The price appreciation gap between detached single-family homes and condos has been increasing for the past 20 years. Back in 1977 there was very little difference in the average price of a condo compared to a single family home. Now that gap is huge! The average detached home is worth almost 3 times that of the average condo. This new initiative will help developers cut red tape and allow them to build denser housing projects faster and will result in more applications to rezone existing single family homes into multi family strata condos and townhomes. The math is quite simple if you redevelop more single family land into condos it will increase single ...

Vancouver's new housing affordability initiative is only going to increase the value of single detached homes even more, in my opinion. The price appreciation gap between detached single-family homes and condos has been increasing for the past 20 years. Back in 1977 there was very little difference in the average price of a condo compared to a single family home. Now that gap is huge! The average detached home is worth almost 3 times that of the average condo. This new initiative will help developers cut red tape and allow them to build denser housing projects faster and will result in more applications to rezone existing single family homes into multi family strata condos and townhomes. The math is quite simple if you redevelop more single family land into condos it will increase single family land prices even more because it reduces the supply of these single family homes. When you have fewer homes out there the value tends to increase. On the flip side by building more and more condos you will create a moderating effect on overall prices for these townhomes and condos. This is why we have seen very little price appreciation in the Downtown Vancouver condo market over the past 5 years while the price of detached single family homes in Vancouver West side, East side and Richmond are up quite substantially over the past 5 years. Now, before all the Real Estate haters start sending me emails, remember I am not saying the price of detached homes is going up and never coming down. I am simply stating some basic market fundamentals at work in the lower mainland RE market. Prices in the short term 1 to 8 years can go up and down and if you look at the average Vancouver price graph I showed you from 1977 to 2012 you will see there were a number of downturns in price in that 35 year chart. You will also notice that the long term metric is up... way up!

Charles Montgomery explores what happens when you take an abandoned NYC space and infuse it with social experiments. The results are surprising and inspiring. An award-winning author and urban experimentalist, Charles Montgomery is the author of Happy City which the New York Times recommended as essential reading for their city’s new mayor. Working with the BMW Guggenheim Lab, the Museum of Vancouver and other institutions, he creates experiments that challenge us to see our cities—and ourselves—in entirely new ways. Montgomery’s Home for the Games initiative led hundreds of people to open their homes to strangers during the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Operating in cooperation with the BMW Guggenheim Lab and the citizens of New York City, he transformed an empty lot into a device to maximize feelings of altruism. His writings on urban planning, psychology, culture, and history have appeared in magazines and journals on three continents. Among his awards is a Citation of Merit from the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society for outstanding contribution towards public understanding of climate change science. His first book, The Last Heathen, won the 2005 Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-fiction. He currently creates programs with the Museum of Vancouver and other institutions that enable people to use their own cities as laboratories, and he continues to advise and conduct lectures for planners, designers, and decision-makers across America, Canada, and England.

ExoUniversity.org launches 2012 Lecture series April 22nd at the Roundhouse (Vancouver, B.C.) with Forum on time travel with an emphasis on teleportation, a quantum access sustainable transportation source for the future VANCOUVER, B.C. - ExoUniversity.org, a Vancouver-based initiative offering continuing education in Exopolitics, PsiSciences, and ExoSciences, is launching its 2012 forum lecture series April 22nd at the Roundhouse, covering subjects now intentionally excluded from university curricula, though taught in sequestered projects of the national security state and defense contractors. 2012 ExoUniversity Forums, launching April 22, 2012 The first of eight monthly ExoUniversity Forum Lectures is scheduled for April 22, 2012 from 1 pm -- 6 pm PDT at the Roundhouse, 181 Roundhouse Mews, Vancouver, B.C. The Forum is entitled: "An introduction to time travel with an emphasis on teleportation" with Andrew D. Basiago & Alfred Lambremont Webre In the April 22nd event, ExoUniversity faculty member Andrew D. Basiago, a former U.S. chrononaut with DARPA's Project Pegasus, will discuss the people, places, technologies, and experiences associated with time travel with an emphasis on teleportation at the time of its emergence in the US defense-technical community of the early 1970's. ExoUniversity faculty member Alfred Lambremont Webre, lawyer, cosmologist, and futurist, was the founder of Exopolitics and is one of the leading political commentators on the implications of the Time-Space Age. Alfred is author of Exopolitics: Politics, Government, and Law in the Universe (Universe Books, 2005), a book that was time traveled by DARPA from 2005 (or later) to 1971 (or earlier), making Alfred a "person of interest" to the CIA. In this first of eight forums, attendees can: ● Learn the true history of time travel, the real Philadelphia Experiment; ● See how teleportation will revolutionize transport in the 21st century; ● Become part of the movement to achieve public teleportation globally. ExoUniversity.org faculty for its forums in 2012 Forums include Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, great-granddaughter of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and former U.S. chrononaut William B. Stillings. A full description of the ExoUniversity 2012 Forum Lecture Series can be seen at: www.exouniversity.org Tickets for the April 22nd forum and for the 2012 series can be purchased below: http://www.exouniversity.eventbrite.ca/ There is a 25% discount for advance purchase. Certificate -- An ExoUniversity.org Certificate will be given to each person completing the full 2012 ExoUniversity Forum Lecture Series. ExoUniversity: Exosciences, PsiSciences, Exopolitics "Quantum access technologies, like teleportation, are the future of transportation," says ExoUniversity.org founder and Exopolitics author Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd. "Knowledge about these technologies is now a closely guarded secret of the national security state. The only way an individual wishing to pursue a career or entrepreneurship in Exosciences, PsiSciences, or Exopolitics can do so is to join an intelligence agency as a spy or a classified project as an employee of a defense contractor. Many find such options morally repugnant. ExoUniversity.org opens this knowledge to the public. "I approached one of the colleges in the B.C. University system with a curriculum for Exopolitics," Webre continues. "Officials did not say the Exopolitics curriculum was invalid. They stated that as an institution and faculty their minds were too closed to incorporate Exopolitics into their curriculum for at least 10 years. Ten years is too long for us to wait. The future is now. With the help of colleagues, we have founded ExoUniversity.org to offer continuing education in ExoSciences, PsiSciences and Exopolitics today and not tomorrow." Exosciences includes such disciplines as energy medicine and quantum access sciences resulting in technologies such as time travel, chronovision, and teleportation, and other sciences now effectively kept out of the scientific mainstream educational canon. PsiSciences includes parapsychology, a discipline that seeks to investigate the existence and causes of psychic abilities, near-death experiences, and life between lives using the scientific method. Exopolitics is the science of relations among intelligent civilizations in the multi-verse. ExoUniversity.org is a division of ExoKnowledge Society, a B.C. non-profit Society.

"Where Are We in the World?" is a series of films that feature sites around the Lower Mainland shaped by often ignored or hidden histories of struggle and agency. The focus of this new initiative is to provide a strong foundation experientially to answer the question of "where” we are in terms of UBC and Vancouver as places on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories. This series is a partnership between St. John's College and Aboriginal Initiatives - Centre for Teaching Learning and Technology (CTLT) and is funded by the 2014-15 UBC Equity Enhancement Fund.

In support of the City of Vancouver’s environmental and community engagement Initiatives, the Vancouver Strathcona Basketball Club created the healthy living community project. This has become an annual project with the intention to promote and educate inner-city children and youth about the importance of healthy nutrition, sustainable living, and community participation. It has also enabled a platform and experience for young leaders to plan, develop and implement a community initiative in the inner city neighborhood through active games, education, role modeling, mentorship and leadership. This year’s Community Day was held on April 9th, 2016 at Strathcona Community Centre, and well attended by over 100 youth and children.
