Vancouver is one week away from the most important civic election in memory. Will housing policy define the results? Who on council potentially deserves another shot? And did we actually just squander nearly a half decade of effective civic governance? Spoiler alert on the last question: we did. Research Lawyer and Housing Advocate, Peter Waldkirch, returns to the show to hash out the last four years with Adam & Matt & in the process provides a useful scorecard for each of our current city councillors. How ridiculous did council meetings get when few had the stomach to watch? Who are the bomb throwers & who pushed for plans to move our city forward? And, most importantly, is it time to clean house? Listen up and get out and vote!
We discuss the start of the Fall market, the ongoing impacts of interest rates and inflation, the top areas for investment in the Lower Mainland and the province, and the type of thinking required to make lasting moves in real estate.
Back in action! Cory and Melissa have returned to the studio. This week we are joined by Jeff Hancock who specializes in land development and is joining us all the way from the William Wright Kelowna office.
