Vancouver Island

...Vancouver Island is simply one of the most beautiful places on earth. Home to majestic mountains, lush temperate rainforests, and miles of breathtaking coastline, its natural beauty can be found almost anywhere you look. In addition to its scenic beauty, Vancouver Island possesses a variety of wildlife including numerous species of birds, seals, killer whales, bears, otters and a fantastic selection of butterflies. With so much to choose from, photographers visiting Vancouver Island would do well to have a plan in mind so that they get the most out of their trip. When And Where To Go So diverse are the opportunities for wildlife and landscape photography on Vancouver Island that it is impossible to capture everything in a single trip, or a single lifetime for that matter. I would recommend prioritizing the features that drew you to Vancouver Island before focusing on capturing these images. I would also recommend visiting during the generally dryer, warmer, and sunnier months of April through October. The following are a few of my favorite destinations on Vancouver Island for nature photography: Scenic If you are looking for a great example of a lush, temperate rainforest there are few places better than Goldstream Provincial Park, located just 20 minutes from Victoria. An alternate option for those travelers who are feeling a bit more adventurous is to make the four-hour drive to the cozy town of Tofino, where miles of sandy beaches meet with towering......

Included will be a description of the business and its stakeholders and give their relationship to the business, as well as the internal and external factors that affect the company and its employees, contractors and owners. DESCRPITION: In 2004 Jennifer and Tony Smith started Woodland Cab LLC with one car, a Chrysler Le Baron, in North Clark County as an LLC. In 2006 they moved into Vancouver with eight car certificates and six cars on the road. Tony drove cab for the “original” Vancouver Cab for 11 years, giving him and Jennifer a good sense of the needs and wants of the community they were to serve. The company values describe the business, “We are not here to get bigger than our britches, we are here to serve the people and business of Clark County and surrounding areas. Our goal is to have the customer arrive safely at their destination in a friendly, timely manner”. Vancouver Cab has a few different names such as Battle Ground Cab, Woodland Cab and Clark County Cab. STAKEHOLDERS: Vancouver Cab has an unlimited base of stakeholders that benefit from the company.

Vancouver Riot 2011

...Nathan Kotylak: Individual Error or Mob Mistake? A look at the 2011 Vancouver Riot On March 13th 1964 Kitty Genovese was murdered outside her apartment as more than ten residents in the apartments above watched her die and did nothing. In the late thirties and early forties Adolf Hitler convinced men and women to effectively exterminate two thirds of the European Jewish population. On June 15th 2011, over 100 people were arrested for disorderly conduct by fighting, looting, and even burning police cars after the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, most notably Nathan Kotylak, seventeen year old student from Maple Ridge. What do these three situations have in common? They all involve the mob mentality in both an active and passive sense. While Kitty Genovese was being murdered, many residents in the apartments above displayed the bystander effect and followed Cialdini’s principle of social proof. They all followed the lead of similar others and did nothing to address the situation in hopes that someone else would deal with it. Germany ruled by Hitler was the most extreme example of social proof and also showcased the demonstrative tactics used by Hitler to control the minds of citizens. The Vancouver Riot followed a similar path to both scenarios- like those who watch Kitty be stabbed to death over a 30 minute time span, some Vancouverites did nothing. Like the thousands of Hitler followers who killed innocent civilians, some acted in ways that went against their moral and ethical......

Drug Trafficking This case took place in the Provincial Court of British Columbia, with Mr. Peter Andrew Hodgeson as the accused. Hodgeson is being prosecuted for trafficking cannabis marijuana, for breaching trust in connection with his duties as a member of the Vancouver Police Department, and for breach of trust in connection with his duties by improperly accessing the Police Records Information Management Environment (PRIME) to obtain details of an arrest for purpose contrary to s. 122 of the Criminal Code. This case may have been chosen by the editor because it relates to current issues, such as the legalization of marijuana and the current shut down of many drug houses throughout the lower mainland. This case is similar to many others, in regards to trafficking cannabis marijuana; however, it varies in regards to the trafficker. It is a rare commodity to have a member of a police department involved with the trafficking of cannabis marijuana, let alone any type of drug or illegal substance. This case is intriguing to the public because many want to know the outcome of the accused; whether his prosecution will be just or if there will be lenience because of his position as a member of the Vancouver Police Department. The public’s interest relating to this case tells us that society has become more intrigued in regards to the trafficking of cannabis marijuana, as well as cases that involve members of police departments. The......

