Canada’s recent real estate price boom spurred a lot of investment into construction. The country is now building more units than it ever has. Most of this supply won’t be hitting the market in the near term, but when it does – it’s going to relieve a lot of pressure for prices to move higher.

Mall landlords have sought to find alternatives for ailing properties; one option has been designating 50% of the mall to retail space and the other 50% to entertainment, such as sports fields to amusement parks. Another option has been the construction of multifamily complexes on the property to keep consumers close to stores.

The death of American malls is real, and it's not being overstated, the worse has yet to come as more stores are expected to close in 2020.

O yes its friggen COLD !!

ICBC gives her a 40 per cent discount on her personal car insurance for having a clean driving record. But when her boss, Brad Hoy, decided to make her the principal operator of one of his logging trucks, the insurance quote jumped $8,000. Simply having her as an employee will likely increase the insurance on his entire fleet of five trucks, costing him an additional $20,000 this year.

It’s enough to make someone reconsider hiring a new truck driver, Hoy said Saturday from his home in Fort St. James.”I’m not that kind of guy, but it makes me wonder if others will avoid hiring young drivers.”

Hoy began Sabertooth Transport in 1993 with one truck. With the help of his wife Nadine, he’s since expanded to five trucks with five employees, including the 26-year-old Klassen. But as the B.C. forestry industry continues to struggle, there’s little chance he’ll make up the increased cost of insuring her.

If you are blue-leaning Californian who wants to escape the Golden State’s drift into madness but stay on the left coast, Oregon might be a reasonable alternative.

Ditto for Colorado, which has turned from red to bluish over the last decade or so as Californians increasingly head for the hills, so to speak.

But that trend also highlights a problem: Some of the people fleeing destructive blue-state taxes and regulations appear to drag their pro-big-government philosophy with them — apparently oblivious to the fact that those policies destroyed the state they are trying to escape.

One can even see that dynamic occurring in Texas. For a decade or so, liberals have been predicting (not to mention hoping) that Texas’s growing Hispanic population would turn the state from deep red to purple and perhaps even blue.

But there is another factor: Texas has become one of the primary destinations for disaffected Californians, as more and more California businesses have concluded it’s time to go where they will be appreciated.

A quiet crisis is unfolding for U.S. hospitals, with bankruptcies and closures threatening to leave some of the country’s most vulnerable citizens without care.

As a gauge of distress in the health-care sector has soared, at least 30 hospitals entered bankruptcy in 2019, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. They range from Hahnemann University Hospital in downtown Philadelphia to De Queen Medical Center in rural Sevier County, Arkansas and Americore Health LLC, a company built on preserving rural hospitals.

Canadians invested less in building and improving real estate last year. Statistics Canada (Stat Can) data shows the value of residential building permits dropped in November. The declines are being seen across Canada, but Toronto and Vancouver are seeing larger declines.

Canadian Residential Building Permit Value Down Over 1% YTD
The value of residential building permits across Canada are falling compared to last year. The total value of permits reached $4.734 billion in November, down 3.98% from the month before. This represents a decline of 6.86% from the same month last year. Stat Can attributed the decline to multi-family homes.

Coffee time is any time with Mike Martins

Iran announced early Saturday that it had accidentally shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet, blaming human error because of what it called the plane’s sharp, unexpected turn toward a sensitive military base, according to a statement issued by the country’s military.

The announcement reversed Iran’s claims that mechanical issues caused the crash of the aircraft on Wednesday, which killed all 176 people aboard. It had persistently denied that Iranian military defenses had downed the aircraft, a Boeing 737-800.

The Iranian military's statement said the plane “took the flying posture and altitude of an enemy target” as it came close to an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps base. It said that “under these circumstances, because of human error,” the plane “came under fire.”

The statement said that the person responsible for shooting down the plane would face legal consequences, and that the military would undertake “major reform in operations of all armed forces” to make sure that such an error never happened again. It said Revolutionary Guard officials had been ordered to appear on state media and give the public a full explanation.

