How could they lose? Start with a formidable team made up of business, labour, students, developers, environmentalists - even medical health officers - all united behind a plan for better transit in Metro Vancouver.

Has the Canadian federal election arrived a year early? Anyone following the current race to capture Vancouver City Hall could be forgiven for thinking as much. Little chatter about property taxes, sewer and water, parks and recreation, garbage and recycling and the ever-controversial, bike lanes; lots of talk about transit expansion, housing, the economy and the environment.
Vancouver's East Side may no longer be the affordable, funky alternative to the tony, high-priced real estate west of Main Street. At least if a recent sale is any indication. A house at 846 E 27th Avenue, on a 33 ft. wide lot just east of Fraser Street has sold for the asking price of $2,150,000.

Take dog-obsessed Vancouverites, add a demand for a sample of their precious pooch's poop, and mix in a threat of eviction for non-compliance, and you have a recipe for a landlord's permanent banishment to the dog house. That's what's happening at an apartment complex in Burnaby, B.C.
Vancouver voters are very lucky. As they head to the polls on Saturday, they have access to information that, in previous elections, was only available months after they would have cast their ballots. For the first time, civic parties have voluntarily revealed their donor lists, providing a valuable tool to see where electoral organizations get their money from and, therefore, who wants them to succeed.
