FYI - the market this year is HORRIBLE!! A lot of people (even local Realtors) think that a few sold signs around town in the spring means that the market is improving. Look at the numbers.

Powell River, BC Civic Election - Get out there and vote? This weekend's civic election is going to be one of the most interesting in a very long time in this supposedly sleepy and remote city on the west coast of British Columbia. There has been a lot of local controversy in Powell River, with the current Mayor looking for his fifth term, and only one person, a local businessman, is running against him. Council has been right in the thick of it. This editorial from the Powell River Peak Newspaper sums up some of the goings on. Following the antics is great fun, but our little city needs to move on.
