Cute story by Vancouver Sun Tiffany Crawford
In the surf-swept communities of Vancouver Island’s west coast, such as Tofino and Ucluelet, time has literally slowed down.

great issue... is this fair?
Adam Saint had planned to stay in his West End apartment for years. It was in a funky heritage building with renovated interiors, just off Davie Street and a few blocks from the beach. But as the end of his first year approached, the building’s owner Gordon Nelson Inc. told him that the rent for his one-bedroom suite would jump from $1,550 to $1,850 a month if he wanted to stay — an increase of close to 20 per cent.

Travails of the rich.
Ah, the smell of fine leather, the guttural growl of 490 Italian horses and the wind in your hair: there really is nothing like owning a Ferrari! How do you put a price-tag on “pure pleasure,” zero to 60-plus in four seconds?

I was a water waster until this summer. Now I'm trying to mend my ways. We could all use a few conservation tips from Europe, where water has long been a scarce commodity.
Living here in the Lower Mainland, we can, at least until now, be forgiven for taking our water for granted. This is a climate where, for most of the year, women in heels sink in soggy boulevards and a blowout lasts a day or two before the humidity plumps the hair back to its normal state of frizz.

There is a certain irony to one of the strongest NDP ridings in the province allowing their affordable housing stock to be mowed down, with nothing to take its place.
Pity Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. Some of the Lower Mainland’s most seasoned anti-poverty activists are gunning for the NDP stalwart and his council over the continuing demolition of walk-up apartments near Metrotown.

Bike theft epidemic makes it tough to ride in Vancouver. My two cents on why we need more secure bike parking.
One miserable Saturday in November, Caio Malouf biked to his job at Taco Del Mar in Harbour Centre. As usual, he locked his bike to a rack outside the mall door. It was still there at 4 p.m., but when he left work half an hour later, it was gone.

Stay tuned!
Who is B.C. dealing with when it invites Petronas, the Malaysian state-owned global energy giant, to play a lead role in developing an LNG industry?

Fabulous read on the UBC debacle.
Let me begin by stating I have no idea why Arvind Gupta was drop-kicked so early in the first quarter as president of the University of B.C., or even if he was drop-kicked. Possibly, he left of his own volition. Whatever. But I have a theory!

A whacky new rescue for North Shore Search and Rescue. Salmon!!
North Shore Rescue will decide next week if a team can descend a 60-metre canyon on the Seymour River and rescue 262 coho that are stranded in a pool directly beneath a devastating rock slide that has prevented them from travelling upstream. “We will be meeting with North Shore Rescue next week to see if it’s feasible for someone to go down there and net the fish and have them brought up so they can be taken to the hatchery,” Shaun Hollingsworth,...

Pete McMartin artfully points out the hypocrisy of holding newsers to bemoan climate change while pursing an energy strategy that will increase our carbon footprint.
Premier Christy Clark, preoccupied of late with ushering in the Age of Liquefied Natural Gas, which will make us all rich, took time out of her busy schedule to visit her Kelowna constituency this week. Her constituency was on fire. There were photos and footage of the Premier looking very concerned at the charred ground, and of her speaking with the firefighters who had manned the front lines. She announced sombrely, as if to reflect her resolve...

Ouch.
A person knocked unconscious by a closing elevator door, another reportedly tossed to the ceiling by a speeding elevator, and a child’s boot shredded when caught in the teeth of an escalator — all incidents involved elevating devices reported to the B.C. Safety Authority last year. While elevators and escalators are meant to move people efficiently and safely, freedom-of-information documents obtained by The Vancouver Sun show that’s not always t...
