Fact Check

Proof that Vancouver's development might be just a tad bit out of control: the total building permit values for the first six months of 2012 was over $1 billion. This is a 39% increase over the same period the previous year. Despite the arguably over-development of the city, these numbers speak volumes of the economy and have created an estimated 6,000 construction related jobs. [Vancity Buzz]
