A lot of reasons are given for why Canada doesn’t have a housing bubble. Almost all were said about the U.S. housing market before that bubble burst.

Love this. Check out this behind the scenes video of the making of Maclean's magazine's Col. Chris Hadfield cover: http://www2.macleans.ca/2013/10/02/behind-the-scenes-on-our-chris-hadfield-cover/

Hear from the guy who swallowed the human toe in Dawson City. Plus, a pic of where the toe is now (don't worry, it's not gross. Quite lovely actually)

Officially these people wouldn't be counted as subprime in any statistics, but that's simply what they are. Interest charges that are nearly 7 times your pre-tax income to maintain three homes?!?!? What *#$@ing bank is lending to them?

The reality is Ontario’s creaking workforce is likely to upset everyone’s plans, no matter which party wins.

This was supposed to be the year America fully paid down its debt, and other unlikely predictions for 2014 http://www2.macleans.ca/2014/01/01/imperfect-predictions-on-the-world-in-2014/ via @macleansmag

Made this after fooling around with Google trends data on searches for BB10 vs iPhone 5. If it felt like the new BlackBerry launch wasn't quite the event some might have hoped, this offers some perspective.
The inset circle was a grab from a separate Google trend search just for BB10 over the past 30 days. The sharp rise and sudden drop off isn't all that different from what we saw when the latest iPhone debuted. it's just a matter of scale.

A flashback newspaper ad from a time before Wikipedia: a limited-edition imported Chieftain Goatskin Encyclopedia Britannica for $5000 in 1974 (would be $22800 in today's terms)
