it used to be that 100% social housing developments received city subsidies.
Then Vision changed the meaning of "social housing" to at least 30% social in order to give subsidies to the developers who are now also cashing in on the remaining 70% rented at market value.
We're too apathetic! Montrealers would have rioted.
"Watch it, A******!" is what I said to you, because you would have hit me with your bike if I hadn't stepped back.
I was coming out of a store, and luckily I had seen you coming. I noticed you because you ignored the red light at the crosswalk and a pedestrian shouted at you.
You ignored him and kept coming. You were riding on the sidewalk, less than 10 feet from a dedicated bike lane. You went through a pedestrian-controlled red light. You were riding at a faster-than-walking pace. You had your phone in one hand and were staring at it, not at your path through the crowd. You weren't even wearing a helmet.
I always think about staying in the path of guys like you and meeting you with a fore-arm shiver, but instead I backed out of your way and said what I said. Your response? "Lighten up, Dude!"
Obviously you were right and I was wrong. But next time I might not move back, I might let you hit me in the elbow with your face instead.
I'm up late sometimes, window open in this heat and I laugh at dumb stuff online or w/e. my roommate told me that he doesn't get woken up, but I think I am. so I just want to apologize for being thoughtless.
But to be truthful I never thought we were meant for each other. I always thought someone better matched would come along for you. I think you should be more honest about your physical qualities. Maybe set your aim a bit lower. I wish we could have been friends but it was never going to be anything more. It might be for the best if you crawled off again somewhere and had a happy life without trying to guilt me for your problems.
I can't stand people who aren't aware of their surroundings. These are the ones who walk into a store and stop dead in the entrance while they figure out where to go. They walk down the sidewalk with their heads in their phones until I almost run into them and scare them half to death. They are standing on the bus or skytrain and move a whole 2 cm to allow me to get by when I have to get off.
I really can't stand you people.
I've been conflicted about my sexuality for many years........I'm curious about exploring with a woman, but am not very experienced sexually and not sure what to do. My attraction to women has never been acted upon, and waxes and wanes, but never goes away, and is more sexual.
I'm Muslim and can never have this found out....for obvious reasons. I've always been very accepting of others sexuality and preferences but struggle with my own.... I need help on what to do..... No one knows except for one ex years ago.
I'm a male slut, I am. I love women and I love sex and combine the two. I've had plenty of women tell me that it's different for a man to be this way. That we don't get judged the same way and people think it's cool.
Well that's not how it works at all. Most people tell me I'm sick, that I'll never form proper relationships and it's impossible for me to actually love someone. Both sexes tell me this, and both judge me pretty harshly so I keep things quiet. However my hats off to the gay male community, you've always been pretty understanding of who I am.
My heart goes out to the Uyghurs in China. Free the Uyghurs! Save them from disappearing in China and being re-educated!
I honestly hate it when people, especially teenage girls, scream their heads-off in the middle of the night for no good reason. Unless they're in deep shit, like being assaulted, robbed, etc., I think it's reasonable to expect people out and about to keep their voices down when folks are trying to sleep.
I would probably be dead if No Frills had not opened. Cheap prices compared to Safeway, IGA, and Whole Paycheck. Cheap groceries is great!
If I meet someone new, I could say I am a writer. Because I am. So are alot of people on here. And the publisher is The Georgia Straight. 75 per cent of the stuff I write gets published. Not any where else but that is ok. Failed screenwriter goals. Good times.
If you want to treat a woman like garbage after you sleep with her, you had better make sure your bedroom chops are up to par. Women will put up with abuse for bedroom skills, and women will forgive the lack of for wonderful treatment. To find someone that gives both is a rare and wonderful find. But someone who lacks both? You had better believe she will move on quick. To believe otherwise is to suffer from stupidity, or arrogance, or both. And no woman wants that.
In the digital age. Ghosting is so common place - whatever happened to having conversations like actual adults if there are issues in a relationship? It’s far easier to ignore texts or emails or simply block them on social media. I’m done, it’s just not worth the effort anymore. On the bright side...I spent the $ I would have spent in past years on birthday dinners & gifts or thanks for helping me out lunches, or I appreciate you picking me up and driving me someplace on a truly decadent spa day that I never could have previously afforded because I was always treating my friends...so at least there’s that.
... the assisted suicide regulations, and they're so stupid. Most people on PWD wouldn't qualify, because their disabilities are not imminently life-threatening or whatever. It's basically a way for old people with terminal cancer to off themselves.
Why shouldn't assisted suicide be available to people on PWD who don't enjoy any quality of life? Why should people be forced to stay alive? In many European countries where they have assisted suicide, most anything qualifies if the patient is consistently not enjoying life, would rather be dead.
I just don't understand why so many of them feel the need to dress up like they're on the effing tour de France or something, I find this very unique to the city of Vancouver. Most other cities cyclists just wear regular active wear or even their normal street clothes. So my question is why vancity, Why? Also, quit walking around inside stores with your bike helmet on you look so stupid....