...The second largest country in the world, Canada has no shortage of beautiful landscapes and unique sites for travelers to explore. From coast to coast to coast, the country is home to vibrant and culturally rich cities, along with incredible natural wonders. In Western Canada, the Rocky Mountains and cities of Vancouver, Victoria, and Calgary dominate most itineraries. In Central Canada, Niagara Falls, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec City, are some of the most popular possibilities. Awe-inspiring scenery, vibrant cities and a welcoming atmosphere all make Canada a popular tourist destination. As the largest country in North America, Canada is a vast land encompassing majestic mountains, spectacular coastlines, virgin forests, spacious prairies and Arctic tundra. Public transit is a great way for visitors to get around Toronto.  It's an easy, safe, and quick way to get around; in many cases it'll also save you a lot of money compared to renting a car and paying for expensive downtown parking. You pay a single fare for each one-way trip.  The same fare covers subways, streetcars, and buses within the City of Toronto. There are no fare "zones" to worry about.  You can transfer between routes for free as needed to reach your destination, but you'll need to pay a new fare for the return trip, or if you make a stopover (e.g. to shop, eat, or explore an area). Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)The TTC provides subway, streetcar, and bus service within the City of......

...Public Policy Concerns with the Ride Sharing Industry in British Columbia Introduction The commercial ride sharing industry is presently headline news in the province of British Columbia, particularly in the city of Vancouver where the company, Uber, has been trying forcefully to tap into the city’s passenger transportation market. “Commercial ride sharing is an arrangement where for profit, taxi-like services are provided by private drivers, using technology like smartphone apps. GPS is used to connect drivers with people seeking transportation, and payment is made online” (TranBC, 2014). Uber is an App based company that networks passengers with drivers that transport them to their destination for a fee. UberX is Uber’s low cost option in which the company’s only requirements for drivers are to be over the age of 21, have a valid driver’s license, personal auto insurance, and a four door automobile which has had a vehicle inspection within the first 30 days of partnership with Uber (Elliott, J., 2014). The drivers also need to have a police background check done, and that’s it. These bare bone prerequisites have lead UberX to be scrutinized by the provincial and municipal governments, as well as the taxi industry. The scrutiny comes from Uber refusing to abide by the rules and regulations set out by the Passenger Transportation Board and the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC), as they say the Passenger Transportation Act is archaic, and does......

Cap Rate

...Q3 2014 | INVESTMENT Colliers International Canada Cap Rate Report New construction Across North America, High Tech firms are migrating to downtown, centrilized regions rather than suburban areas. Historically, technology firms across North America have tended to locate outside of the downtown core, particularly to more suburban regions. This stemmed from less expensive rental rates, lower taxes, large parcels of space, free parking and an industry that had an endless supply of workers more willing to commute. The 1990s saw the creation of technology regions, such as Silicon Valley (California), the Kanata North Business Park (Ontario) and Discovery Parks (British Columbia). As technology has changed, the space requirements and talent working within the industry have evolved. In more recent years, technology companies, particularly web design, program design and e-commerce firms that rely less on hardware and more on software, have begun to move from suburban office parks to established downtowns or up and coming urban neighbourhoods. Although this trend is at quite different stages in various cities across North America, there are a few patterns that are consistently present. Most importantly, a shift has occurred in which the majority of business is conducted through the web, so space needs now focus predominantly on employees and company branding. Many high-tech firms are striving for stimulating, accessible spaces which promote creativity,......
