  1. Post of the year to date. But without question, we will continue to argue about taxes, ICBC and which provincial party breaks the most promises.
  2. Notley is threatening to cut off BC from AB oil

    If the higher cost of gas in blamed on inter-provincial trade wars, I'm going to be choked. Knowing the media and our system of politics, this is already the plan.
  3. Investing in the stock market - Discussion

    What is your time frame? Gold miners and Junior gold miners have been kicked around for the last few years. Its only sa matter of time in that industry. Silver also has more upside potential than gold, imo.
  4. My apologies in advance for not reading past this page in the thread. I'm going to cut to the chase and just say, interest rates haven't 'had to rise' for 40+ years, who says their going to change in any meaningful way, now? 'Because they have to', isn't a reason.
  5. The BC Real Estate Discussion Thread

    How can Cdn mortgage rates not be tied to the BoC rate? If the BoC changes the rate, right away that changes the spread for lenders. If they want to maintain the spread they change the rates based on the move the BoC made.

    I get what you're saying, but I don't think it is that cut and dry. The other factor in valuing the CAD is the oil price. All things being equal, if the price of oil were to move to $60+, I think the CAD would strengthen as well. Also, lenders are going to factor in over concentration to one asset class over another, so that can play a role as well. Can you overlay the US 10 year, with average fixed term Cdn mortgage rates on a long term chart?

    How do you figure that?
  8. "The media which got everything wrong, will now tell you all the things that will happen, as a result of the thing they said wouldn't happen." Take anything posted with a mainstream source with a huge grain of salt.
  9. Nope, but that's besides the point.
  10. Close this thread. The election is done. What's left now is speculation and more garbage reporting from the media.
  11. Here is another option for results:
