Even the NDP don’t support each other.
Yeah, Harcourt is all about profiting from real estate and shady insider moves. He sure looks a lot like Gregor: a guy who seems like an archetypal self-serving real estate pumper than he does any kind of left-of-centre politician.
Who is stealing plants from Queen Elizabeth Park?
Victoria community up in arms over neighbour’s backyard fowl
I think I’ve figured out why some of us have been at odds here on this blog. That’s because you’ve focus on Vancouver and Burnaby while i focus on the valley.
Browsing MLS, here is the price for teardowns.
South Vancouver $1.3 million
North Surrey $900K
Thats is oddd. Vancouver should be much higher or North Surrey or especially Abbotsford should be much lower.
Canadian hospital sues mother of million-dollar baby, amid growing concern over Chinese birth tourism
Dozens of ‘baby houses’ have sprung up in British Columbia to house pregnant Chinese women seeking automatic Canadian citizenship for their children, with one in five births at Richmond Hospital involving non-resident mothers
Former cocaine and fentanyl packaging house listed for 419k or $784/sq ft
“Material Latent Defect: Previously used as an illegal substance packaging house for cocaine/fentanyl/marijuana.”
“financing may be an issue”
>>> but being conveniently located in the swanky up and coming neighborhood near Kingsway and Nanaimo should be enough to get at least a few remaining FOMO buyers excited in this property full of “potential”
According to a report card on seniors’ poverty, BC has the worst rate in Canada, which clocks in at 33% higher than the national average
Vancouverites, according to a survey conducted by San Francisco-based payments startup Square, are the stingiest tippers in the country
What is your point? Japan has no tipping culture with the most superb customer service. Does it mean Japanese are stingy? I don’t think so.
You guys are so self centred on housing west of Cambie that you have no idea what’s happening in the valley. Stuff you used to be able to afford.
Prices on condos up 60% as per latest report.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. When NDP referdum fails or we have an election soon and Libs get back in to power, good luck finding anything in the lower mainland.
At least the Libs brought in he FBT and it had a huge impact. Ever since the NDP got elected, they allowed this shitshow to get worse.
If anyone gets their panties tied in a know over my comment, tell me why prices has to rise 60% under the NDP???
Wow oh wow!
The NDP are backtracking bigtime!
Prices in valley up 60% in 18 months!
I am really sorry I voted for the NDP.
Housing ministry backtracks on fixed-term lease loophole
” In a surprise move, the B.C. Housing Minister has backtracked on a controversial proposed change to the B.C. Residential Tenancy Act that outlawed the use of fixed-term rental agreements except in the case of the landlord or their family moving into the unit on a long-term basis. The latest change is expected to benefit owners of recreational property, such as those who rent a cottage or ski condo during the off season and then take it over for two months in the high season.”
Hahaha. What did I tell you guys?!
“property owners can boot out tenants if the landlord moves in for just eight weeks”
Wow, have the NDP have back tracked on every housing promise now? Basically all a landlord has to do is leave a place vacant for 8 weeks and they can kick a tenant out for any reason. They don’t even have to move in., just “take it over for two months”. The NDP are a disaster. Things have never been worse for housing in BC. I hope Airbnb paid them well for this.
That is bad. Waiting for someone here to defend this move…
They just enabled a loophole to evict people and then rent at a much higher rate just 2 months later.
Breaking News! Justin Trudeau will run for the B.C. Liberal Party with Christy Clark as deputy premier and special adviser. From my insider sources & realtor buddies, he will resign from the federal Liberal Party since he knows the B.C. NDP will lose the snap election and fail the referendum. He’s doing an excellent job making the broke American Trans Mountain great again. Billionaires getting their bonuses. Trudeau will remove all spec taxes and destroy the NDP to make B.C. great again ! He’s planning on cancelling all the money laundering investigations because there isn’t any in the first place. Remember sales only go up, prices even higher.
Get lost. “Oracle”. Such an idiot.
See Saw ?
…. is that you ?
It’s the one that want to be like me. He’s a loser. Mine has the green avatar.
You can scroll a few weeks back and you can know who it is. But can’t waste my time.
This is getting real folks. There is open talk about an election being called if the speaker resigns and the NDP guy vacates his seat.
RIP Referendum. NDP had a chance to make change on housing. Back to opposition for another 16 years. They deserted their base. And the base doesn’t even know it.
Liberals will cancel all the housing changes in the first month. And these NDP morons are still studying the issue.
