Hot Valentine's Day Style Tips And Trends

Sacha DeVoretz | February 10, 2016 | Canada Style
You can't go wrong with a new dress. Dresses are easier than they get credit for -- wear them solo, with a sweater, tights, booties, sandals -- you really can't go wrong. Bonus, it's easy to transition from day to night; just lose the jacket and add a heel.

It's Time To Protect The Great Bear Rainforest's Grizzlies

David Suzuki | February 10, 2016 | Canada Impact
The agreement between government, industry, First Nations and environmental groups to protect much of the Great Bear Rainforest should be celebrated. However, while the agreement helps protect grizzly bear and other wildlife habitat, it doesn't protect the bears themselves, contrary to B.C. Premier Christy Clark's claims at a news conference.

For A Happy Valentine's Day, Skip The Romance

Rachel Scott | February 10, 2016 | Canada Living
You heard me. Set romance aside with all of its ideas about candlelit dinners and flowers. Think about what you love to do. Rock climbing? Great! Museum-crawling? Delightful! Let go of the traditional and think outside the box.

Vancouver Housing Market Is Insane, But Not Addressing It Is Crazier

David Fine | February 10, 2016 | Canada British Columbia
It's only in this market, with it's unfettered influx of foreign bags of cash that this can happen. If our market was not in overdrive, we would not see such a flagrant waste of a perfectly good home and that's the thing that people are most upset about.

Will Canada's New Down Payment Rules Affect You?

YPNextHome | February 10, 2016 | Canada Business
By this time next week, you will no longer be able to buy a home in Canada priced at more than $500,000 with a five-per-cent down payment. Big deal or no deal? It seems to depend on what market you're in.

Allison Eberle | February 10, 2016 | Canada Travel
Vancouver is always a city that encourages its residents and visitors to get outside and explore. However, the city truly comes alive in spring. As flowers bloom and temperatures rise, Vancouver flourishes with outdoor activities, spring events and wildlife that wakes from a long winter's sleep.

B.C. Can't Take Another Four Years Of Christy Clark

Sarah Miller | February 9, 2016 | Canada Politics
The people of B.C. are waking up, big time. I'm sure this scares the hell out of Clark, who might finally be coming to the realization that every scandal, misstep or moronic statement can't be fixed with a smiling photo op in a hard hat.

Sacha DeVoretz | February 5, 2016 | Canada Style
Finding the right fit when you have a bigger chest is not fun. So many women have commented to me, "You are so lucky to have a chest." Not when it comes to finding clothes that fit. But as the fashion industry continues to expand its vision on body shapes, now too, there are styles to accommodate bigger chested women.

The Fight For The Great Bear Region Is Halfway Done

David R. Miller | February 5, 2016 | Canada British Columbia
The Great Bear Region along British Columbia's coast holds one of the largest unspoiled temperate rainforests left on the planet. There was a time when much of the rainforest was slated to be clear cut. But this week, environmentalists, forestry companies, and the 26 First Nations that call the rainforest home reached a final agreement that permanently protects the wilderness and benefits us all.

Logging Ban Saves The Great Bear Rainforest For Future Generations

Capt. Trevor Greene | February 5, 2016 | Canada Impact
On the first day of February 2006, a landmark agreement that has been called "one of the most visionary forest conservation plans on Earth" was inked by First Nations elders, the provincial government and environmentalists. Eighty five per cent of the Great Bear Rainforest -- at 3.1 million hectares, an area roughly twice the size of Vancouver Island -- is permanently off limits to logging.

Push Back Against B.C.'s MSP-Like Infrastructure Levies

Jordan Bateman | February 4, 2016 | Canada Politics
Road levy. Recreation and culture levy. Transportation for tomorrow tax. Dedicated road tax. Asset levy. Make no mistake: we want our cities to invest in infrastructure. Sewer, water, roads; these are core responsibilities of local government. But repackaging this spending with a new tax is a slap in the face.

Lobbying Is A Profession In Need Of A Makeover

Dermod Travis | February 4, 2016 | Canada British Columbia
Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there does seem to be a future for the industry. In fact, if we're not careful, B.C. could be overrun by lobbyists. Last year, there were 2,502 in-house and consultant lobbyists registered in the province, up from 1,451 four years ago. Whoever said the B.C. Jobs Plan wasn't working?

I Never Thought I'd Know Cancer Until It Hit Me And My Daughter

Roberto Valente | February 3, 2016 | Canada Living
Alina had emergency brain surgery the next day to attempt to remove the tumour, or at least get a biopsy and help correct the spinal fluid flow in her brain. I assumed the worst would happen as I held her and laid her down on the operating table for the anesthesiologist. I did not know then that I would be the last thing she would see.

David Suzuki | February 3, 2016 | Canada
Every hour, the sun bathes the Earth with enough energy to supply our needs for more than a year. There's no reason we can't harness more of it to cut back on polluting, climate-altering fossil fuels.

DeSmog Canada | February 2, 2016 | Canada British Columbia
High in the trees that have been growing in the Walbran Valley on Vancouver Island for up to 1,000 years, unique colonies of insects and invertebrates are thriving. However, new plans to log Central Walbran, outside of borders of Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park, are once again threatening a unique and vital ecosystem.