International pressure had been building on Iran to take responsibility. American and allied intelligence assessments have said that Iranian missiles brought down the plane, most likely by accident, amid the heightened tensions between the United States and Iran.

In a statement of his own on Saturday, Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, tried to place some of the blame on the United States, saying on Twitter that the disaster was “caused by U.S. adventurism led to disaster.”

Top 10 Cheapest States to LIVE in the USA

To recap — The city was described as having “extraordinarily friendly residents,” as well as an amazing multicultural community who band together to make visitors feel welcome and safe. The survey also found that locals are quick to help tourists and the “community vibe” makes socializing a breeze.

About one in five mortgage borrowers, or about two million households, are struggling to make repayments, despite record low interest rates, according to analysis by Finder, a comparison website.

Pressure is expected to grow over coming weeks as the expense of Christmas and the new year increases demands on disposable income, particularly for families, the analysis shows.

And the dumb thing is it's not like there isn't enough room to put a stove or even a dishwasher. The space is clearly there! The landlord has just chosen to put a weird set of drawers that where the stove would go.

Also how hard would it have been to at least get matching cabinetry? Did they run out of white drawer fronts at Lowe's that day? Just asking.

But honestly, I still can't get over the no window thing..

A shopkeeper on the New South Wales South Coast says locals are facing "bedlam" as hordes of people jam the roads in a bid to escape the path of the bushfires before the weekend.
With a state of emergency taking hold from tomorrow in NSW, and authorities calling on people to leave affected areas, lawless behaviour is reportedly on the rise.

It May Mean Investors Are Fearful Of The Housing Market
Historically, the price of gold and the U.S. housing market have shown an inverse correlation to a large extent during times of high volatility.

A downturn in the economy does not necessarily sway investors to choose gold over investments in the housing market and vice versa. Rather, if gold rises, it means investors are losing confidence in the housing market; if housing thrives, investors are moving out of safe havens.

According to private investor Adam Katz, it is because housing and gold are two dominant stores of value that investors rely on to keep wealth.

🌍Dollar Tree Inc. intends to fill a lot of positions at its upcoming Nationwide Hiring Event.

The discount variety retailer plans to hire more than 25,000 associates at its fourth annual Nationwide Hiring Event hosted at Dollar Tree and Family Dollar stores across the country on Wednesday, October 16. Interviews will be conducted at every U.S. store location from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. The company is looking to fill permanent full-time and part-time openings in the roles of store managers, assistant store managers, cashiers and stocking associates, as well as seasonal holiday help.

A multi-billion dollar Singaporean food company is selling 89,000 megalitres of Australian water to a Canadian pension fund.

The mega sale of Australian permanent water rights comes as the country is crippled by one of the worst droughts in its history.

On Tuesday, NSW brought in a complete ban on hoses as part of the toughest water restrictions implemented for more than a decade.

The average monthly cost of a two-bedroom apartment in Vancouver is $2,915, while a one-bedroom costs $1,828 a month.

With these figures, Vancouver ranks first in Canada for the most expensive two-bedroom monthly rental rates and fourth in the country for one-bedroom rentals.

minimum wage is that it might increase unemployment. That's an argument free-market economists often put forward. The argument is that there's only so much money for payroll, and if wages go up, business owners won't be able to afford as large a staff. That's a valid concern, especially for small operators, though real-world data doesn't necessarily bear that out for the economy as a whole.

The U.K. brought in a national minimum wage in 1999, for example, but unemployment actually fell between 1999 and 2007 despite regular increases in the wage. Unemployment didn't spike until 2008 when the Great Recession disrupted most of the world's large economies.

Driving Up Pricing
Classical economic theory also predicts that when wages go up, prices go up. That may be true, at least to a point, though economists are divided on the subject. Both sides can draw on studies and stats to make their cases, but that theoretical argument doesn't matter as much as your own experience, in your own business. If payroll is one of your highest costs, and you employ a lot of minimum-wage staff, you might well find yourself needing to raise prices after a wage increase.
