Downgraded growth projections for Canada again! Under 3% for 7th year in a row at 1.2% this year. Next year better but only  2.1% forecast. Lots of problems, perhaps the worst that Canada will be operating next year in a World economy that has been downgraded again.

The line-ups for health treatment has grown to 18.3 weeks, double since 1993. Why? Not enough money in our medical system. Now there is a movement to prevent you spending your own money on treatment. Sorry, you'll have to stay sick for 4 1/2 months to protect the "system" they say. Just like the only other country in the world that forbids private health care..... Communist North Korea!

In a superb lesson in market timing, after all of the howls of protest peaked and Vancouver passed a law to make housing more affordable sales have just collapsed.

The law has barely taken effect and recent numbers released show single family Vancouver home sales down over 70%. Down 86% in the suburb of Richmond!

It is going to be expensive for some people. Is it a bear market or correction?
